This cake, along with a Miami Hurricanes groom’s cake traveled (unassembled) a little over 6 hours to make it to a reception for my brother’s step-daughter. Normally (NEVER) I do not use real flowers to decorate any cake. I prefer making wireless sugar flowers for floral cakes and I made them for this cake (real flowers are on the cake in picture) The flowers came back home with me. Don’t get me wrong, I love real flowers. But rarely, if ever, do people special order cake/food ready (pesticide free and/or properly prepped for food contact) flowers/greenery to adorn their cake/food and that can be a problem.
For next Sunday, I get to play a bit…an Olivia themed (not necessarily with her on/around it) cake for my Granddaughter’s 2nd birthday.
The sofa began as a basic project, something useful to do with leftover wood, fabric, and other stuffs that my grandchildren might enjoy. As it progressed, my picky self tried to take over and the novelty and fun of it waned. I had to call it finished before I either became obsessed with it or tossed it. I may go back to it at another time to add details but, for now, it’s DONE!
