Katie, my fellow straw-stealer (don’t ask), recently commissioned a cake for her 21st birthday. She has been working this summer at the store where I share kitchen space, so we often spend hours chatting and laughing while I do my designing and sculpting. She keeps me from talking to inanimate gumpaste figurines, so I probably owe her what’s left of my sanity.
When we were discussing the concept for her cake she said that she didn’t care about any details except that the filling had to be white chocolate ganache. A fine choice. She later picked out the colours and design, so I suppose she did care about the cake after all.
When her cake was ready, I realized I had forgotten my camera. I hate when this happens because I really want to build up my gallery, but Katie happily promised to take pictures and send them to me. Today I got the most perfect pictures of what I think is one of my cutest cakes.
I decided to call this design Bubbles, and I think it is going to be a popular one. I’m going to try all sorts of colour combinations for Bubbles. Suggestions are always welcome.
