It's one thing to make a birthday cake with pigs, bears, sheep and dogs, and quite another to have the shapes of those characters and their environment be made out of words. When we got the order for the PBS Kids "WordWorld" cake, we knew it was going to be difficult because each character's body contains the name of their species. The pig character has the letters "PIG" forming the shape of his body, the bear has the words "BEAR" and so forth. On top of the cake, Rick put the red barn, which from far away looked like a barn, and up close spelled the word "BARN." Making a multi-tiered cake with the different characters set in a scene was a time consuming design, and to have it on the same weekend as the Incredible Hulk and other difficult cakes was certainly challenging. The WordWorld Cake was totally adorable, and the presence of the word factor added that level of geekiness that made it even more endearing. Our client was blown away by the cake and we were really happy with it too.
Aloha, 'til next time!
