A pixie turns 9
This week was full of birthdays for some men I know. The first cake below is for my oldest pixie who turned 9. I get it. Nine isn't anywhere close to manhood. I love him but he is starting to smell and eat me out of house and home. it's just around the corner.
My son has become fascinated with the Wings of Fire book series so he asked for an ice wing dragon for his cake. I made sure he was on hand for all the technical questions like talon color, length of spikes, and more.
The next two cakes happen to be for two dads I know who both turned 40 on the same day. How cool is that? One lives and breathes anything related to Philadelphia Eagles and the other dad loves to party.
Sketches Become Reality
I really enjoy sketching out a client's idea and then seeing it come to life. This weekend I got to work on a Top Wings cake for a little guy named Walker. The mom said she just wasn't finding anything that spoke to her so we came up with a sketch to feature his favorite character from the show.
The mom asked for a little more greenery along the edges. I also changed Swift's final pose a little and created him in my trusty food coloring and Vodka painting technique. And here is the final result!
This weekend was a trip! A trip to the pediatric ER for the smallest Pixie and some fun cakes got worked in somehow. Both cakes I did were Disney themed this weekend.
First cake up came before the hospital trip and featured a baby Stitch for a baby shower!
The second cake was super fun to work on. The dad of the birthday boy and I worked together to create the design for the cake. Initially, he wanted the plane crashing on the side but I convinced him to have it crash into the top. The birthday party was outside. in. August. I didn't think it would end well. We had the nephews up front and the main bad guy on the back too! All the images were created with edible ink markers, food coloring, and vodka.
