Weddings in Houston: How does your formal fine-arts training come into play in your cake artistry?

Jasmine de Lung: In every way. As I’ve trained culinary students to make cakes, it’s clear to me how much of what I do is informed by my prior art education: mixing color, composition, sculpting, etc. I use my art training at every moment I’m working on a cake.

We Can’t Get Enough Sweet Stuff From Wink by Erica!

Wink By Erica Houston Wedding Cakes Photo: Wink by Erica

You guys, WHEW, what a week!! Follow ups and photo sharing with our incredible guests from last week’s I Do! Wedding Soiree, gathering gorgeous items and putting together some truly awesome photo shoots to show off in our uh-mazing new issue (hitting newsstands right after Xmas), running hither and thither to trunk shows and open houses…it’s been nuts…in a great way. So, as we slide on in to the weekend, and THREE WHOLE DAYS of World Series Astros baseball (!!!), we wanted to take a little time out to share something sweet with you. Namely: Wink by Erica.

Who’s Erica, you ask, and why is she winking?? Well, this lovely native Houstonian and UT alum happens to be an absolute genius baker and dessert designer, and she’s probably winking because in less than a year on the local cakes & desserts scene (it’s a thing, look it up), she’s already a rising star and media darling. And with good reason. Her wedding cakes are gorgeous to behold and sublime to devour, her macarons are magnifique, and her custom donut towers, styled dessert tables and take-home treat favors are absolutely divine.
