So today I wanted to talk to you about cakes and dessert tables.
In my opinion, 3D cakes like the one above don't go well with dessert tables. Tables usually include loads of sweet treats, sometimes even lunch boxes or drinks, so I think such cakes get lost in the design... Shame since they take ages to make and are so beautiful.
This is the pirate table I did for my eldest daughter's 4th Birthday (my first ever dessert table!). Even though the display is pretty simple, I don't think my cake really stands out. Granted my picture isn't the best, but still, that cake is amazing on its own, it does not need other bits and pieces around it.
(Do you know it actually took me a whole day to decorate it ?)
Love this styled shoot found here
So since I decided to make a 3D fire engine cake for the Fireman Birthday (or more accurately Romain decided, he loves that cake, bless him !) I figured I had to move away from the traditional set up of dessert tables.
This time the cake WILL be the centerpiece and the rest will have to create a decor to make it stand out, put it into context...
Let's hope I can achieve the vision I have. Clock is ticking so better get back to work ! ;-)
