Sometimes people ask Natalie Madison if she is a taxidermist, Cheree Franco writes in Tuesday's Style section.
Actually, Madison is something akin to a sculptor. According to her Facebook page, she offers “artistic services.” Some of her tools are conventional, such as chisels and blades. Some are industrial, such as saws, drills and a blowtorch. But most are edible, like royal icing, crisped rice and gum-paste.
That’s because, in January or April, depending on if you count from when she hung a sign or when she quit designing clothes for Dillard’s, she opened Natalie Madison’s Artisan Cakes.
Marvel at the work of cake artist Madison who specializes in aquatic life and even does gore (there’s been a re-creation of the original Jaws poster and a Steel Magnolias-inspired bleeding armadillo) in Tuesday's Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
