Two weeks ago, I got a request from my daughter's best friend, Lauren.
She wanted a Hunger Games themed cake for her birthday.
I was very impressed by the detailed information she gave me.
Look at the DRAFT she provided.
(see image below).
Very detailed, isn't it?
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 if we can make the cake a little simpler.
I asked her -- "how many guest is she planning to invite?"
She said six (6) kids.
I said, a 3- tiered cake will be a lot to feed 6 kids!
And she agreed!
However, later on I decided to stick to her design but modified some of the details.
I wanted to share this conversation with Lauren, 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.
Since I was very impressed by her creativity, artistic talent and she made me laugh ---
this will be my birthday gift to her.
HAPPY 11th BIRTHDAY LAUREN!
