I love it when a client knows exactly what they want, especially when it’s something that I’ve never done before! But a mother bringing in a sketch of a cake, that her 12 year old daughter drew, for me to make a reality, now that’s a dream-come-true! Especially if the cake is a totally rad 80′s vibe themed cake that looks adorable!
Here’s the sketch of the cake!
Caitlin (that’s the birthday girl ) drew this in class one day when she was bored. She said it was her dream, 13th birthday cake. She kept the sketch. Her mom had to sneak it out of her room so I could see it. (Who says nothing good comes from daydreaming in class?! )
When it came time to pick up the cake, mom brought Caitlin along to surprise her. As Caitlin was jumping up and down, squealing over her cake, she stopped, looked at her mom in confusion, and asked, “Then, why did we just buy a cake from Walmart?” That’s right, Caitlin’s mom bought a decoy cake. Now that’s commitment!
This was one of my absolute favorite cakes to make. I felt so privileged to be included in the surprise. Oh and I told Caitlin to come see me in 3 years, because I could put her talent to good use!!!
