So, I have been seriously slacking on my blogging this week, but I hope everyone had a wonderful relaxing holiday weekend. I wanted to share with all of you a fun cake I made for someone having a milestone birthday.
Tom was turning sixty and was having a party to celebrate and wanted a fabulous cake as well. Tom had no idea what theme he wanted for the cake, but gave me some details about his life, and what he had accomplished thus far. I must say when someone has no idea what they want for the cake it can be very challenging coming up with a design to suit that person. for some reason the Game of Life came into my mind, so I decided to run with that for the theme. Tom gave me some important milestones in his life, and picked up a game board, and the cake was born.
I hand painted all of the scenes from the game directly onto the cake. Then I laid out the game tiles around the board adding all the details from Tom's life.
I think the spinner turned out great, and it actually spun!
I added some fun cards and saying from the real game as well.
In the end, I was really happy with how the cake came out, I think it was unique, and captured Tom's sixty year very well. I hope you enjoyed this cake! Stay tuned for next weekend because I am working on a cake with some beautiful sugar tiles!
