This week I got to work with fresh flowers on a cake. I love fresh flowers in vases around the house. I just had a "make your own bouquet" table at our neighborhood block party. But I have always been iffy about fresh flowers on cake. Sure...they are beautiful. But...still iffy. Whatever my personal opinion is, I think this cake for a 65th birthday party came out pretty great. How do you feel about fresh flowers on desserts??
This month I got to work on a Darth Maul cake. I have some experience with Darth Maul. A old boyfriend I had in college dressed as the Sith lord for Halloween one year. He had a swimmer's cap with fake horns, crazy contact lenses, and a face full of paint courtesy of my painting skills.
Mr. Birthday Boy Beckett here also has a BB8 cake seen in my gallery. Time will tell which side of the force he chooses.
I also got a request for a cosmic galaxy unicorn cake. That is definitely a head-scratcher but the mom was super amazing and sent along the birthday party invitation she created. Stars, planets, and rainbow hair make for an epic birthday cake if I do say so myself.
