this collection shows the capricious side of into the woods--cake design concepts are inspired by nature, pop-culture, textiles, art, mythology and whatever else happens to delight us at the moment
The Laura Blue blueberry pie was inspired by a client. After attending an Into the Woods cake tasting a young woman approached us and asked if we would do a blueberry pie for her boyfriend's birthday (who we now refer to affectionately as Mr. Blue).
After trying to convince her that our specialty was cakes, she convinced us to bake her a pie for his birthday because, "Every year I get him a Blueberry pie for his birthday." It didn't hurt that she sports a pair of blue eyes as large as the moon.
In keeping with the Into the Woods esthetic, the Laura Blue uses thyme-infused roasted blueberries tucked into a shortbread polenta crust.
