Let Them Eat Zombie Cake

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One professional cakemaker doesn’t cry when her elaborate creations are cut into – she eats them.

Mary Maher co-runs CakeGirls in Chicago, a custom cakery that specializes in personalized cakes that sometimes take weeks to make.

Some of their weirder creations have included a wedding cake of a bulldog wearing a Cubs jersey and a bloody zombie brain cake for an anniversary.

Though the cakes are a lot of work, Maher has never shed a tear when one of her masterpieces is sliced before her eyes.

In fact, she’s the first to line up for a piece and encourages hesitant onlookers to do the same.

She enjoys watching people chow down and knew she was meant for this gig the day she made her “first buttercream rose.”

Maher says it all started with a kid and a dream – and an Easy-Bake Oven she shared with her sister.

CakeGirls is featured in WeTV’s new reality show, Amazing Wedding Cakes, premiering this Sunday (Jun. 7).
