Work those abs!

A day at the gym.

Birthday girl gym instructor.

yums! managed to grab a few mouthfuls.

It’s not often you get really fun and quirky request. This next one was so interesting that I just had to say yes…… then sit and worry about how to get it done. The brief was to make a 21st birthday cake for a Gym Instructor, with perhaps a client flat out after a work out. Considering I am such a procrastinator when it comes to exercise, I had never seen the insides of so many gyms before when doing my research. Decided to do a treadmill with bearded client crashing out during his session. For some comic relief, added a carrot and stick…I mean burger and stick to motivate him.

Made this cake for a SIA  graduating class.

A vintage suitcase plastered with travel stickers for the well-heeled traveller and of course the Globe with flowerpaste continents and oceans.

Travel stickers are made from fondant and totally edible.

A few weeks ago we celebrated my grandmother’s  (Por Por) 89th birthday. I spent a long time working on the design of the cake because Por Por is such an exceptional woman who has faced numerous challenges throughout her life.  All of which she had overcome with much grace, patience and tenacity. It was with all these in mind that I set upon creating her birthday cake. I wanted it to be really special for her, to let her know how much she is loved and how special she is to all of us in the family.

This was my biggest project, a 3 tier cake with matching mini cakes and cupcakes.
