What a pleasure it was to create this cake for Bo for her 21st. The photos Stephanie, her mom, sent to me showed a beautiful, poised and elegant young woman and it was fun to translate these characteristics into a sugar paste figurine for her 21st Cake. I had to create long eyelashes, silky brunette hair and a gorgeous curvaceous figure dressed in a sexy deep coral dress. Bo’s sister, Amy, also wanted me to add on pretty jewelry. It is all this love and understanding that my clients show for the person who is celebrating that make me want to create the perfect cake for them.
Stephanie and Amy’s idea was to have a Hat Box Cake with their beautiful Bo sitting on the box. As Bo was completing her course in BConsumer Science in Clothing and Retail Management, I thought it would be great to add details reflecting her passions. The cake board I covered in embossed sugar paste with movement on the board to reflect fabric. I added my favourite Crystal Candy Lace I made using Crystal Candy Midnight Garden Lace mat, which I dusted a soft gold. Gold and silver antique scissors, gold buttons and rolled ‘fabric’ coral roses, a coral rose and a name tag completed Bo’s Coral and Gold Hat Box Cake.
Not only was this cake delectable looking but inside revealed a chocolate cake, layered with raspberry buttercream and coated in chocolate ganache. On collecting the cake, Stephanie and Amy loved the cake and I was delighted that they had trusted me with their order.
Stephanie … ” Thank you Lisa for this beautiful cake, we loved it. “
