Essentials For Inspired Decorating

Let me help you decorate you next cake or make your next craft project easier and better! Silicone molds for cakes, edible butterflies, premade decorations...They all combine to expand your options when it comes to dressing up a special-occasion cake. And the molds can also dress up handmade soap and polymer clay or resin projects!

I've owned A Cake To Remember LLC, a custom wedding cake business in Richmond VA since 1999. In 2016 I stopped doing custom cakes and started concentrating on making gumpaste flowers and other cake decorating supplies.

I also have a second Etsy shop,, where I sell non-edible paper décor, digital downloads, and polymer clay items.

I also love helping other people learn to decorate cakes that will make their friends jealous...I've made THOUSANDS of cakes (seriously) and I'm glad to help people figure out what they need and how to use it to make their cake inspiration come to life.

I was an art student, and I used to design costumes for the theater. I also did a lot of gardening before I developed too many allergies, so I do enjoy combining the design part of it with flowers.

By using premade decorations you can take a homemade or a plain cake and fancy it up to make a prettier cake than you'd be able to afford otherwise. I've sold a lot of flowers to brides who were having friends or family do the baking, but who didn't know how to make the flowers.

The silicone molds in my shop were originally intended for cake decorating only, but I've noticed that a lot of other crafters buy them to use for jewelry, candles, soap, etc. Feel free to send me any questions that you have about alternate uses for the molds, since some molds will work better for certain purposes.

I also do videos for decorators on youtube at and sell tutorials on Etsy that are designed for decorators who want to make their own flowers. I think that anyone can learn to work with gumpaste and make beautiful flowers to put on cakes, it's just a matter of practice!

Frequently asked questions
Do you accept custom orders, and can you match my colors?

It depends...I'm not currently taking custom orders for gumpaste items. I might be able to change the color on certain wafer paper files., but you should check before ordering. I can't match colors exactly but can get them pretty close (except for purple, that's a tricky one in food colors.)

Can you rush my order or do overnight delivery?

I don't do anything overnight delivery. I might be able to do priority express in the U.S. (one to two day delivery) for certain items, but it's expensive and I don't guarantee delivery times since that's out of my control. If you need something fast please contact me before placing the order, or I may have to cancel if I can't fill it within the time frame you need it.

How long does gumpaste or the edible butterflies last, and how soon should I buy them?

I ship items as quickly as I can, so don't order things months in advance unless you prefer to have them on hand early. I can't hold orders until specified dates months ahead of time due to issues with processing times on Etsy.

Gumpaste will last for months if it's stored correctly, but I'd order flowers for weddings or gumpaste succulents about a month ahead of time. Wafer paper butterflies are good for a year or more if they're kept dry and out of sunlight to avoid fading.

All gumpaste should be opened CAREFULLY and stored in a dry area at room temperature. Don't refrigerate gumpaste, wafer paper or sugar sea glass, moisture is the enemy of sugar and starches, and can soften these items and ruin them.

Why don't you ship some items internationally?

Because sugar attracts moisture, and customs warehouses are apparently humid, I've had some gumpaste and fondant items ruined while they sat in customs. Because of this I don't ship certain flowers or pearls outside the US.

Can you make me a custom mold?

It depends. I need to have an actual item to use to make a mold, so I can't make one from a picture of a piece of lace, for example. But if you have something that you're willing to send to me I might be able to create a mold from it. I usually can't make a larger or smaller version of molds that I already have listed (again, I need an original to make a mold from).

I'm not sure what I need to buy, but I have a picture of a cake that I like.

If you have a picture, I can help you figure out what you need to buy. I do need to know the sizes of the cake tiers, since the amount of flowers or other decorations needed will depend on how big the cake is going to be.

How long does it take for you to put my order in the mail?

I ship packages Monday through Saturday, since there's no mail on Sunday.

Edible butterflies, wafer paper, supplies, and silicone molds can usually be shipped the first business day after the order is placed.

Paper flowers can be shipped two to three days after the order is placed.

Fondant and gumpaste orders vary since I have to make them and they need time to dry before they're ready to be shipped safely. I can generally get them in the mail three to five days after ordering, but it might take longer for larger orders. Feel free to convo me with questions about specific items.

Are VAT taxes and import fees included in the price?

Individual countries have different laws about import taxes and fees. the buyer is responsible for paying any fees collected when the package is picked up. I can't mark an item as a gift to avoid paying those fees, that's considered mail fraud and is illegal.

VAT taxes are charged by individual countries, and laws are different everywhere. If Etsy is required to collect VAT taxes they will be charged when the sale goes through.
