My Controversial Cake

 Never knew a cake could create such a controversy! 

Ever since I published the photo of my "Autumn Baskets" cake it has been the topic of controversy. It has been stolen and posted on other baker's websites. I've been told that I was "inspired by Susan Carberry" (whom, at the time, I had never heard of nor had I ever seen her amazing cakes) and that I needed to give her credit. Others have copied and posted this image to their facebook claiming that they created it and It's been the topic of mile long threads on facebook cake groups. Things like this have been happening for two years now. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that my cake would cause such a stir.



I'm floored and at the same time flattered! 



So there you have it...



My controversial cake!


I designed this cake for an autumn pig roast my family was invited to in Pumpkin Town, South Carolina. My good friend, Sandy Stutes helped me put some of it together.



So just for the record, this is an original cake designed by me, Veronica Arthur of
 With Love & Confection.
