Over the years I have had the pleasure of casually meeting Ms. Weinstock at various industry events, cocktail parties etc. She is a petite woman with a big presence. Not because she is boisterous or ostentatious. Not because she always has her signature big, black, round glasses on. But because she is a trailblazing visionary who loves what she does with a passion and saw wedding cakes not merely as flour and frosting but as works of art. She is woman who works with a team of other creative visionaries to create edible works of art….not simply a cake. Each masterpiece lovingly reworked until it is just right. Sarah Merians, a NY photographer I have know for many years, recently had the pleasure of meeting with Sylvia for a cake tasting. This is how she presented the tasting to her. Ever the artist….with a true eye and “palette” for flavors.
