JMB: Eileen, what makes your services unique?

Eileen: Most brides want that smooth fondant look, and I can give them that smooth finish with buttercream.

JMB: These cakes are all so beautiful! Have you ever been featured in a magazine?

Eileen: Yes, I’ve been featured in both The Knot and Occasions multiple times, as well as Oh-Brides magazine.

Chocolate and strawberries — one of my favorites!


JMB: Do you have any “funny wedding stories” for us?

Eileen: I do — it’s about my own wedding, though, not designing cakes.

JMB: Tell us about it!

Eileen: Well, I was at the altar with Clay and we’re saying our vows when behind me I softly hear “Auntie Leenie.” First I ignore it, but then again, a little louder, “Auntie Leenie.” Now we’re beginning to laugh. One last time, in a much louder voice, “Auntie Leenie!” I had to turn to address my grand-Nephew, Alex. He said, “Auntie Leenie, your dress is too long!” 🙂

JMB: Ha! That’s hilarious. Now let’s talk about some of your interests. Do you have a favorite hobby?

Eileen: Yes, I crochet afghans — when I have the time! And speaking of hobbies — I know how much you love books, so I thought you would especially enjoy this cake:

JMB: Hey, a book cake! Fantastic! Speaking of books, what are some of your favorites?

Eileen: I love anything that Nicholas Sparks writes.


JMB: What’s your favorite food?

Eileen: I’m a meat and potatoes girl.

JMB: What is it with you people and the potatoes? First DJTod, and now you. I never would have thought of anyone’s favorite food as being a potato.

Eileen{rolling her eyes}: Look who’s talking! Mangoes and pineapple? Pineapple pizza?? What the heck?

JMB: Okay, fine. My husband thinks it’s weird too. Eileen, do you have any parting advice for couples who are planning a wedding?

Eileen: Yes. After your wedding ceremony, and before you enter your reception to greet your guests, take about 15 minutes – just the two of you- to sit and have a bite to eat. Then you can greet your guests.

JMB: I’ve never heard that one before. I like it!

Eileen: Well, thank you for interviewing today, Jenny.

JMB: You’re very welcome, Eileen!
