When the lovely Kristi came into town in July, Vale wanted to give her a special welcome so she showed her luvin' via Sweet Kiera Cake. She wanted something "San Francisco-y". I got an idea to use Red Vines (the West Coast Twizzler?) to construct a simple model of the Golden Gate bridge on top of the cake. I wanted to keep the design of the cake really simple and clean. Once I saw the golden gate bridge on top of the white cake, I was inspired by the "Big Day" wedding invitation suite, which I adore, by "Hello! Lucky". I decided to add on some mint green ribbon around the cake.
The final touch -- an afterthought -- was the "Welcome, Kristi!" kraft paper pendant flag.
The vanilla-vanilla cake was a hit with the kids. Kristi's youngest son Cole asked me for the recipe and Oscar ate a whole fondant fog bank. Bingo!
Poor Lucy hates cake but we made her eat it. Siiiike. "Girlfriend" loves it.
San Francisco loves Kristi!
and Thanks Vale for ordering the cake! :)
