Ivone and I created a cake to celebrate my sister (Jo) and niece's birthday. We had to come up with a scene that captured a special moment for an aunt and a niece. We thought it would be so sweet if we had Jo reading to Thea on a couch. The couch and the automan was to resemble the same one in Thea's home. It was our very first time making a couch and it's amazing what the anticipation of making edible furniture can do to two cake lovers! We were giddy for days just thinking about it!
As you can see, we pulled it off! We gave Thea a pigtail with a pink bow because her mommy always gives her the craziest hair! We had a purple throw draped over the chocolate automan in case the bears need to get cozy. Jo has always loved reading so we added more books around their "living room."
So much fun making this cake. I think it probably took Ivone and I about 5+ hours to make this cake. That's only decorating...baking time not included. It really is a labor of love. But so worth it!
