Remember my piano cake attempt a couple of months ago? *sigh* I remember it VERY well. It was a painful weekend for me....I did however complete the cake the way I intended; it just didn't turn out looking the way I pictured it would.
In between my engagement cake due on Friday; I received a phonecall from Aivy. She wanted to order a cake! Sure thing, when for? Her mom's birthday is on the 16th; but I'll be away in Singapore then...I was flying off on Monday, so we decided to squeeze the cake in for Sunday the 8th. She went home to discuss with her siblings and Mom on the theme of the cake. All went well till she called to confirm a piano. *faints* My last piano took me at least 4 days to sculpt and dry...and I only had 2 days to work on this one!...I wasn't ready...wasn't ready for another piano!I was lucky Aivy and her Mom were pretty flexible with the cake design, and I could come up with a piano 'themed' cake without a PIANO! *laughs*
This is what I came up with.
Keeping in mind it was her Mom's birthday; I decided to make it a little prettier with with pink roses and dainty white flowers. Aivy mentioned the idea of adding in hints of pastel yellow as well;... the cream cheese frosting I used on cake was perfect for the tint of yellow.
I really hope her mom was happy with the cake and they had a good celebration.
I'm currently working on my Dad's birthday cake at my Sis's apartment in Singapore. It's so hard working out of my own kitchen *sigh* Wish me luck guys...I'm going to need it, sigh* cake decorating along the earths equator is no joke! The heat and humidity is unforgiving!
