ouch!

 

A stack of tires is not my style at all, but the original was very nicely done.  I can see someone wanting it if they are into cars, motorcycles, etc

No idea who or what a Honey Boo-Boo is, but seriously - who are you to judge?

 

It's great that more and more couples are choosing cakes which mirror themselves and their interests! It makes for creative caking. Maybe the couple own a car dealership, or are members of an antique car club , or are into motorcycles  - the possibilities are endless.

 

Or maybe you really WANT to make the same old 80s retro nightmare with bridges and plastic tchotchkes and satellite cakes and crap.....

 

Or the rough-iced cake with one big peony.....

AI read that the couple are racers or racing mechanics. Something to do with racing so it makes sense for them to choose a cake that matches their interests. Isn't that one of the things we ask when a client is trying to decide on a design?

Hey now, I love the single peony! Hate making it, but love getting orders for it.

Slam, bam, thank you ma'am... easy money :)

AMe too. I did about a hundred of those last year. Each and every couple thought they were just SOOOOOO original.

Those cakes gave my employees lots of GP peony practice!

APerhaps they just wanted three tiers but there was some sort of spelling fiasco or dyslexic issue and they got three "tires" instead. ;) Seriously though, why not tires? Variety is spice of life after all!

Ha - how rude. My FIL collects / restores tractors and I made him a Tractor tyre cake for his birthday that has just gone - and even though it certainly wasn't fantastic he loved it, each to his own I say!
