I grew up in Alabama, and in the South, by March, Spring has definitely sprung. It's already warm there and the flowers are blooming. But here in Brooklyn, the long, cold, gray Winter doesn't seem to want to end, no matter how much I still expect it to. So, it is nice to have a bright and cheery project to work on this time of year. When we got a call asking if we could create a particularly fun and colorful cake for a book launch party, it was, to my mind, the cake equivalent of that first mild, sunshine-y day when you can leave the coat at home. The perfect project for early March!
The Nathan Durfee's illustration on the cover of Natalie Standiford's new book, Switched at Birthday, features a brightly-colored, three-tiered, polka-dotted cake and the folks at The Gernert Company wanted to surprise the author by serving the real life version at the party. What do you think? I loved how this Joyful Cake turned out and was glad to hear that the client did, too!
"The cake was a hit! Everyone loved it, the author was beyond surprised, and once we finally gave in and cut it, it was totally delicious. We really appreciate the beautiful (and tasty!) work." - Logan Garrison, The Gernert Company
Happy (almost) Spring, everybody!
