Greetings, Thank you for taking the time to read my first ever blog entry! I was faced with a real creative cake challenge and decided that it was a good enough story to start my blog with.
So here goes . . . I was asked by a customer to design a cake that incorporated all of his daughters favourite things: Hadedas, hair, butterflies, cats, hearts, teletubbies, labels & bunnies.
He gave lots of notice - which to me was just more time to stress and procrastinate. Then it came to the last couple of days before collection, I had no time left to stress or procrastinate, i HAD to do it!!
So i started with the Hadeda I didn't have a mold (or a clue really) so had to do this one out my head. It turned out quiet well!

Once the bird was done I moved onto the teletubbies, the kitties, the bunnies, the hearts and the butterflies. they all looked really cute - the kitties looked real :)

So I had all the little bits and pieces now except the hair and the labels. Oh yay. . . more time to procrastinate! so i sat back had a much needed cappuccino and it worked like a charm, because - the light bulb went on!! And the whole cake fell into place :) I did a little girl with LONG hair, playing with the kitties, and decided to make the labels out of rice paper! DONE and sorted.
What seemed like a very strange cake turned out to be quiet cute, it was a little garden scene with all the creatures around, with the labels on the 4 sides of the cake.

I really enjoyed the challenge of this cake and look forward to more :) In the mean time I have to finish sorting out my craft area and finish my daughters birthday present, her birthday WAS on the 14th June!!
Till next time keep it creative!
