A Lion King Party

This is a long overdue post from early August! So sorry everyone, but I've been experiencing a huge overflow with cake orders and commitments over the last couple of months. It's been seriously overwhelming and I'm struggling to keep up with all the orders, emails, instragramming, FB'ing, photos, and so forth. I'll soon need an assistant! Anyone interested?

Anyway, getting back to the post -  a Lion King party for a boy named, Oliver, who was turning one. What an incredible party this little boy had! The parents really went out of their way for their precious one. I teamed up with the uber talented team from Mint Events once again. The girls, Adeline and Nicole never fail to impress me with their attention to detail and crazy ideas!! I love their work! Here are the photos from the event, supplied by the girls. Thanks Adeline! x

Who on earth thinks of putting footprints in the lift?!
Fun sunnies to add colour to the guests :)

When it came to the cake, the client already had an idea of what she wanted. She provided me with the photo of an existing cake, but I could add my own personal touches to it. The original design came from Peggy Does Cake, and it was a 2 tiered cake. I was to make a 3 tiered cake, and to keep within the theme of the jungle safari/Lion King theme.

So here's my cake :

I hand painted the zebra stripes on the bottom, as well as the silhouette of the animals from one of the scenes from the movie. The sunset is also hand painted.

Can't wait to work with them again on the next event :)
