When you think about it, you truly realize how amazing it is to celebrate an 80th birthday. Recently, our cake bakery in Gainesville, Florida was honored to help celebrate this octogenarian event with a custom 80th birthday scrapbook cake.
For this birthday cake, we created a two-tiered, custom fondant specialty cake. The cake was to feature memories for the birthday boy, orange and blue colors, and showcase the milestone age achievement.
We wanted clean lines, a distinct look, and a modern feel to classic photos. For the photos themselves, we used an edible ink printer with fondant touches to give the photos that classic photo album look and feel.
Every decoration on this cake was completely edible.
For the cake topper, Yeni created an edible 80 from fondant and truly made it shine.
The pictures, printed with an edible ink printer, were provided from the family.
Yeni gave the fondant photo holders an amazing texture to make it look as if it were truly leather.
Our job allows us to help our clients celebrate amazing events — such as this 80th birthday. We loved mixing fondant textures and printing photos to create this special, 80th birthday scrapbook cake.
