I didn’t really know what to title this cake! It’s a custom cake (just like all my cakes), but it is tailored specifically for Jess!
The top of the cake features a nurses hat, because the birthday girl is a nurse! It also features the birthday girl, Jess, who was expecting her second baby. I love making little edible figures, I can see myself getting better with every one I make! Here’s a graduation girl I made. And here is the 2013 Scripps National Spelling Bee winner! I’ve come a long way since this boating dad, surprise engagement cake, and ultimate fighting engaged couple!
I was asked to include Boston into the cake, I think that is where Jess is from. So I made this mini Boston Red Sox baseball cap cake to tie in that theme. It came out so tiny and cute!
Jess and her husband met at NYU so I included the school logo. I hand painted a purple piece of gum paste using white gel color. I was also asked to include her son Henry somewhere on the cake, so I made this edible gold necklace featuring Henry’s name. The last detail I included was an edible bag from Jess’s favorite store, Henri Bendel. The bag was made out of gum paste and fondant. The label was hand painted. Happy 30th Birthday Jess!
