A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of making a cake for Wendy Updegraff of Wendy Updegraff Photography. She threw her son an awesome water themed party, complete with dunk tank!
In our talks regarding the cake design, it became apparent very quickly that her son had pretty sophisticated taste for an almost-eleven-year-old! He definitely did not want a typical "kiddie" cake. But we still wanted the cake to be fun while complimenting the water theme.
What could be more fun and kid friendly than a cake covered in rock candy?
I love how the light and dark shades of blue rock candy echo the water element. Wendy came up with the clever idea of using the rock candy sticks as the number eleven...perfect touch! The bottom cake tier was red velvet and cream cheese filling (the birthday boy's favorite) and the top tier was vanilla with chocolate filling.
Check out the colorful and fun food table!
