Nine Cakes, a boutique cake studio that’s won over Brooklyn and the wedding world in the since opening in 2008, is opening an outpost in Hudson, NY to serve the blossoming upstate wedding industry and to mark milestones in the everyday lives of local residents. Today, Friday, May 10, master pastry chef Betsy Thorleifson will celebrate the grand opening of her Warren Street storefront, and everyone is invited to stop in for a cup of fresh coffee and a sample of the artful tiered cakes.
Thorleifson's tiered, custom cakes are made from scratch. Her baking alchemy transforms fresh, simple ingredients (butter, sugar, flour, eggs, and cream) into majestic works of edible art, that reflect the personality of the customer from flavor profile to visual aesthetic. The designs range from whimsical to understated elegance to romantic floral opulence. In her own words, Thorleifson is "always striving for a handcrafted look, with an eye for detail and well-balanced composition."
Next is a by-appointment consultation and tasting session, at which customers will be asked about your vision and shown mouthwatering pictures. (Customers are welcome to bring along any inspiration images to will help to zero in on the vision.)
