Blowing his horn

Saxophone jazzI’ve known Trevor for many years and have had many discussions about jazz and music with him. Trevor plays tenor saxophone for his band, The Trevor Clefs. He’s one talented guy! So I was delighted that his daughter asked me to make him a cake for his 80th birthday.
Trevor is involved in all manner of things: he helps out at church, volunteers at the local museum, loves theatre and music. He was a radio announcer and hosted a jazz show and a morning show. But his love of the sax and jazz was my focus for the cake.
The sax on the cake is fondant painted in gold. I tried to make the lettering look like jazz. Confetti and squiggles helped make the sound visual, I think.
Happy birthday Trevor and keep blowing your horn for many years to come.

Rock around the clock

electric guitar 22This funky little electric guitar was for Marc’s 50th birthday. I used all sorts of candy for the frets and other guitar parts. His wife requested I used two of his faves: Kit Kat chocolate bars and chocolate covered coffee beans. Done! I also used chocolate mint sticks, jujubes and a Lifesaver.
Marc loved it and I know he’ll rock his 50s!
