“I loved the cake and so did everyone else.  Thanks a lot for making me a beautiful cake and making my day extra special.  I will definitely be coming back and I definitely will share this with friends and family. Thank u so much.”  -Ashley C. (Oxen Hill, MD)

My client for this cake requested a treasure chest cake for a baby shower that she was throwing.  On the information sheet that I sent her, she had several different ideas that she wanted on the cake and several different colors that she was using for her party.  I was concerned that including all of these ideas and colors would lead to a cake that was a bit too busy, so we worked together to pick her “essentials” which were the Hello Kitty, flowers, and butterfly.  We also decided to use just two shades of pink with a pop of purple for the colors.  Both of these decisions led to a more polished looking cake.
