I know I have said before that I like when clients give me creative freedom with my cakes… well, I have discovered that there is such a thing as too much creative freedom. Last week a super talented photographer friend of mine asked ‘do you have time to make me and my friend a birthday cake?’
‘Yes, what kind of cake would you like?’ I asked.
‘Just something simple. Surprise me’
??? Where was I supposed to start? What flavour? What design? hmmm, my mind was racing everywhere thinking about all the possibilities!
After a few more questions, he became a little more specific, ‘as long as there is no green or brown…. and pink’. He took away some of my favourite colours to work with – green and pink 🙁
So finally I decided to do something I’ve been thinking of for awhile now… a cupcake stack cake. I supposed this is not really ‘simple’ like he wanted but he did say to surprise him. I thought for ages about the colours for the cake.
I know there are a lot more colours out there other than green, pink and brown, but now that I’ve been told I can’t use them, I wanted to so badly! 😛 Plus, I also had to find colours that would suit both a male and female (he was sharing his birthday with a female friend)… so finally I decided on primary colours… red, yellow and blue, which ended up working out well 🙂
And on to something totally unrelated… I just wanted to give you all a sneak peek of what I have been doing during the last couple of weeks…
I can’t write about the details yet and am only able to post 1 or 2 photos but I loved the photos so much I had to share 🙂 These were taken by Nick (above mentioned talented photographer friend 🙂 ) with his super cool camera.
