Princess Megan is about to make her Mark(le) on high society across the pond and we’re all
a-flutter with wedding season spirit which, in our case, means a boatload of buttercream. Should you experience any #cakefails this weekend, join us on June 10th for our class on the classics with The Vintage Baker to perfect those pastry skills in time for sheet cake season around Independence Day (though we wouldn't turn our nose up at any #fail covered in frosting).
It seems fierce females aren't just taking over on foreign soil - from New Jersey to Oklahoma, women are increasingly making their mark as future game changers in a still largely male dominated profession.
Ladies - home and abroad - caps, top hats and tiaras off to you.
