I love it when clients give me free reign on designing their cake. It also helps when clients have a VERY CLEAR idea of their design, as is the case with this next cake from my favorite cake family from across the street. B is turning 6 years old, here is her drawing she did with mom:
It couldn't be any clearer! Orange ribbon-like squiggles, green diamonds clustered at the bottom and a few throughout, pink and purple little hearts, with a base color of pink fondant. So, here's the cake, how did I do?
A friend found it rare that such a young person could be so clear in her instructions.

I can confidently say this is the awesomest original design of a cake that I've ever made!
On another note, it was also MY birthday! I turned 34 (does that mean mid-30's?), and Buu made ME a cake! (Talk about giving the space for people to explore) He ended up making just half a box of cake mix, so here I am on Chu On Cakes presenting the first ever, open-faced cake:
