Sugarcoat It Studio Takes the Cake


Why a picture of the "Beneath The Great Wave off Kanagawa"? This painting is the inspiration for one of Markell's cakes. Pretty cool, huh?

If you want a cake that tastes as good as it looks, then check out the spectacular cakes made and decorated by Krista Markell. Below is a teaser of a short article I wrote for Diablo magazine about Markell and her cakes. 

“For Krista Markell of Sugarcoat It Studio in Berkeley, seeing her works of art vanish is all in a day’s work. Markell’s medium isn’t oil paints or acrylics…” Read more.  

Be sure to check out Markell’s portfolio of cake designs. Even if you’re not in the market for buying a cake, it is fun to see how creative Markell is with her cake decorating.

    Hi Erica! Yes! Her cakes are amazing! The photos on her website do much more justice to her art and creativity than the Diablo photo.

    I’m sure how long it takes to make a cake depends a great deal on how big the cake is or how involved the design is, but she said it takes 24 hours to make a wedding cake — and I’m pretty sure that is 24 hours of solid work, not from one afternoon to the next. Now that’s dedication!
