We are back this week with our Vendor Spotlights, and this week we are focusing on Megan from Megan Joy Cakes. She is truly talented when it comes to cakes and sweet treats. This wedding season we already have two weddings booked with her and we can’t wait to work with her and see the creations that she creates for each of the weddings! If we are lucky we will get a taste of the cakes as well! Read on to catch up with our interview with Megan and see what inspires her.
I am passionate for creating cake that is more than just “cake”. Your wedding day is one of the biggest and most special days of your life, so why conclude the evening with a cake that pales in comparison to everything else that day? I like to craft my cakes so they eat like a plated dessert- composed of balanced, contrasting flavors and textures. It truly elevates the cake eating experience!
I feel like I’ve already had several dream projects! I am so fortunate to be based here, where we have such amazing clients with big visions, and all the talented planners and vendors who make them come to life. That being said, I would love to get a job for a destination wedding- somewhere tropical. It would be fun to work with a completely different setting, and squeeze in a mini vacation too.
What has been your favorite weeding or event you’ve ever worked/attended?
Last September, I made my cousin’s wedding cake, in Indiana. All of my family lives there, and it was really neat to share my work with them, especially my grandmothers. They are some of my biggest fans and it was truly a family affair- I had lots of help!
What makes you excited to go to work in the morning?
I get excited about creating cake designs and flavors that are always pushing me to do better. The whole process is very artistic to me and I love working with my hands and just seeing where a design ends up. It’s relaxing and addicting!
What’s your favorite trend you are seeing in your industry?
I like that clients are paying more attention to their wedding cake- what goes in it, where it comes from, and how it’s designed. The cake isn’t an afterthought anymore, it’s become a very important part of the wedding day and is being regarded more as a work of art.
We loved getting to know Megan and discovering what inspires her. We especially loved getting a look at some of her master pieces that she has created! If you liked what you read, check her out on her social media outlets and look into booking her for your wedding! After all wedding season is just around the corner, and 2016 spots are already getting booked!
