Nicole's Giant Cupcake
Nicole's giant sculpted cupcake wasn't the first one we've made, but the first one that had been ordered for the purpose of a child's photo shoot. When this adorable little girl's parents called us to place the order, we were told that they wanted the cake to be used as a prop in a photo shoot they had arranged for their daughter. I asked "don't you want to eat it?" The response was of course they wanted to eat it but they also wanted their daughter to be able to interact with the cupcake as much as possible because they thought that would make for really cute photos. When they saw our flavors and chose the super yummy Banana Blueberry Mascarpone, they were determined to find a way to remove a slice for their daughter to play with in front of the camera, and not compromise the look of the cake or destroy it in such a way that they wouldn't be able to eat it. Rick designed the sculpted cupcake in the colors of the dress Nicole had planned to wear for her birthday shoot, and wanted it to be striking piece with lots of contrast which we thought would photograph well. Our client sent us photos of their daughter taken at the shoot, which was terribly cute!
Aloha, 'til next time!
