Nursery Rhyme 1st Birthday Cake

Rebecca Sutterby from Sugar Creations, shared a few thoughts with us about her creation…

“The customer asked for a Nursery Rhyme theme and let me run wild with it.  I LOVE it when they give me creative freedom!  For the Humpty Dumpty figure and the cow, I covered Rice Krispie treats with modeling chocolate and then added gumpaste details.  In the other figures, I used large gumballs inside the heads and bodies.  They take up space so that you use less gumpaste or fondant and they also make the figure lighter.  I also did a color wash over the brick to give it some depth.  I mixed ivory airbrush color with vodka & painted it on.  Then I went back with vodka on a paper towel and “erased” the paint from the high points of the brick.”

Incredible, isn’t it?  I just had to highlight all of the different elements to this design… I didn’t want you to miss any of it!  This cake is so impressive at first glance and then when you really start looking…. it’s even more amazing!  I absolutely love how Rebecca seamlessly worked all of these nursery rhymes into one design.  Not to mention that the base of the cake is a 3D book.  Can it get much cuter?

A huge thank you to Rebecca Sutterby of Sugar Creations for sharing her awe-inspiring Nursery Rhymes Cake with us today!  It is a delight for both the young and the young at heart!

    That’s beautiful! There’s even buttons on Humpty Dumpty’s shirt! The amount of details makes this well designed cake to a different level.

    I am in search of nursery rhyme/storybook cake ideas for a cake for my Daughter who is about to leave her office to have a baby. The cake will be part of her leaving morning tea. This is just the sort of thing I had in mind to have the nursery characters on/ around the cake.
    I am curious where does the mouse ran up the clock fit into the main cake?
