After Candy celebrated her 30th Birthday with her cute Baby Animal Cupcakes, it was with great excitement that her mom, Michelle sent me an email asking me to do a Preggy Lady Cake Topper and cupcakes for her Stork Party.
Her opening lines of her email read: “
My daughter Candice’s stork party date is set….20th August. Yay!!!! So obviously had to drop the best in the bizz a note for a cake topper and 12 of your delicious cupcakes.
We have chosen a theme, it is flowers…flowers….flowers, ‘girlie girlie’ and baby rocking horses, baby teddy’s and baby bunnies….all the toys Candy loved as a baby!!! Candy and her hubby have opted not to find out the baby’s gender so please can you mix muted soft baby colours, white, pale pink, pale blue, silver, tan/sand and washed green.”
After reading Michelle’s email request and receiving pictures of Candy and inspiration for the cupcake toppers, I couldn’t resist to make this Cake Topper as perfectly as I could for this family occasion. My petite sugar Candy started off with the most beautiful preggy bump and warm smile and I can’t resist showing you her here below before she was decently clad in her pretty pink dress and funky boots. Her tiny sugar teddies and rabbits are looking on in wonder at this miracle of sugar nature as they wait for their cupcakes.
I hope when I reach this exciting chapter of my life with my own daughter, that I will be just as excited to celebrate a new grandchild in my family. Part of Michelle’s excitement was her inspiration picture of a preggy lady and a pram and as the pram could not be conjured up in my own sugar brain, I turned to my sugar guru friend and teacher Pat, of CakesbyPat and asked her to make the pram for this Cake Topper. Well Pat you made Michelle’s day as she was delighted that the pram was included in the topper!
In fact Michelle cried tears of delight as she saw the topper and that just has to be the best reward for any cake decorator! Clients like you Michelle just inspire me. Here is Candy with her pram and her teddy, rabbit, rocking horse (childhood toys) ready for her new baby.
Finally it was the turn of the cute sugar paste teddies, rabbits, preggy bellies, prams and rocking horses to be added to their individual swirls of vanilla iced, passion fruit and white chocolate cupcakes. They could not wait to be part of such a fun celebration. White floral cupcake holders and Aragon Minikin flowers completed the flower part of the theme for the day. Thank you again Michelle for the thought and care that went into this order for Candy’s Stork Party.
