So two weeks ago I got a request from my daughter's friend to make a Hunger Games themed cake for her birthday. I was very impressed at the detailed information she gave me. I should hire her when I open shop in the future. Look at the DRAFT she provided me, so detailed. That suggestion on what to use to mimic sand -- "You should use brown sugar" and "sprinkle sugar to look like snow" -- brilliant! -- and the part to use google to search for images. Smart kid!
Although, I kind of suggested (more like convinced her) to make it a little simple. And she agreed, especially when I asked her -- how many guest is she planning of inviting and she said six (6) kids. Three tiers will be a lot of cake for 6 kids to eat...Too funny!
However later on I decided to stick to the design but modified some of the details.
I want to share this conversation with the celebrant, as it's too cute not to share-- I asked her -- how much are you paying me for your cake? She said "$40 is all I have, will that be enough? Too cute.
So, since I was very impressed by her creativity, artistic talent and she made me laugh --- this will be my birthday gift to her.
