The client wants the bright colors of the fiesta theme with a baby twist, any ideas?
How about using either some baby rattles/maracas, tiny and/or pinatas?
These aren't cake related but I thought they might give you some inspiration:
Maybe someone else will come along and offer some more ideas to you....
Good luck and please post your pic when your done.
How about a baby with a serape(sp?) style blanket over it (peeking out of the blanket). I have done a baby cake with a "quilt" over a plastic crawling baby.
Or maybe a baby holding maracas instead of a rattle?
I think the idea of maracas is definately cool. For a little twist to that, if you used a small balloon as your template for your gumpaste, pop the balloon once the gumpaste is dry (sorta like when you do paper mache - but crisco the balloon first). Fill your hollow gumpaste maraca with some rice so it really makes sound!
Those are some great ideas. They have given me something to think about.
And those links were perfect. THANK YOU!
ThanhThanh that is an adorable cake, I love the chili border!
Thanks for all the great ideas!
Thanh Thanh, thanks for sharing that cake. I just LOVE your work. It's so perfect and clean!
