Wow it has been a really, long time since I updated! Shame on me! It's tough keeping up with all these social sites, I must admit :). So much has happened in this past half year. I have grown in skill and continue to grow and have met many wonderful people who have lifted me higher. I will just share a few of the cakes I have done to break the silence and make an effort to write more frequently.
Wow! It's been too long since I posted here :(. I have been putting together material though but has been very, very busy.
I made this cake this weekend and was pleasantly surprised by the outcome - beautiful! The bride initially wanted pearls but we had a few a challenges so settled for gold which was part of her colour scheme. I was initially skeptical and thought it would look gaudy but I was soo wrong! I love this cake and hope you do too.
In the evening of 9 March 2014 I received a call from a potential client wanting a wedding cake. It was past 5pm and I had company so was debating whether to go meet up with this client immediately (my cake shop is not too far from my house) or fix an appointment for a later date. Curiosity got the better part of me so I decided to meet with her that evening. This meeting proved to be a turning point in my cake career :)!. The request was for a 5 tiers upside down chandelier cake!!! My excitement knew no bounds, this was a first here in Ghana and also for me! :). That evening and the next few nights I could hardly sleep from anticipation of the wedding date and it remained so for some days till gradually it all settled in. I designed the cake stand and internal structure and supervised it's construction and come 26 July 2014, all our dreams came to fruition and everybody involved was satisfied. The cake was a HUGE hit as intended and the bridal party was full of praise for my work. Am greatly humbled and thankful to God Almighty for this breakthrough.
Oh my, I wish I knew what I had let myself into when I accepted to do this design for a client! Anyway, the cake turned out beautiful and tasty and everybody had good things to say about it so my client is happy, am happy, everybody is happy! That is why I make cakes :)!
