Lara's Christening

Saturday, October 2, 2010

Paula contacted me about making a christening cake for little Lara. Once I told her I was available for that date she sent me through a photo of the design she wanted, I laughed so hard when I opened the attachment.

It was a design of one of my bestest cake mates Amanda from Cake Delish! I quickly sent her a email asking for permission to copy her design and the love happily granted it!

When I started work on this cake I was a little apprehensive, Amanda is so talented and I wanted to do her design justice. Once I got into the groove I had heaps of fun decorating this one I changed a few little things but overall it's Amanda's design.

I am extremely proud of this cake, I absolutely adore it and was a little sad to deliver it to the client. This "big" cake business is hard work but so rewarding.

Oh and it's raining cats and dogs here at the moment and the humidity is horrendous which equals a decorators nightmare. Once your beautiful cake comes out of the air-conditioning it becomes sticky and tacky but unfortunately there is nothing that cake be done about it, it's all part of living in the tropics!

Happy Caking,
