I realized I haven't posted about my cakes in a while. While I have been busy baking, I don't really take pictures anymore unless there are special decorations involved. Here are two of them.
AVENGERS-THEMED BIRTHDAY CAKE
I wish I could have done 3D figures. That would have been challenging and really cool. But as I was only given a week's notice, 2D was the only way to go. Lucky, I found a helpful tutorial here so the job became a lot easier. I did change a few bits here and there.
|See, I made the Hulk angry rather than cute and I gave Thor his long, blonde locks.|
The cake was for a joint father and son birthday party. The boy just turned 4 and barely had any idea who the Avengers were so I guess it was probably the dad who really wanted this cake...
There must be tons of Avengers-themed parties going around these days as these photos were viewed in my Flickr so many times in so short a time. People were most likely searching for ideas. Who wouldn't want a theme like this anyway?
ESSENDON BOMBERS-THEMED CAKE
Just for the information of those who aren't Aussie, the Essendon Bombers is one of the most popular among the 18 Australian Rules Football teams. We do live and breathe our footy over here, most especially in Victoria (where I am) so it's no surprise that someone would request a footy-themed cake. If you were a star-struck 6-year old, you would certainly want to be portrayed wearing your hero's jersey and number, wouldn't you?
Making people figures has never been one of my strengths but I was quite happy with this cake topper. And so was the boy's mom who was so excited when she saw the cake.
I'm looking forward to making a Christening and also a simple wedding cake soon. Can't wait.
