Fraggle Rock Cake

I was absolutely thrilled to be asked to create the Fraggle Rock 30th reunion cake.  The talented, creative and fun team came together a couple weeks ago to celebrate at The Spoke Club.  Some of you may have seen this cake posted on the Fraggle Rock FB page the other day.

Here is the original cake design by the creative genius Michael Frith.  I must say it was the MOST challenging cake I have ever had to create with all the detailed characters, colors and character expressions - but I loved every minute of it!  I was also determined to add a few extra surprise features to the cake.

Here are some close-ups of the characters:  Marjory the Trash Heap, Boober, Mokey and Gobo.

Here are some more photos of the behind-the-scenes of the Fraggle Rock cake.  Hope you enjoyed the cake photos - Happy 30th Fraggle Rock!

Hi Juanita, you've done a fantastic job! I love your Mokey and I'd forgotten all about the Trash Heap!! You've taken me back to my childhood :) And your behind the scenes shots are such a good idea - but is your station really that tidy all the time? Erin
