yeap... the cakes are still coming... *laughs*
I've stopped taking orders recently, but the past week has been all cake and no rest for Su. I've finally ran out of most of my cake decorating ingredients and wont be buying/making anymore till I get back to Malaysia.
This cake was made for Brendon; also known as B-boy Red.. (for those who are wondering what a B-boy is; it's a breakdancer). Here's a short candid video I took of Red at their usual practice spot on Liverpool St. He does awesome headspins.
I actually really like taking candid photos and videos of Brendon..*shrug* I'm not a stalker or anything...*laughs* he's just really photogenic!
I must admit..he is a handsome looking guy; with cheeky charms to boot~. Though physically Caucasian; he spent his childhood in Indonesia, and speaks a fair bit of the native language. I find it amusing when he sometimes says words in Bahasa Indonesia with a full accent! He's a great dancer and gives amazing style to everything he does.It was his 30th birthday last weekend; I stacked a small 3 tiered birthday cake for the party. Everything on the cake was done with fondant; and the street sign was done with support of a wooden skewer. The clothes were made to match what B-boy Red usually wears to practice.
If you're wondering why "Beat St"? It's from the legendary film from the 1980's about Hiphop culture and breakdancing. All B-boys are big fans of the movie.
I thought it'd be a good idea to help fill in the gap on the left hand side of the cake. *shrug*
I'm not really into making "weird" stacked shapes; like topsy-turvys or what not.
I do appreciate a good share of innovation when it comes to stacking cakes on top of each other, but I personally feel sometimes too much ambition/creativity creates a messy and awkward cake. I guess I did alright with this one... everyone at the party was generous with compliments! ;) *grin*
