Do you know the brilliant illustrators of Meomi? They make the cutest characters, including these soon to be even more famous ones. Monice phoned me a few months ago to request very special themed cupcakes for her daughter Dakota’s birthday, Octonauts themed! The Octonauts are a creation of Meomi, and there are storybooks featuring some crazy characters and cool, bonkers undersea adventures. Dakota’s fave characters are Tweek the Bunny, Kwazii the Kitten and Barnacles the Bear, so I spent many hours slaving away in creating these adorable little faces out of fondant and edible marker, and also decided to make the pink jellyfish perplexed face too!
The cake was also a labour of love, chocolate with vanilla buttercream, topped with light blue underwater fondant, swaying seaweed, little starfish and mini blue rufflefish, and for a topper, a pink blowfish! I got to meet Dakota, she is so sweet and cute, and absolutely loved the cupcakes… she even said “they smell so good!!” Meeting the recipients of the cakes I work so hard on and seeing their excited reaction really makes me happy.
Apologies for yet again a mega picture explosion… I loved this order so much, and was so grateful that I could add some Meomi-powered sunshine to little Dakota’s world.
