|Kaben's cake at The Car Barn|
This year, Kaben wanted a a candy themed birthday party so we set out to design his cake. But at some point Kaben decided that his favorite toy Tow Mater also needed to make an appearance.
Our instructions here were to make it big and make it busy, but Kaben's Mom trusted us and gave us some flexibility on the design. I decided right away that the cake needed to have some wonky elements on it, plus I wanted it to have plenty of candy and candy themed elements.
I made lollipops out of fondant and used candy like gummy worms and suckers to make the design fuller and busier. Oh, and the gummy bears!! Not only did I use regular gummy bears, but I found these HUGE gummy bears on Amazon! I placed them just underneath the top tier and used crystal columns and a LED light to back light them! It's hard to tell in this picture, but they lit up really nicely!!
And speaking of extreme elements, we made a Tow Mater bursting out of the side of the cake and HE TALKED! How did we do that?? Well, you'll just have to drop back in on Friday and Chaddy will tell you all about it (TEASE!!)
And if that wasn't enough, I even got my Bubbee from My Wood Working Solutions to help out with the cake stand. He made a custom cake stand for Kaben's cake. He bought lollipops and encased them in resin for the feet on the stand! Isn't he brilliant! You can read more about the stand on his blog, but I did get a closeup of it (below). Yes, it has lights too!
Thanks for stopping by and make sure you come back on Friday for our Cake sound tutorial! You're going to love it!!
