The Rock School, one of Gainesville, Florida’s finest private schools, finishes the school year in style. With a production that was simply amazing, being a part of The Rock School Awards Show was truly an honor. For this event, our bakery produced an awards themed red carpet cake feeding the more than 400 guests.
It all started with a sketch and a concept:
In keeping with the awards show theme, our idea was to have a red carpet, film reels (with pictures of the students), and the school’s mascot (lion) dressed in a tuxedo.
This was a VERY BIG cake. The center of the cake held a 5 tier cake with more cake extending to the sides. The sides formed a red carpet, complete with ruffles, stars, and gold rope. The set-up process did take some time…
We decided to add the stars once we arrived to the venue; transporting them in a styrofoam base. Tip of the day… styrofoam is a great help in transporting those little delicate cake decorations.
Tip number two: Yes, setting up cakes can be stressful — but there’s always time to smile. A smiling Yeni makes for a happy team at Dream Day Cakes®. =)
We had been calling the mascot “Rocky” during the week. Later we’d find out he doesn’t have an official name (we’re pushing very hard for Rocky).
Rocky looked great… but Yeni thought something was missing. This is when she brought out her most awesome tool in her possession:
The step allows our cake artist to reach new heights — literally. With the tool in place, she was able to add that last touch.
Not the biggest change… but sometimes it’s the littlest details.
Here’s more of pictures of the cake:
We loved working on this cake and helping some amazing students celebrate the end of their school year. Working with The Rock School was fantastic. Their professionalism and commitment to excellence shows in everything they do– including the behavior of the students. We were truly honored to create this awards show cake for their annual Gainesville event.
