A week after researching Softball gloves for Megan’s Birthday, I was google spotting for images of GTR tyres for Mitchell’s birthday cake. This cake was quite a challenge for an artist who selects her new car because it is available in a gorgeous shade of passion red! As usual google never fails with a variety of images and with these and photos Irene sent of Mitchell’s car, I set to work on this Tyre Cake for Mitchell. Set on a grey stone look-a-like cake board, I was so excited when the cake started resembling a tyre with printed edible GTR logo and Mitchell’s name. Thanks Irene for this brilliant challenge for Mitch’s 30th Birthday and for trusting me to get it right!
Last weekend’s order meant taking leave from the part of my brain that is happy thinking about pretty colours, fairy figurines and girly goodies and entering the realm of creating a birthday celebration cake for a guy! Amy asked me to make a whisky barrel for her husband, Rick, who was celebrating his 30th birthday. The cake was a 2 layered vanilla and chocolate cake, carved into the shape of a barrel. I then covered the cake in strips of wood embossed sugar paste, painted the strips to resemble aged wood and added the black metal strips and wording to the barrel.
The plaque was designed by Rick’s brother in law, also Rick, and it was the perfect addition to create an elegant and realistic look to this cake. As always I love my cakes to be placed on a board that suits the theme and the grey embossed board here was perfect for the cake and the addition of the birthday message. Wishing you a brilliant 30th Birthday Rick and may there be many an occasion to charge your whisky glass!
Rick…. ” Thank you Lisa, such a sensational creation “
Amy….” Lisa, thank you so much! The cake was an absolute hit and it was so beautiful that we almost didn’t want to cut it up! You are so talented.”
Tracy…. “Once again, you outdid yourself Lisa! Thank you for the fabulous cake – it was much admired “
