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! :P 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.
