When my customer first asked for a Simpson’s cake for her son there were a few ideas like the whole family on the couch but I really wanted to do something different. And so the idea of Bart on a skate board came about and I began to google. I wanted to do him crouched down but knew that he had to travel for about an hour to the party destination so I didn’t want to risk him toppling. So I found him in this pose and decided to make him like this.
He was the most challenging structured cake to date that I have made,he stood at 50 cm tall, and he took so much longer than I expected, but I loved seeing him come to life. Many years ago I bought the Simpsons tape (yes I said tape lol) which had a song called ‘Do the Bart Man’ and this kept playing over and over in my mind during his construction, funny the things we remember.
The Birthday boy was rather speechless when he saw him which was so cool and he kept saying thank you, apparently he talked about him all last night too, and I was rather relieved to receive a text message mid morning to say that he had arrived safely at the party venue.
Cakie hugs and thanks for looking.
