Y’all yeti for this? I don’t think you’re ready for this yeti. I don’t think you’re yeti for this jelly. I made this hee-lariously cute kawaii yeti cake for my sweet pal Nancy – I made her son Wolfgang’s wolf cake back in October – she messaged me asking if I would be interested in doing a yeti cake and YES OH YES I WAS INTERESTED.
I drew several yeti cakes before I settled on this guy. Still, I am always such a stress ball when I’ve never made a cake with a particular design before – even though it looks straightforward, there were things to consider – blue face plate on top of the fur? Blue face plate on the crumb coat? Smiley mouth? Tuft of buttercream fur bangs? Was it going to LOOK like a yeti, or look like a snowball with a blue face?? Sometimes I give myself a low-grade fever working on cake until it comes out the way I wanted it to. I will even fiddle around with eye and cheek placement because I feel there’s an exact moment when something goes from not kawaii to kawaii … :P
After I finished the cake and Nancy had picked it up, I was cleaning up some of Teddy’s toys and came across a QUATCHI stuffie! The old adorable-faced sasquatch from the Vancouver 2010 Olympics – and thought, oh man that would’ve been cute, a white and blue Quatchi style cake… but I am happy with how my yeti cake turned out! Happy birthday Kit Ming and thank you again Nancy for the great cake request!! xo Lyndsay
