Karen Portaleo and her amazing creations

To continue on my food theme..... more tasty creations.... And no, they are not designer handbags, they are amazing cakes created by Karen Portaleo.

The cakes are the work of Highland Bakery, based in Atlanta, Georgia. The team of bakers is headed by Karen Portaleo, a former clay sculptor, She said: "When a client comes in I try and get a feel for their event and what they want - normally they are trying to tell a story about themselves. I try not to take much longer than two days because the cake has to be tasty and fresh. If it's a really complex cake then we will work through the night to keep it moist.
