Hi Everyone,


Been a long long time I haven't been on here....Any-who, a client is asking me for an abstract babyshower cake with butterflies, I'm at a bit of a loss...What would you do??? Nothing comes to mind for some reason. 


Thanks guys!

AHow big is the cake?

I would have the butterflies landed to make the silhouette of a pregnant woman. Have a few flying towards the silhouette.

AOh oh! You could do a large butterfly and the wing patterns could suttlely be items associated with babies...like a hide and seek drawing.

Everyone has a different idea of what 'Abstract' means, so I would get the client to send you some pictures with a few different ideas of the styles and colours she wants and then design something from there x

I would definitely ask her for some pics of what she does like rather than what she doesn't like. Or at least get her to describe a few ideas to you. I'm just thinking that if you google 'abstract cakes' you get some very different styles and ideas, she might think of abstract in a completely different way to how you think of something that is abstract x
