Alana Jones-Mann is Brooklyn-based baker who specializes in combining actual candy with eye candy. She has her very own blog which showcases her considerable talents in baking. Alana describes herself as: ‘a self-taught baker, with an intense passion for crafting, designing, and styling’. She earns her living in New York as an event planner, and as such, meticulously plans everything down to the smallest detail. Alana believes that personal touches can make any occasion unforgettable, which is probably what led her to create a series of mouth-watering desserts featuring prickly cacti and other succulents. Daunting though the spines may be, I bet each of those cupcakes taste heavenly.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
