Barbie makeup bag

I was asked to do a surprise birthday cake for a 10 year old girl. The team of the party was barbie but I didn't want to do
the popular barbie doll cakeso.  I searched for inspiration on the internet and found a beautiful makeup bag for kids and knew immediately that it was a winner .
Here is the inspiration :

And here is how I interpreted it in cake:

Catching up!

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.

Thanks for sticking :)

Winter in Ghana!

A bride approached with a design of a winter wedding cake and I thought well why not?  Granted we do not have winter in Ghana but this is a beautiful cake so let's do it :)! Here is the outcome :)

Gold and white wedding cake

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.

Chandelier wedding cake

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.

A million dots wedding cake

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 :)!
