Serge’s Sweet Sugar Surprise! (2117)
Another birthday cake for my brother Serge! Last year we did an iPad cake and this year the tradition continues with another technology element – his favorite phone! (You can see all of Serge’s birthday cakes here.)
This year, Serge requested a cake with my mom’s famous chocolate frosting on his cake. Of course a buttercream cake wasn’t exciting enough for me : ) So, we also created several sugar elements, including both gumpaste and poured sugar. (This is continuing our poured sugar theme which started a few weeks ago with this silver bucket cake).
The plate and fork and lime are all made out of gumpaste. The knocked over gin and tonic glass is all poured sugar. Serge is definitely an Apple fan…. So as mentioned, we managed to also incorporate his favorite phone into the cake display. He is also a big fan of his personal assistant Siri. So jokingly, the phone reads “Siri who knocked over my gin and tonic PS I love you.”
We celebrated Serge’s birthday with the family at my Mom’s in Morristown. Here’s a video I shot at the house:
Happy Birthday Serge!
