Birthday Cake: Animal Farm - January 2008


While working on the wedding cake project on 25 January 2008, a request came to make a cake for a five-year old kid's birthday on 26 January 2007. As i cannot refuse anything for kids, i said 'yes' and off i went on a spree to spent two hours in the evening to make the cake. The kid's mom just wanted the letter '5' but i had just casually asked, 'what does the kid love ?' and he loves animals. Well, it gave me an idea and this is what i could do - a buttercream icing cake with the theme of the animal farm. Except for the animals (which i purchased in a rush-rush moment from the supermarket), everything else was made using buttercream icing. After i had made the cake, then i realised..hey, i should used a little more of orange colour to qualify for pooja's theme of the Republic Day http://creativepooja.blogspot.com/ Anyway, there is always the next time, isn't it ! Will soon post the pics for the wedding cake.

Extremely beautiful cakes! Bird flu is still rampant in Bengal, especially in the rural areas and small towns, where the disease is spreading because of people's unawareness and poor hygiene. The forest department has even identified some migratory birds with this virus. I hope it stops,because winter is still strong here.

absolutely lovely, 2 hours for the cake. And that is so sweet of you to go ahead and make a theme which the boy would like. What was the boy's reaction?

Anamika:The Sugarcrafter said...

Hi archana
thanks for your comment, well the boy had not expected or visualised the cake this way, so was very happy and first thing he did was counting the no. of farm animals !
