Miri Nadler is a self-taught cake artist and owner of 10 Bloom Cakes Bakery in Mathews, North Carolina. Her flowered masterpieces are hand painted with a palette knife and her choice of icing is creamy buttercream instead of the usual hard sugar fondant impossible to eat. Inspired by the Art Décor era and mid-century design, her magnificent next level cakes are in the theme of beautiful flowers and are inspired by a bride’s floral bouquet. Some of her favorite blooms are peonies, dahlias, proteas, tulips, hydrangeas, orchids and magnolias.
