Music man

bassoon & piano birthdayBirthday boy Brian loves music. Not only does he sing, he also plays the bassoon, piano and piano accordion. So for his 70th birthday, I needed to make a cake that showed Brian’s passions.
A first for me, I’ve never made a bassoon from fondant before. What fun.
Here’s to Brian, our very own music man. I’m sure his special day will be filled with laughter, music and song.

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.
