One thing I love about making cakes is the diversity of my orders, from beautiful, traditional wedding cakes to fun, spunky birthday cakes. This order is definitely one of those one in a million cakes. When Pam asked me to make a cake for her 23-year-old son, she said that she wanted something unique just for him; something techi or involving sciences. “He’s a microbiology major, what else would you expect,” said she.
So, I browsed the oh-so-vast google for microbiology ideas. Only a few items popped up on the image pages, that is hexagon formulas and braided molecular structures. As you can see, I incorporated the molecules in the borders and the numbers and the hexagons in handpainted patterns around the bottom tier.
