I surprised my uncle with this cake. He came into town for my mom's birthday but I made him a cake too since his was only 5 days before my mom's. The day before he came to Orange County, he completed a 206 mile bike ride from Seattle to Portland. Honestly I didn't know he was doing that ride until after I designed this cake but I had this cake topper created because I knew he was training for one.
I have really enjoyed making the more modern looking cakes. This cake style was inspired by one of my cake idol accounts, Don't Tell Charles. Yes they look simple but I like how clean the lines are and the architectural feel of it. It takes a lot of precision and design to create something so clean and simple. I'm hoping to someday have all my designs follow more of this style, but until then, I am enjoying learning and perfecting different techniques.
