Ross celebrated his 21st Birthday earlier this year and Tanya asked me to make a cake for him that would depict all his interests and passions. For as long as I have known Ross, he has always had a deep love for and interest in animals and he has a passion for the wild and for his photography of wild animals. The Backpack Cake was the easiest way to encorporate all these interests, the backpack of course represents every young man’s dream to travel. This backpack is inspired by one of Grace Stevens‘ cakes in her book, Celebration Cakes.
Tucked neatly into the front pocket are a sugar paste zebra and lion, really keen to be studied and photographed. The zebra nonchalantly peers out from a side pocket. Ross has a Nikon camera and I am sure that he will take many wonderful pictures as he sets out on his adventures. Wishing you all the best Ross as you embark on the next chapter of your life!
