Lamb-y (smash cake).
This is a sad story that I didn’t want to post on FB. I was asked to keep it off FB but was told that this forum would be alright. A little boy going through some medical issues drew his little “Lamby” (his bedtime snuggle toy) while he was in his hospital bed. His Mom wanted to surprise him with a cake that looked just like his drawing. Some cakers around here either didn’t have time on short notice to make it, or were not able to make the cake within the parents’ tight budget. In I come. She found my FB page and told me the story and I did this within a few hours last night to take to him this morning. I finished decorating it at the nurse’s station and set up the backdrop there for photos, before I took the cake into his room, where his older brother and parents were waiting. This little boy’s mouth was stuck on open and I think that it’s safe to say, his whole family were super happy. It’s little things like that which make it unnecessary to make a big profit on cakes in my opinion. As long as you’re not losing money, why not just take in a thin margin once in a while, for something like this? Right?!
Anyway, it’s chocolate cake on the inside and Whip N Ice, with fondant accents, on the outside! SO CUTE :)
