The youngest member of my new family is a cute, smart and talented girl named Samantha – who also happens to be the daughter of one of the other employees. Samantha is big into Cosplay (she makes her own costumes!) with her favourite show being Stargate. It’s really nice to have someone at work that I can geek out with!
As soon as her Father saw some of my cake work, he requested a Stargate cake for Samantha’s birthday – months in advance. I was quite nervous about the project because I knew what a great eye for detail Samantha has, and I know how accurate she and particular she is with her costumes. This Cake Had To Be Right!
After much crispy rice treats, fondant and airbrushing, I think the cake turned out very well. My biggest regret is not being able to see Sammy’s face when her Dad brought it home to her – since she’s on her summer hours now and doesn’t come in every day.
