I had one of the best cake consultations... with a (then) 9 year old (and her Mom, of course). Emma was planning on partying it up for her 10th birthday (I remember hitting the double digits... thought it was a very cool thing) and her Mom decided she just didn't want to pull another all-nighter, as she had the previous year, making a cake... so they found me! I can only think of one word to describe Emma's personality: FUN. I knew we were totally going to click when she told me one of her favourite colors is black. She chose a turquoise/black/silver color scheme with a deep purple accent. Fun and whimsical. The original design included a number 10 and stars as the topper but her Mom emailed afterwards asking if we could add their new puppy, Maui, in a dog carrier. Love the element of surprise. We also added 24 fondant covered cupcakes to match.
