Once in a while I'll have a client tell me, "I totally trust your creative ability - do what you want." On this particular week, I had three clients give me full creative control. It went something like this: this is the occasion, this is my budget, these are the "must haves" for the cake - you do the creative part. They can be fun. Or they can be a nightmare if my creative vibes decide to go on an unannounced, unplanned vacation. Event: 50th wedding anniversary
Must haves: gold, the number 5o on the top
Gold was incorporate in the number 50, the banding around the base of each tier, and outlined in a few of the ruffle flowers with a color palette of white, ivory, and soft pink.
Event: son's 10th birthday
Must haves: this birthday boy was getting a new puppy so I was asked to incorporate this new puppy and their current dog
Using a picture that was sent for reference, I created "Oreo" and "Cookie" out of gumpaste (the duck is Oreo's favourite toy)... here they are chillaxing in front of their dog house.... it's a dog's life...
Event: sweet 16
Must haves: Glee theme/Glee Live show/VIP tickets
There's a another story to this one (which will be the next post). It didn't quite turn out the way I'd planned, but this was the final result.
All in all - a fun week! With a minor set back... watch for it in the next post!
