Like I said last week, here’s a nursery rhyme inspired cake! And yes, the baby is hanging on a tree ❤
When my client requested for a nursery rhyme cake, the first thing that came into my mind was a cow jumping over a moon. But then, she wanted specifically, Rock-a-bye, baby theme, and I LOVE that she said she wanted something for a baby girl, but not pink!
So there, no pink, but I tried to make it as girly as I possibly could. Well, I guess without pink, I had to focus on making it adorable 😀
And yes, I couldn’t stop at a baby on a cradle, so to add more life, I put these curious little critters to entertain the little baby! After all, it’s kinda boring when you’re hanging up on a tree.
So there 😀 This, I think stands as one of my favourites because it’s so simple ❤
Next week, I think we’ll rest from tree cakes. I’m still thinking of what to post, but I have a feeling, Imma choose something bippity boppity boo. 😀
’til next week!
I get a lot of Safari cake inquiries, AND I LOVE IT! 🙂
Obviously, I really love making animals. This is just another variation of our safari cake! I wanted to do something more extreme than the previous ones, so what the heck, I put a cheeky, vine-swinging monkey!
Hope you enjoy this as much I enjoyed making it 😀
It’s not a secret that our company is London-inspired. And I can’t hide how much I miss just walking around, being in a beautiful city, and sitting down in the park to enjoy a bit of sun (during the rare occasions it finally decides to come out). My last days in London were quite sentimental.
Big Ben at Sunset
Putney Bridge in the morning
I was alone most of the time, so I spent it just walking close to my flat (which was conveniently a 15-minute walk to the Tower Bridge and all those cheesy London landmarks).
Tower Bridge as I left it.
Two days before my flight home, it was almost autumn, but the sun was still fighting the bit of cold that was already creeping into the city. I sat down on a bench in front of the Tower of London, facing Tower Bridge and the Thames River and just looked at the city I knew I was going to leave my heart in until I could get it back. Until then, I’m going to have to make more (much more) cakes. (So please order more cakes! Haha)
For the meantime, here’s a hot air balloon cake, with the popular London skyline (minus the Shard because it’s hazardous to train drivers hehe).
Cheers and much love,
We’ve been in the business for quite some time. TRP, Inc. was established in 2012, but we’ve been baking or such a long time that I can’t really say when we took it seriously. Most of you wouldn’t know this, but we first branded our baked goods as Dulce Fantasia (we had an intense fascination with the Spanish language), but it was really more of a mishmash of ideas, the rainbow cake, and a business waiting to take form.
We’ve made pretty good friends from back then, and we’re so flattered that despite the change in name, a year between DF and TRP, our past clients still have us for their small and big celebrations. A few years ago, a client ordered a rainbow cake from us and wanted penguin toppers. A few weeks after, we were tagged on Facebook only to find out that they wanted the rainbow cake with penguins as their wedding cake!
Fast forward to a year later, we received another call from her because she wanted a rainbow cake for the Christening of her first baby!
Time really flies. And when you’re taking it one cake at a time, you don’t really see it pass by so quickly. But because of all the years we’ve been baking and making pretty things, new borns and countless celebrations, we’ve already started counting years by cakes! So to all friends of TRP, thank you soooooo much for inspiring us to make more of the good stuff!
Special thanks to the Camacho family for allowing us to be part of your life stories! ❤
Much, much love,
