Last weekend, I was hired by my coworker/friend to bake for her cousin's boyfriend's birthday.
*** Side note ***
This friend (AKA Misha) is the BOMB!!!
She's had my back since day one... always helping to promote & grown my caking business.
I just wanted to take the time out to say... Thank you!!!
I really, truly appreciate it :)
Okay... now back to the cake (LOL). Misha's cousin wanted a cake that highlighted her boyfriend Oneale's talents and interests... she wanted it to be "a reflection of him"...
- he's very creative/artsy... likes to draw, paint, take pictures, etc...
- favorite color is purple
- likes soccer
- and he's Jamaican so she wanted that represented somehow
After our "consult", I was ready to go.
The creative wheels were turning (LOL). I was super excited about this cake and couldn't wait to get started.
Here's my initial sketch...
She wanted the biggest cake (bottom tier) to be Funfetti so... an idea struck [Ding, Ding... that was the sound effect I heard in my head... LOL]. Why not make the colors in the cake green, yellow, and black (like the Jamaican flag)?!?!? So... Here's a pic of the inside of the cake...
It looked GREAT!!!
I was super excited about that "personal" touch :)
Here are some pics of the final product...
The top tier was carved into a "Pacman" shape to resemble a painter's palette that featured vibrant colors and a paint brush.
I wanted it to look like the brush was used to "paint" his name on the side of the cake :)
on the other side of the cake was a camera sitting on a Jamaican flag.
*** side note ***
my hubby saw this "camera" sitting on my kitchen table and thought it was real.
I was so happy to hear that I had "tricked him" b/c he's my biggest critic (LOL).
And the final touch was a soccer ball and net.
I was really happy with the way the cake turned out... It was MUCH better than I had in visioned.
I hope the birthday boy liked it :)
