Fire engine yellow

An action shot of two firemen unraveling a hose from a fire engine. The birthday boy was particular that it should be this type of fire engine - a yellow airport one. I never even knew they existed!
Figurines standing on a cake board are tricky because they have no wires holding them in place - they need to be balanced enough to stand upright with the help of gravity. In addition to that, these lil guys were carrying oxygen tanks on their backs and holding a very delicate hose. All turned out fine in the end, there were no fires to put out!

Engaged in cake

This cake makes a statement instantly - right away you can tell it's a cake for an engagement. On top of that, it doubles as a display for the couple's most romantic photos. You can't pack more punch into a cake than that! The rest of the cake was designed to match the invitation - with scattered blue leaves and royal blue ribbon.
