This past weekend, I made this wonderfully cute birthday cake for a little boy. The mother sent me a photo of her son so I could make a sugarpaste model of him for the top. This cake was chocolate velvet on the bottom tier and vanilla butter cake on the top tier. I was so happy with this cake, loved how the little boy turned out, the colours, the train and the clothesline. I can't take credit for the clothesline design - the client had found this on another website, I just added in my own flair with the rest of the cake.
I delivered the cake proudly. She opened the door holding her young son and when she saw the cake, she said "Wow.... but he is not 1. He is only 4 months" Ooops, I guess for some reason, I thought it was his first birthday, it was actually his first party. And somehow I didn't clue in with the photo that she sent - I felt terrible. Well, she was so very sweet and let me remove the 1 on the top and add in an extra toy that I made. I'm lucky she was so good about it.
And the next day, she sent me a lovely note that the cake was a hit and she looked forward to me making her sons 1st birthday cake. :-)
