My lovely client - the very talented Lori of Lajari provided me with simple brief... create a gorgeous cake for her little princess' first birthday cake. Oh and it helped that she even sketched the cake she wanted made!!!.
I love working with creative people, its so refreshing when a client knows exactly what they want and enjoys the designing process as much as I do.
Lori is a graphic artist, so the pressure was on to create something that would meet up to her standards. I had the pleasure of creating her daughter's 3rd birthday cake a little while back, so she was aware of what I am capable of creating, still it was a little daunting, to have to replicate a 2D sketch.
But those that know me, know I love a challenge, so I was very excited to get started!
The inspiration for the design came of course from the gorgeous invitations she created. Her daughter loves jumping castles and so it was fitting that we include a fun and quirky version of a "princess castle" for a little girl who is not really into all things princess, but is her mum and daddy's princess!!
The jumping castle adorned this extended 8 inch marble mud cake. An edible image was printed to replicate the name plaque Lori created and I love how the grey breaks up the girly colours of the cake.
Thanks for looking xx
