Bold and Bright for a Big Birthday

A few weeks ago I ran into a past student of mine and while catching up she asked for some info on One More Slice Cake Designs. A couple days later she was emailing me looking for a crazy 50th birthday cake for her mom, Karen.

She wanted neon orange, accented with purple. “As bright as you can get it” is what she said to me! Also, her mom LOVES polka dots and stripes. So I grabbed a few inspirational pictures and sent them over. Now this colour combo just so happens to be one of the hottest colour combo’s in the wedding world right now so there were some really great ideas out there like these:

Well, she came back to me and said her mom likes things wild and crazy, so don’t worry about have things so uniform and even. She gave me creative freedom and I went to town decorating.

This is what we came up with!

Isn’t it just so fun? I love the combo of Polka dots and stripes!

It was a french vanilla cake with vanilla butter cream icing. I coloured the butter cream orange for the bottom tier and purple for the top tier for an added surprise when they cut the cake!

I hope you had a fabulous day Karen, here’s to another 50!

A heads up for next week: I have a huge Christmas project to share with you next week! Stay tuned!

Lego Cake ~ A 5 yr old Birthday Cake!

This past weekend I had the privilege of making a Lego cake for a very special 5 year old, Charlie!

I always relish the idea of making kids cakes as I absolutely LOVE seeing their faces when they see their cake for the first time! What a great fun family, I loved spending the afternoon watching them love on their little big man!

Here’s a close up of the men hard at work on the fondant! (Yes I realize they are not real Lego men, but it’s all we had on hand!)Of course we needed some cupcakes to top it all off!

The cake table was quite popular!

Again, Happy Birthday Charlie!
