18th Birthday Cake
by Kimmy NZ
BMX Birthday Babe.
OK, so this 18th birthday cake was a super challenge. It had to be girly………,but not too girly.
She is an amazing BMX bike racer (I know nothing about this!) She loves the racing fashion and wanted a bit of Bling. Oh, and not forgetting her favourite colour is purple……..no pressure!!!!
I was just not getting this and didn’t know what to do. Then I saw photos and WOW!!! Pictures in the coolest racing outfit’s and the one that really did it for me – A gorgeous prom photo –
The birthday girl was dressed in an elegant white dress but instead of a prom date, she was holding her bike by the handles with the bike balanced on its back wheel. Did I mention that she may be a tomboy, but she is a stunning young lady.
This cake was very blingy but it doesn’t show up in the photo. The 18 and the silver on the shoe was a bike chain made with fondant. The green, pink and black is taken from her racing top with the fox logo being the make of the clothes.
I could have written happy birthday but I noticed the words YOU ROCK
as a comment from her Mum written under a photo of her with a winning cup. I took a photo and traced it onto flat fondant then painted the bike silhouette and popped it onto a wooden cocktail stick.
So that all the glitter showed up, her Mum had a table ready with lots of fairy lights around the edge, and it looked really cool. Lorelie's Response
