Spring & Over-Grown Garden Cake
by Jo O
Over-Grown Garden Grass Cake
I made this for my best friend's birthday end of Oct '8. Was happy with it cos it turned out very colourful & simple structured. My son & 2nd cuz helped with decorating it! I just made all the bits & bops; which may I say had to travel 800km to get to its destination interstate!
Being a single mum, my friend is always going on about how she HATEs having to do the mowing all the time. And so as her best friend, I decided to give her MORE rampaging grass to cut!! hahaha
- Im horridly cheeky!
So here's her cake with the grass & weeds all over grown & strawberries & flowers & vines & what not are taking over becos its Spring!! This is what happens in a fantasy garden! ;) Her real life pet rabbits are on the loose, as are her pet rats! Her daughter is standing there hands behind back, looking across at Mum & both have speech bubbles beside them.
"!@?!*!! WHAT??!...I just mowed last week?!!"
Daughter smugly replies:
"Yup! That's Spring for ya Mum!"
I tried to get the figurines to look as close to the real ppl & pets! The daughter DOES have that smirky look about her,...in a cute adorable way! The Mum DOES look bewildered & tired; as ALL us Mums do!
I think I did a reasonable job cos her family were very impressed as was my friend! Felt great to see her response!
It's hard trying to get all the features I did for this cake onto 1 picture because it was so ALL around! So I tried a collage! I hope it comes out! Otherwise go check it out here:
It's still a lil amateur but the more I do the more I love it & the better I get! LOVE it! ;)
