Thank You For Helping Us Grow!

My friend Beth placed an order for her son's teacher's birthday celebration. She wanted a cake for the teacher to take home and cupcakes to share with her class. As inspiration, she sent me this picture of a platter that they were going to give to the teacher as a thank you for her hard work.

I love it when clients do this, by the way. It's fun for me to personalize a cake in this way.

So, when I looked at the inspiration, I really wanted to incorporate the flower for obvious reasons and I thought that green would be the best accent color. So here's what I came up with.

It's not pictured, but I added writing on the side of the cake that said, "Thank you for helping us grow." I felt that the side was a little naked and needed something more.

Here's the top of the cake. I was able to imprint each of the petals and when complete, I used some purple luster dust to give it some sheen and accentuate the imprints.

These are the matching cupcakes for the class.

The cake is a yellow cake with chocolate buttercream and half of the cupcakes are yellow and the other half are chocolate. The flowers are made out of fondant.

I hope JP's teacher has a great birthday celebration!
