All too often, adults don’t celebrate their birthdays with cake. This is a big problem (at least if you ask us)! But when we adults do celebrate, we celebrate in a big way! 30th, 40th, and 50th birthdays are huge!
We recently sat down with Brenda to design her own 50th birthday cake. She hadn’t had a birthday party in…well, a loooooooong time…so she fully sketched out her cake before we even met to design it!
She wanted fun, funky, colorful, and sparkly! And here’s what she got:
Last week, we got a cake order we were really excited about! We LOVE to make carved cakes so when Stacey called to order a 3-D roller skate cake for her daughter’s birthday, we were jumping for joy!
Ava had seen our Pink Roller Skate Cake and wanted one for herself – with a few adjustments, of course.
Here’s a cake I decorated while still working up at Ms Debbie’s Sugar Art earlier this year. And it was actually delivered to Clearwater Beach!
The cake was hand-carved, covered in fondant, and then airbrushed to add the color and detail typical of a Redfish.
Last week, we created a cake for a hair stylist. The customer brought in a picture of the cake and asked for an exact replica. No problem!
We carved the blow dryer out of a chunk of cake and covered it with red fondant. Then we used black airbrush color to add dimension and shadowing to the blow dryer. And, finally, we added the stripes, personalized “B”, and the power cord.
And all the accessories around the hair dryer were made of gum paste by yours truly.
That reminds me, I’m due for a hair cut! *wink*
The Super Bowl is this Sunday! Are you excited?! I’m not…not about the football part at least. I’m more excited that all my shows will be starting up again – Survivor, Grey’s Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, etc.
But here is a football groom’s cake I did a couple of weeks ago. I thought I’d post it in honor of the upcoming super bowl.
This weekend, the very talented lady behind Photography by Lela got married! Shortly after I began working with Debbie, she asked me to do her wedding cake. Of course, I referred her to Debbie so she requested that I be her decorator!
Her fiance just LOVES his television (sounds familiar…) so her groom’s cake was a giant TV remote control. She sent us a photo of his remote so we could create a sugar replica!
This baby was at least 18 inches long!
The cake was hand-carved and covered in black fondant. I took great care in cutting out all the fondant buttons. This really appealed to my Type A personality…straight lines, perfectly round circles….*sigh*…right up my alley.
The toughest part was writing those tiny words. I used a tip 1 with royal icing, and I felt like the words should have been smaller still!
