A 3D Piece Of Cake

(Adam. For once not doing anything in particular but just being cute.)















My wife, Min, recently decided to go into the cake-making business. Well sort of. It's still just a great hobby for her. And she IS having lots of fun. Couple of weeks ago she made a cake for a kid's birthday who'd wanted a Barbie doll cake. If the kid had said that to me I would have just stared and asked, "What the @#$* is a Barbie doll cake?" But Min, being the creative mom she is knew and came up with this...

Good eh? Almost everything in that 3D party scene is edible. You can't eat the Ken and Barbie dolls obviously. Unless you're a pervert.

On the table are a pizza, a jelly, cookies, hamburgers, ice cream cones and of course the birthday cake. All edible. The mini-ottomans they are sitting on are cake. The mini paper bags and gifts packages are also custom made and contain real presents. The candlelabra is made from chicken wire. Can't eat it but you can use it to pick your teeth after.

There's more stuff to see if you go to her blogsite...Mama Min

She's got a great tagline too...Happiness Is Homemade.

Am I putting in a plug for my wife? Sure. Can't think of anyone else I'd rather do it for. And the smell of cake baking sure beats the hell out of that haze shit.

Enjoy.

I have respect for a person who can make a Barbie cake without having the temptation to strangle the person who ask for it...
A big salute to your wife, Mr. Teoh, sir! hehe...

She's really creative in doing the cakes. I have not come across anyone yet who can bake such 3D cakes.

One of these days I shall want to order one for my daughter! But how to courier to KK ah?

patrickteoh said...

Thanks julian. Yes sending a 3D cake to KK would pose some problems:-)

Shai, usually the people you want to kill are the parents of the people who asked for the barbie cakes:-) hahahaha...

Awesome stuff! Now I know who to call if I need cakes with extravagant decorations and ideas! =)

*keys in Min's number*

Don't worry - no Barbie cakes are on my mind. Maybe something with a G.I. Joe theme. *ROFL!*
