Robin Martin and her crew at Gateaux know a little something about pattern. She’s been creating some of the Twin Cities’ finest wedding cakes for years. Ever the overachiever, Martin wanted to do more, so she added invitation design to her dossier of services. These bright and mod creations use texture for a completely fresh look.
