BRAD'S 40TH BIRTHDAY
May 27, 2013
My nephew and Godson, Brad celebrated his 40th birthday last May. I'm a day late and a dollar short adding this to my blog, but better late than never so they say. Time sure flies when life is happening. Well, of course Auntie Puma would make his cake. Two of them. And two dozen cupcakes. So now, the theme. Brad is a wonderful artist, so I decided to stick with that, but keep it somewhat whimsical. As I was modeling the fondant "supplies" for the decorations on his Pina Colada cake, thoughts of other favorites of Brad's ran through my head, and I realized I'd need more than one cake. A second, chocolate cake was now in order decorated with some fondant "signature" items. This is what I came up with. Brad loved both cakes, but I think the most fun was watching his daughter, Nikole, 7 at the time, and the other kids ripping the cakes apart, enjoying an edible paintbrush, sketch pad, and everything else. Hours in the making; decimated in seconds.
