A few weeks ago, a returning customer asked me to make a Rio themed cake for a little boy's birthday. I love making cakes for this client, as he gives me complete freedom over the design. So with no special requirements for the cake, I thought I'd make it as crazy as I wanted!
I decorated a simple round cake as a tree trunk, and made Blu's body out of rice crispy treats. With a whole lot of help from my boyfriend, we covered him in gumpaste feathers, and this crazy little birdie came to life! His sugar wing span was over 40cm!
