Children's Toy Birthday Cake by cakecrumbs Children's Toy Birthday Cake by cakecrumbs
This was a birthday cake I was commissioned to do. The family asked for a colourful, two tiered cake adorned with all their son’s favourite toys. They sent me photos of the toys they wanted me to replicate: a ladybug soft toy, a phone, a walker, a football, a wind-up fish and a toy hummer. They also wanted a giraffe, and a rubber duck on top with a pacifier in it's mouth. Then they wanted the birthday boy's name on blocks on the cake. There were some other toys they wanted on but I couldn't add them because they were licensed characters. When I looked down the list I was seriously concerned the cake would become clutter-central. I opted to space them out as much as possible around the cake, making them quite small on one tier. The figures took 2 full days work. 

The cake itself is chocolate truffle cake on the bottom, layered and filled with whipped chocolate ganache. The top cake is strawberry cake layered and covered in vanilla buttercream. That's all covered in fondant and decorated. All up about 3-4 days work. 

You can see more pics and deets at the blog: cakecrumbs.me/2014/04/02/child…

The stitches on the giraffe and all those other tiny details make this cake amazing.
