Promise, just one more blog entry for tonight and then I’ll finally hit the sack for some much needed zzzzzs. :)
I spent a great part of today and last night in the kitchen working on yet another cake. It’s for a 50th birthday and I only had 2 days notice, receiving the request just last Thursday. I didn’t really mind because I had everything I needed to bake and decorate a cake. Plus, we didn’t have anything planned for today except for an evening of tennis, which I skipped for fear of ending up just tripping all over myself at the tennis court.
Back to the cake. It was to be a surprise gift to the birthday celebrant. The giver wanted a fun cake for her friend. The only detail about the birthday celebrant that was supplied to me was that she loved designer fashion…and cars. The celebrant loves Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Chanel and BMW. And that’s all l I needed to know to come up with a cake. *wink*
This was a super fun cake to make! That much I can tell you! I did have to spend some time doing research as I am clueless when it comes to designer purses.
I may not have anything from these designer brands (not yet! ) in my closet, but I can sure as heck make them out of gumpaste! Hee hee hee. The BMW keyholder was oversized. I can’t possibly make it in a size that will fit in the purses. :P
LV, check. LV is LOVE. ;)
Chanel, check. I’m going Coco, err, loco! :D
To be fun, fashionable and fabulous at fifty is the way to go…at any age and budget for that matter!
I hope the recipient loved her cake as much as her giver did. As much as I loved making it! This is an 8-inch Hershey’s Perfectly Chocolate Chocolate Cake with Custard Filling.
I can now sit back and relax, read ebooks, watch movies and enjoy the home theatre system wireless. I just remembered, we don’t have a home theater! I really need to get some sleep. Hahaha!
Cheers, y’all! Be fun and fabulous! Mabuhay!
