A truly artist baking incredible cakes,  making sure they taste just as good as they look! When you live abroad, it’s always nice to find places where you can find a little bit of your culture around and I am glad to have found Sweet Corner Bakeshop.

During the photoshoot I got a chance to taste a couple of the delicacies, including their famous sea salt chocolate chip cookie and the Brazilian cheese bread. I also got a quick interview with Rodolfo where he shared some of his secrets about the art of baking and how to run a successful business in NYC.

Interview:

1- What does it takes to have an established Bakery in NY?

A combination of planning, hard work, courage, luck, and obviously passion, to do what you love in order to make your dream of becoming a successful business owner in NYC come true.

2- What would you recommend a customer to taste if it is his first time in the store

I would recommend our top seller cookie, our sea salt chocolate chip cookie. bakery

4- What are your inspirations when you are creating ?

I try to gather as much information as I can from the customer, get a feel for what him or her is looking for on a custom cake, and then I try to translate all that information into a perfect cake, adding my personal touch when I see a fit.

Rodolfo has been featured in many competitions and wan a good amount of prizes with his creations. It is very motivational to see person succeed and get a chance to share his Wonderfull creations with the World. I am looking forward to see what is going to be his next creations.

For the shoot I was inspired by the end of summer and Sweet Corner’s bright and beautiful cakes colors. My first outfit was a belted baby blue dress with a bring pink statement necklace, and my second outfit was a light pink skirt with a sheer overlay and a blue bodysuit top with a deep v neckline. I paired the outfit with a thick choker featuring a girly flower in the middle! The outfits were provided by Tasch NYC. You can use the coupon code carla for 25% off.

Fashionplate- Kate Bamboo Jersey Dress at Momofuku Nishi

fashionplateCheck out this week’s fashionplate featuring our sky blue bamboo jersey dress at Momofuku Nishi.  I’ve been meaning to check out this spot for a while as it’s been open in my hood for a while.  Met a friend here to catch up, luckily we made a res because it fill up fast.  I tried the Penicillin and my friend had a beer.  We then proceeded to splitzies some things which is my usual MO.  We got the raw beef which was really good, just wish that is was cut into smaller pieces, as we had to ask for a knife.  We also had the scallops which was yummy.  Then we decided to noodle it out.  The signature butter noodle was creamy and delish, you definitely didn’t miss the cheese/cream component.  My friend thought it was a tad sweet however.  The spicy beef noodles were also very good and had a solid kick to it.  I definitely will be back for happy hour or brunch to try out some more things.  A good addition to the hood.  See how I styled our bamboo jersey dress for this fashionplate below.

Fashionplate- Farrah Romper at Dinnertable

fashionplateCheck out this week’s fashionplate featuring our cute little crochet back Farrah romper at the speakeasy resto Dinnertable in the East Village. To find Dinnertable just walk to the back of The Garret East through the curtains and flip the switch for food.  We started with a cocktail at the Garret East first which was delish and then made our way back for that much coveted 9:15 ressie.  It’s small and intimate and we were lucky enough to be seated at our own non communal table. We ordered some sparkling water and new cocktails and decided to split a few things.  We started with the chrysanthemum salad which was solid, although to my dining companion, a salad is a salad lol. The Sicilian red shrimp were quite good and pretty spicy.  We then moved on to the baked mussels, which everyone is right and are amazingly delicious.  I wish there were more.  And for the main course we split the lasagna bolo which was super cute in the individual little rossettes, I need to start making my lasagna like this for dinner parties.  It was cheesy and crispy on the edges, everything you want out of your lasagna.  Do not skip this for reals.  It was mostly couples which is a given.  I can’t wait to see if they switch up the menu for winter.  See how I styled the Farrah romper for this fashionplate below.
