Christopher Russom is a serious artist who creates imaginative works every day with sugar, flour and butter. Put them all together with a bit of this and that and voilà … some of the most amazing wedding and novelty cakes imaginable or, perhaps we should say, beyond imagination.
We had the pleasure of viewing his one-of-a-kind masterpieces at his newly relocated bakery, Christopher Garren's Let Them Eat Cake in Costa Mesa.
You may have seen his work on Food Network cake competitions, where he won on both "Cake Boss" and "Ace of Cakes." He now appears on the WE network's "Amazing Wedding Cakes." Go to letthemeatcake.net for a mind-boggling visual treat. Better still, drop in to the bakery for a cup of coffee, a delicious pastry and an informal tour.
Ever since Russom was a child, he was always drawing, painting and entering art competitions. When he was 9 years old, he began baking.
