If you want to know what happens when giraffes and squirrels are given spaghetti, donuts given to foxes, and rainbow cakes given to lions, you will enjoy these funny little creatures that have gone wild in Rocco’s party!
Styled by the super duper nice Kaye Garcia, this party was such a beautiful oxymoron of party animals in a chic setting of browns, greens and whites.
Whoa, that’s a lot of photos. Anyway, we had so much fun making up the characters of these cheeky animals, and we were so blessed with Rocco’s mom, Debbie, who just let our imagination run wild for Rocco’s cake! Thanks again Debbie and Kaye! Loved, LOVED working with you and your awesome party theme 😀
Let me start by being frank. The next few cakes you will see will probably have a tree on it. It’s been something I’ve been so fondly practicing, and by for some reason, I’ve been blessed by cakes wherein I can incorporate them! Haha.
So here’s a Vintage Winnie the Pooh inspired cake set that I did. I personally don’t like doing character cakes because it somewhat limits the imagination, and though we get to put our own twists in the characters, it’s easier to get disappointed. But not this cake! When we first received this inquiry, I was a bit worried because I knew I had to stray from the usual shapes, but was excited because the colour palette was beautiful, don’t you agree?
One of the most difficult things to do when doing characters is making them come alive.
Piglet and Winnie the Pooh
And fortunately, I found an old Winnie the Pooh poetry book in Booksale which I already put in our decorating studio mini library. It had what my cake needed, but what I realised though, Tigger wasn’t in it! So I had to research and find a way to put him there simply because my client requested for it! I researched for the vintage Tigger, but saw that he wasn’t cute enough, hehe, so I just recreated a more modern one hoping it wouldn’t stand out too much!
So anyway, the cake design, we simply cascaded to the cookies and cupcakes 😀 Amazing what a couple of flowers can do for a cupcake!
So that’s it for this week! Next week, I’ll probably post another cake with a tree, inspired by a nursery rhyme!! Yay 😀
Can’t believe I forgot to post something last Friday, so here’s something to catch up to what I missed 😀
This chic mermaid-inspired set was again for Dreamscapes by Jac Lee Hao! I really loved how bolder colours were used instead of pastel colours usually requested for little girls. 😀
Diana, my client, requested the sea urchin to be on the cake, and since the theme is still mermaid-inspired, we did scales for the bottom tier 🙂
And what would be under the sea be without the colourful starfishies slowly crawling all over the sand?
And perhaps mermaid tails peeping above the water? 🙂
No, “Pat” is not the bunny’s name!
I was wondering why the title didn’t capitalise the letter “P”. Turns out, they’re not obliged to! This little book has an actual bunny packaged with it, and yes, you pat it. Haha.
It also has an app that inspired these cupcakes ❤
I actually tried getting a hold of this book, but it always seemed to be out of stock! 😦 But this theme really made for a wonderful cake theme for a baptism! If you’re interested what “pat the bunny” is all about, here’s a link to its Amazon listing:
