Winchester, VA (PRWEB) September 10, 2013
Cake artist, Sarah Myers, of High Five Cakes in Waverly, Ohio recently joined Icing Images® prestigious list of professional cake decorators endorsing the Spellbinders® Sweet Accents™ die cutting and embossing system.
A new Sweet Accents kit, the Sarah Myers Edition, now bears Myers name and reflects her preferred choices of embossing folders and die cutters packaged with the Sweet Accents system, the only food-safe die cutting and embossing system on the market.
“Icing Images has changed my life when it comes to cake art. With iDesigns™, the patterns are never ending. They help achieve that crisp clean appearance that cake designers strive for. Sweet Accents by Spellbinders broadens those horizons with embossing and cutting delicate details that would normally take hours to achieve.” - Sarah Myers, High Five Cakes.
Myer’s Spellbinders team members include Peggy Tucker, CMSA, School of Cakeology, TLC and Food Network star; Edna De la Cruz of Design Me A Cake and Food Network Challenge winner; Mike Terry, CMSA, Bakery Pros, TLC and Food Network star; Teri Tarbox, Simply Cakelicious; and Sidney Galpern, Simi Cakes.
Myers specializes in sculpted, wedding and tiered cakes, operating out of her cake studio in Ohio. Her full portfolio of cakes can be seen on the High Five Cakes' Facebook page.
A former fine art student with sculpting and painting experience, Myers worked in the corporate world but one day decided to quit her job and apply her artistic abilities to cakes. She easily adapted her sculpting skills to modeling chocolate, fondant and gum paste, succeeding in creating professional looking cakes without having ever taken a cake decorating class. Three and one-half years later, Myers is a rising cake star.
Myers’ accolades include several wins at live cake challenges such as the Garden State Cake Show and National Capital Area State Show.
At the National Capital Area State Show this past March, Myers met Icing Images owner, Deborah Coughlin, when competitors were issued the additional challenge of incorporating masculine elements in to their cake designs. To satisfy the requirements, Myers requested Coughlin print out masculine edible images. Myers’ interest in Icing Images products grew from there and the business relationship between the company and Myers blossomed.
“There was something special about Sarah. She was creative and highly intelligent like most decorators I’ve worked with, but this boisterous, fun person I met had a heart of gold and an unselfish nature. She is not only extremely talented and thinks outside the box, but she is one of those few truly good people that you get the opportunity to meet. Icing Images is very fortunate to have Sarah as a part of the team.” – Deborah Coughlin, Icing Images owner.
Myers recently published a tutorial in edible frames, layering various iDesigns edible prints cut from the Sweet Accents machine and featuring her own wedding photo. Many of her cake designs feature Icing Images Premium Icing Sheets™ used in a variety of ways: edible banners, signs, messages, picture frames and cake toppers.
The Sweet Accents system was specifically designed for Icing Images by Spellbinders, crafted with die cutters manufactured from stainless steel coated with Teflon. The system consists of a non-electric plate compression device, various sandwiching plates, die cutters and embossing folders. Icing Images customers use this product to work with Premium Icing Sheets.
Myers will be demonstrating Icing Images products throughout the United States at cake shows and at days of sharing with local cake club chapters.
Icing Images has been a leading distributor of edible image and edible paper art supplies for over a decade. Edible image supplies such as edible image printers, edible ink, icing sheets, and electronic and die cutters are used by cake and confection decorators throughout the world.
