Tugboat Cake

4 Jul

I love making sculpted cakes like this Tugboat Cake I made last weekend. I like the fact that it started out as an ordinary square pound cake. But after the right amount of shaving here and there, adding little details and the good color combination, it became a wonderful not-so-ordinary-creation.

It’s always exciting to see the end result of something that you worked hard for. It’s not easy sculpting a cake knowing that one wrong slice can alter the whole look of the cake. And if you do make a wrong cut, all you can do is start all over again. This was what was going on inside my head while making this Tugboat Cake. I couldn’t make a mistake because I had a lot of orders due the same day. I knew that if I made a mistake, I wouldn’t meet my deadlines and clients would get disappointed.

Sometimes my cakes speak to me, reminding me of truths I learned before. This cake was a reminder that God is also shaping me (which includes shaving off A LOT of things, adding beautiful thing after beautiful thing). I don’t know what exactly He’s shaping me to be but I know that I can trust the Master Sculptor.
