Capturing Life with Birthday Cake

How to capture someone's life in Birthday Cake? Recently I was working with a well-known client to create unique birthday cake capturing her husband's life. We started with exploring of what he likes and all the 'things' that matter to him. The bottom of the three-tiered cake was constructed from carved vanilla sponge cake in the shape of books that has inspired him. Photos from childhood memories were popping up as bookmarks. The Middle tier is about family and personal life, the idea came from a pop-up book showing pictures of family member and all the things that personal to him. The top tier represents professional life, his love for travel and gadgets and world that he has influenced in. We have created something more than just celebration cake. It is a centrepiece that truly unique that captured someone's life. Hope this post would inspire you or at least give you some ideas to tell story with cakes, let’s get baking!
