30th "Tigger" birthday cake

Today's custom cake is a two-tiered red velvet cake covered in fondant and topped with a handmade fondant "Tigger".

Done on short notice the cake proved to be a bit difficult to finish thanks to the heat. Luckily the cake was on the smaller side so I was able to finish sections of it before anything got too hot and unworkable.

The client picked up the cake and said she was thrilled with results. She had confided in me that she left the ordering of the cake a bit too late as everyone else she had asked was booked or unable to squeeze the cake in. I have found this to be the dilemma for most people inquiring about a cake. Pre-made cakes from the store are easy to come by and there is little time needed to order one. A custom per order cake takes time and planning and should be ordered at least a week in advance. I'm so happy that I was able to help make this birthday special for this Tigger fan.
