Every Cake Tells A Story....

One of the best things about creating cakes is being able to add something really personal that the recipient will love. The cake I delivered yesterday did this more than any cake I've ever made.

I had a call from G, a new customer, back in September and we discussed her ideas to create a cake for her husband's 40th birthday. The idea really was to capture all of the things Mike loves, from their children, to his hobbies and his job.

I came up with 3 design ideas for G to choose from and the design below was the outcome. I met G and was given lots of design inspiration, including photos of their children, his training shoes, his rugby shirt and of course his (apparently famous!) man-bag. I was able to use these to make sure the cake represented everything he loves as much as possible.

As there were so many elements I've been working on this cake for some time, it really was lovely to finally see it come together this weekend. I delivered the cake yesterday, ready for Mike's party that evening. I hope it was a great surprise as Mike had no idea!

I keep referring to this as a life story cake and I'd love to hear what other people would have to have on their life story cake. Mine would have lots of cake related things of course!
