One of the best parts of owning a local bakery is getting to know your customers. Unlike those crazy supermarkets, your local bakery knows you. For example, take this awesomely fun birthday cake for one of our favorite Gainesville customers — the Evelyn Carnival Cake:
Supermarket bakeries are the fast-food of cake shops. You’re a number– and you get processed food that certainly wasn’t made from scratch. Of course, that’s a story for another day.
We love the fact that we can learn about our customers and watch them grow. This cake, it’s not just a carnival themed birthday cake.
This is Evelyn’s birthday cake.
Evelyn’s mom is very creative — and she’s a lot of fun. With an entire carnival themed birthday, this cake needed to keep the theme, highlight the star of the show, and remember the reason for the celebration.
This wasn’t just Evelyn’s birthday. This was a cake to celebrate her 4th birthday. =)
The top of the cake featured a Pop Corn “bucket” cake complete with fondant pop corn. Sure, we could have used real pop corn (and that still would have been edible), but sugar art is just WAY more awesome. =) =)
As I said, we love our customers, and we loved the honor of making Evelyn’s 4th birthday cake. With her Gainesville, carnival themed cake out of the way, we’re already looking forward to the big 5.
