I do love customers that let me do my thing and I love short briefs but this time it is to short!
I was given girlie pink and lilacs!!

The problem is it's a little girl and she only 8

You don't want it to childish or to grown up! I don't even no what the little girl is into and the mother is no help! But expecting me to come up with something fantastic lol

Has anyone done a cake in theses colours for a girl this age or have you got a photo in your saved pictures that you think would fit this brief please. Got make it in the next two days!

Many thanks x

Have you looked through the red/pink section of the galleries? I bet you'd find something pink/lilacs there, so much inspiration in those galleries!
Its pretty hard to think of a theme without knowing the little girl (have only made cakes for my own girls)

This week I'm making a pillow cake with a shoe and lippy on top for a little girl who's turning 7. I have one similar, single pink one with shoe, in my photos. Perhaps something girly, pampering or a little bit posh for the cake for the 8 year old?

You could do a purse/make up themed cake. With the colors chosen I would expect she's very girly. I've got an order for a 10 year old for a barbie cake... same colors... Hth

It might help if we know a bit more info. What size/shape are you going for? Some designs for say a sheet would not translate to round etc. Single 8"er would not help if going for a tiered.
Other than telling you to surf the galleries &/or 'net not much else to offer.


not the color or theme you want but these basic ideas might help? :
