Candy Cake, Wonka-Style!
February was a month of insanity, ending with a weekend to trump other weekends in terms of difficulty of designs and volume of orders. Working on less sleep than usual and doses of caffeine, we got through the February 28th-March 1st weekend of cakes, and we would be kicking back on our lanai celebrating right about now if it weren't almost time to leave for a wedding tonight. During this week, we will be revealing a number of these cakes made over the weekend and not one of them is simple. Case in point, this birthday cake took the candy theme and wonky to another level and really capitalized on what Rick has become known for, truly custom, artful and unpredictable designs. Putting the entire design into Rick's hands, our client gave us her colors and let his imagination run wild. You'll notice the butterflies on the cake because the birthday girl's theme was candy and butterflies. What good is a candy cake if you can't indulge in everything on it. All components on this cake were handcrafted and completely edible, and no butterflies were harmed in the making of this cake. The inside of this wonky candy cake was just as scrumptious on the inside as it was eye-catching on the exterior, with her chosen flavors of Peanut Butter Fudgey and Bananarama. Hopefully this whimsical FUN cake will bring an evening of sweet dreams to birthday girl Gia!
