Polkadots got political this week, with the creation of a birthday cake ordered for Governor Rick Perry. It featured silhouettes of Texan icons such as the Capitol building, the state flag, pecan trees, windmill, cattle, and a big silver Rice Krispie Treat star on top. The background was meant to be reminiscent of the big Texas sky around dusk. Hopefully the Governor enjoyed his special cake!
We made two unique cakes of similar styles recently - a Gucci purse, and a Hello Kitty lunchbox. The purse had intricate logo and design detailings, with gold fondant-covered Rice Krispie Treat handles, straps, and "hardware". It almost looked real enough to pick up and sling over your shoulder!
While we're on the topic of uncommon shapes, we also carved a movie popcorn bucket cake recently. The outside of the bucket was white with vertical red fondant stripes, and the top was coated in black fondant sprinkled with toasted "popcorn" pieces. It also included a Rice Krispie Treat film reel birthday banner as a final touch. Don't forget the butter!
Last but not least! A birthday cake for a pug lover, Happy Birthday Ali!
