When Lauren Conrad entrusts you with the baking of her wedding cake, I would say that’s pretty clear and convincing evidence that you’re a rockstar. After all, LC knows how to pick ‘em and judging by her wedding album, we know she has great taste – in this case, literally! Lauren Lowstan, the lovely and talented baker behind A Sweet Savory, has been a part of many baking tutorials on laurenconrad.com from ombre cakes to the most beautiful watercolor meringues and yes, Mrs. Tell’s wedding cake. And today, she is giving us a peek into her sweet life and her plans to keep it that way.
