Orlando goes all out to create a cake that makes her dream come true. She explains her vision and draws a sketch for him to work from (her fathers daughter). Then, a week before the party Orlando begins to model and mold chocolate, carve cake and lay and paint fondant. The final creation is a work of art. When guests arrive they aren’t even aware that the creation displayed is a 100% edible. The cake brings joy to everyone especially our daughter. Mission Accomplished!
The party was a hit! 30 girls (four lucky boys peppered in the mix), entertained by busy activities of coloring chef hats, cake boxes and aprons. But, the final activity proved to be the most engaging; decorating their own mini cakes. Creative juices were flowing! Buttercream and sprinkles everywhere each child had a vision of what they wanted to achieve and so they did. With fondant butterflies and flowers in hand, there was no limit to what could be designed. Both Orlando and I saw potential Cake Artists in them all.
Before the party began our daughter created a sign that said “Happy Baking” and this party proved that cake is more than a sweet treat to eat, it is filled with possibility and most importantly makes people happy!
