June has been one big amazing blur of cakes! One of those months where we're constantly looking at the calendar trying to remember what date it is. If the dates weren't defined by the cakes we have, we might never know what day it is! According to our June calendar and the client's order, the Batman cake above was made for a birthday party on Monday, just four days ago. It feels like much more time has passed than four days.
This sculpted Batman Dark Knight cake was made for a man celebrating his 21st birthday. His parents ordered the cake as a surprise for their son, who loves Batman, superheroes and comic books around the same time they ordered a Harry Potter themed cake for their daughter. Rick chose to model his Batman cake after the comic book rather than movie character, going more old school than the Hollywood movie version. Rick also happens to be a huge fan of Batman and comic books and was excited to make this cake for their son. As part of the birthday surprise, his parents brought the birthday boy into our studio to pick up his cake. He knew he was getting a cake but probably in his wildest dreams never thought he'd be picking up a Batman cake. He looked extremely happy and probably thought at that moment, his parents were the coolest people on earth!
Aloha, 'til next time!
