As you can see, the person is very giving. They contacted me because they wanted a special cake for a special 75th birthday. The birthday girl is part of the customer's knitting club. Not only does the she knit...she's spins her own yarn from her sheep!
So I incorporated all of that into this triple salted caramel cake. See the cute little sheep on the sides of the cake?!
Anyways....Blaze and the Monster Machine.... So as many of you know, I'm one of the few bakers who sticks to not breaking the law on copyright/licensing. That means cartoons, sports teams, superheros, logos, etc...are off limits. For the details on the laws and what I can do read this old blog post of mine.
This customer happily obliged to the laws and got toys to add to the cake. I made the cake with a race track, ramp, checkered flag base, and tire tread on the sides of the cake, and she provided the legally purchased (not replicated) toys to add to it. Pretty awesome for legally done cake right?! Below are a few more fun cakes I have made for this customer.
The cake design was also special because it represented each city the couple has lived in (the cupcakes represented their favorite football teams). It became even more special when I got to see customers (who I didn't know were even going to be at the wedding) eating and enjoying my cupcakes from states away. Below are pictures of the cake at my shop, everything packed up and ready for the trip, and the cake at the reception in St.Louis.
