A Castro Valley woman's cakes aren't just winning contests, they're also winning the hearts of celebrity comedians.
Misti Short, a Castro Valley local, had recently made cakes for George Lopez and Anjelah Johnson.
The armature cake decorator started decorating cakes about two years ago, but you wouldn't think that by the looks of them or the awards she's been racking up.
Back in April, in the Contra Costa Cake and Sugar Art Society's (CCCSAS) Sixth Annual Show Competition.
In June, she entered the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano's second annual Cupcake War at the Admiral’s Garden fundraising event on Mare Island. There, she competed against several business owners and ended up winning with her moist vanilla cake and pink lemonade cream filling.
Most recently, Short had entered five cakes at the Alameda County Fair. Two of them are for display only and three were entered into the competition. She won first and second place for the adult decorated cake division and second place for the wedding cake division.
"I think it's about time to become an official business, eh?" Short told Castro Valley Patch.
