Chloe’s 1st Birthday January 9, 2012

Filed under: Little ones — serendipityyvonne @ 11:18 AM

The 1st cake of 2012. It’s been a busy 1st week of the new year, with the girls getting settled into the new academic year. My respite from all that” busyness” was creating the figurines for Chloe’s cake. Wanted to try out a new look, to make the figurines more adorable and cute. To me ,it is all in the eyes. The eyes truly make or break the overall look of the figurine. Anyway, pretty happy with how they turned out.

Worked with one of the loveliest couples, Vincent+ Sharon, easy-going and generous with their kind ,kind comments, I was on cloud nine the whole time I was working on this cake for their little one Chloe. It was a pleasure creating this cake.

After I created the first Russian Doll Cake ,I loved the look so much that I decided to do another one in a slightly different hue . Design around the sides are also different.

The inspiration for my next couple of cakes is the Russian Babushka Doll. My sister had one when we were kids and I loved to open them up till I got to the smallest one.

Here again I ‘ve moved away from figurine work towards a more design based on.

For this cake I wanted to try something new, to move away from figurine work towards more design based work. Created this cake for my friend of over 20 years. She loves white so I wanted to create an all white cake for her.
