I was honored to make a birthday cake for a repeat client last weekend. He is colorful, full of life, energy, and encouragement. He cannot be summed up in a cake but I wanted to expose some of his energy and texture in this cake. After it was finished I deeply wished I'd made the icing dollips in different shades of teal, I think it would have added the bit of character I felt it was lacking. However the Italian cream cake sealed inside I was happy with. I do still like the whimsy and texture of the cake but do wish I would have pumped up the color some more. Next time.
