50th Birthday

This past weekend a friend Marisa celebrated a milestone birthday. She is now 50 years young. Her sister Norma asked if we could make a # 50 cake to help celebrate and of course we accepted the offer.  Norma had sent me a picture of pillows that Marisa has which are in her favourite shades of blue to give us an idea of the colour pallet. So when we saw the pillows we immediate thought to take the design off the pillow and put it on her cake.  We were also told that Marisa loves sea shells so we added a few of those as well.

The # 50 cake was our yummy and very popular chocolate Guinness cake filled with white chocolate mousse.  We covered the cake in a light blue butter cream and then added the design from a deeper blue fondant.  The sea shells are made from gum paste and dusted in various shades of pinks with a touch of white.

I received a text message from Norma telling me that Marisa was surprised and the cake was a huge hit.
Happy 50th Birthday Marisa!
