Beauty in Imperfection: Creating Unique, Artistic and Intentional Edible Masterpieces

I look for beauty in imperfection and embrace it.

Formally trained in the graphic, design and fine arts, my work is wholly inspired by the Japanese philosophy of “wabi-sabi” on the acceptance of transience and imperfection—appreciating that beauty is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete” in nature. It is a marriage of my love for the fine arts, baking and Earth’s beauty by designing from a ‘blank canvas’ to a finished bespoke cake —with a touch of inspiration from nature, old-world structures and the arts.

Every couple I’ve come across is different, thus each cake truly is a collaborative effort between my clients. When I take this into consideration, I find that each cake project paints a different story every time, and rarely do I repeat a design.

Love Notes

“Jehonna is clearly an artist! She worked with our time frame, our creative requests, and made the entire wedding cake process fast and actually fun! My favorite part was the digital sketch she emailed before we finalized the order. She also introduced me to Swiss meringue buttercream frosting, for which I will be forever grateful! Did we wait for our first anniversary to break out the rest of cake from the freezer? No way, we only made it one month. I’m happily a repeat customer!”

– Emeline

“Literally the most creative and artistic cake artist I have ever worked with! I am obsessed with her work and attention to detail. She did a 3-tiered square copper cake for an event that I hosted and I couldn’t be more amazed by her talent and skill.”

– Ashley

“Jehonna is a true artist both with taste and texture. She was absolutely wonderful to work with. I had a week to get a wedding cake and she calmly made the process of ordering easy and fun. My son and his fiancé chose the coconut with lilikoi and I have never had a better cake in my life and I love cake. The passion fruit center was a gentle, perfect burst of flavor. The cake was incredibly moist. To top it off, her buttercream was light, not too sweet and melted in my mouth. If you are a food person, this cake was not just a treat but an adventure. It was beautiful, on time, very professional, came with wonderful cutting directions, I can not rave about Jehonna enough. Thank you Maile Cake Design!”
