wannabe cakes

I got this crazy idea…ceramic cupcakes with a Tim Burton kinda appeal! So I’m doing  a series on all the cakes we’re so familiar (and not so familiar with) as we move through our lives. Here’s a sampling – a retirement cake, wedding cake, birthday cake and wake cake. Yeah, I did use a big old-fashioned looking watch for the retirement cake and the “day of the dead” motif for the wake cake. Those two cakes just don’t have perfect symbols like a wedding or birthday cake – I had to improvise, but wait, isn’t improvisation a form of artistic expression? I don’t know yet about the coloring for the retirement cake but the wedding cake will be white, of course, and the birthday cake will have pink & blue sprinkles and the wake cake will have super dark frosting to contrast with the bright coloring of the “day of the dead” skull.

I’d love to hear from you…
