It's been a long long time.....

Hello to all my cake friends.  It's been a busy busy year so far.  For a long time I've been wanting to post about some special cakes and special clients.  I finally have a minute to collect my thoughts and share these special moments with you.

As we all know, milestone birthdays are a big reason to celebrate.  I had a special client, a daughter living in Germany who wanted to order a special cake for her Mom here in Ontario.  She wanted a special tea set of hers done in sugarwork.  She sent me her china pattern, so I made her a teapot and a couple of cups and saucers for her birthday.  Because the daughter was in Germany and not able to be at her Mom's birthday, my husband accompanied me to the surprise delivery to videotape the special moment.  It brought tears to my eyes seeing the pleasure that her Mom got from receiving this special gift from her daughter, orchestrated from so far away.  

Here is the china pattern and the cake I made to match it.


Soon after, I made a similar set to match another special lady's china set for her 90th birthday.
