Fancy Candy Drippy Cake!

Have you ever finished decorating a cake and you step back and you SQUEAL LIKE A TEENAGED GIRL AT A SLUMBER PARTY because you’ve fallen deep in love with your own creation?? But then you CRY INSIDE when you have to give it up even though you wish you could shellac it, mount it on the wall, snuggle it like a favourite stuffie. Take it for a walk and feed it. Anyhoo. This cutie beauty drippy cake is certainly one of my new favourites, made for my sweet pal Phanie’s son Moses. I love her post about his party, and his birthday, and about him. I love the emphasis on simplicity, doing just what the kid wants.

I’ve always been a fan of vibrant colour – I sure love how the bright hue of that teal buttercream, and how the shiny crispy fancy candy shines on top of the cake!

I’ve been doing trades with Phanie for years now – cakes for photos. It’s my favourite kind of bartering. She did my recent set of photos and she also wrote this about me on her own blog – sheesh. What a lady.

Look at this sweetness – photos taken by Phanie. Sunny Spring day, green grass, fresh air and a gaggle of close friends, smiles and laughter. It is pure magic how a cake suddenly elevates anything into a celebration to remember.

Happy 7th birthday, Momo! And thank you Phanie for your friendship! I am lucky to know such a caring, hilarious and thoughtful soul.

    If you would just move to THIS coast, you could make my birthday cakes. I’d even let you eat a piece.

    This is so beautiful! The colours are so bright and happy! It must have been hard to watch it get eaten, but the look on their faces is totally worth it :)

    Hey Lindsay! Thanks so much for popping over to my blog this morning and for your touching comment on my 1st Blogiversary post — it totally made my day!

    And wow, what a gorgeous little cake! I love that you’re not afraid to play with colour and your work has such a whimsy to it! I’m not much of a baker myself but this post is so inspiring.

    And don’t you love creative trades? I do them often with photographers and florists for blog content. It’s so much fun to work with a group of creative people to enrich your content.

    Have a lovely weekend!
