My very first posting here on blogspot was a Sesame Street cake for Alex's 1st birthday. Alex turned 2 this year but it wasn't only her birthday but her mom's - Georgette- as well. Georgette actually gave birth to Alex on her birthday! Georgette and Alex is having a double celebration this year and since Alex is into Winnie the Pooh, here is their cake. This is partly inspired and with her permission by my friend Rouv who is a great cake decorator.
I had a day to work on this cake and I wish I had more time to fine tune some things. It's also my first Winnie the Pooh and Piglet gumpaste figure and I do hope it looks like them! My sister thinks Pooh looks a little Chinese heh. Since it is a mother-daughter joint party, I felt it was appropriate to have the two characters hug with two balloons for each one of them. Of course, we can't leave out Pooh's pot of honey and the bees which was Georgette's special request.
Till next time Georgette and Alex...Happy Birthday!
