This is a graduation/birthday cake for a wonderful girl. She is turning 18, traveling to Italy with her family, moving out of her home, going to college to study oceanography and has roots in Peru. I was lucky to bake for her and be trusted with the design of the cake. She asked me for a purple cake and a mermaid on it. I think the cake turned out as cute and sweet as she is. I am so proud of being using most of organic ingredients and sharing them with my beloved clients that are so open and kind to me and my designs. Thanks for the wonderful opportunity to bake for this family that is close to my heart.

Purple Graduation/Birthday Cake

What don’t we do for our little ones, huh? My daughter just turned 5 and she is obsessed with mermaids. I would say Ariel is her favorite Disney character and every toy to be fun has to have a tail. So I decided making a tail cake for her. I sketched a 2 tier cake but at the last minute she looked at me and said: “I think 3 tiers would be cuter mom”. Of course I did another tier but did not know how much work I got myself into it. I cut 500 scales in 4 different colors. It took me 4 to 5 hours just to cover all the prepared fondant cakes with the scales! Yes it is lots of love for my little one.  The next day when she woke up she had her jaw dropping and gave me the biggest hug ever. Her words to me paid off the very hard and tedious “gluing” of scales for all those endless hours. This cake was one of my very favorite cakes I have ever made. Please don’t get me wrong I love them all but this one holds a special place in my heart just because I made it for my “mermaid” princess that I love so very much!!! She deserves it, doesn’t she?Mermaid Tale Cake
