Last weekend, we went to the fair — Gainesville’s Hoggetowne Medieval Faire to be exact. To help celebrate a birthday at this well attended event, our bakery created a custom fondant Harley Quinn cake.
For those not fully familiar with the DC Universe, Harley Quinn (or Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel) frequently dates The Joker and terrorizes the caped crusader, Batman. As her play-on-words name implies, Harley Quinn dresses in a jester/harlequin style — making this cake perfect for Gainesville’s medieval fair.
This cake helped surprise our birthday boy — all he knew was that his family would be spending his birthday at the medieval festival. Here in Gainesville, the medieval fair is an annual tradition attracting a lot of families.
We love surprises — and love birthday cakes. =) Bringing this cake to the fairgrounds certainly made for one of our more unusual deliveries… we’ll just say the experience was a little unique. It’s not everyday we get escorted by knights.
All of our custom birthday cakes have their unique challenges. For this cake, the challenge was Harley’s unique jester style. Making her double pointed, motley style hat was a must — how can you have a Harley Quinn cake without the hat?
The top of this birthday cake featured Harley Quinn, the bottom kept the colors and design, using a striped, motley look and feel.
Birthday cakes, especially when clients allow for some creativity, certainly help bring the celebration.
