More cake

Since I'm not doing anything creative at home I'll have to show you my creativeness at work. Not sure if creativeness is a word or not but my spell check doesn't seem to have a problem with it.

Any way, I had two cake orders to do at work yesterday. The first one asked for palm trees on either side in tan and mint green. They wanted a white border with pastel accents. I asked her what she meant by accents and she said like stringy color hanging over the border. This is what I made. The pink and green along the border are very light but there is actually color in there.



The second cake they wanted a light purple border with pink, purple and blue flowers. Also a unicorn if I could do one. At first I thought, no, I can't do a unicorn. Then I remembered all the cut files I've seen for cricut that are unicorns and I did the cake to look like that. This is what I ended up with.


It was a guy who picked this one up and I said I hoped it was ok. He's like it's for a 3 year old whatever is fine. Then when he looked at it he said oh that's beautiful.

They are both BEAUTIFUL!!! I love the pastel beachy look of the palm trees. And the unicorn is fantastic. It is not too disney-ish, meaning it could be for an adult as well! You are creative, but also talented! I love seeing your cakes!!!

the one for the 3 year old could not be more perfect.. and I LOVE the first one. those stringy thingy's on the side are prettier than roses or shells. the palm trees are wonderful. I have tried to figure out how to stop the gmail thing and can't

Those came out really nice. You are very good at what you do!

Grace said...

Oh My! I wonder that anyone actually cuts into the cakes - too pretty to eat!

Wow---I love them both --but the first one is my favorite.... I love the 'stringy' borders.... NEAT..... You are just so talented... Have you ever thought about making/selling your cakes from home (when you are not working)???? I have a friend in North Carolina --who works at a market of some kind --but also makes and sells cakes from her home year-round... She's got a great following --and they keep her busy... It might mean more money coming in for you...

Hugs,
Betsy

Thanks. I had fun doing both of them

Well I know they do cut into them because I got a complaint on one I did the other day. I made it all chocolate and she claimed she ordered half yellow half chocolate. I wish I would have saved the order form so I knew if I screwed up or she didn't order what she thought.

No, never thought about doing cakes out of my home. I never had an interest in doing it outside of work
