Bow Tie Themed Birthday

My friend Esmond from work celebrated his birthday in August.  His lovely wife, Ju, knowing how well liked he is around the office, contacted me about making a cake for him to be shared by all his peers.

After hearing some of Ju’s ideas for a cake theme, I decided to go with a bow tie theme in honour of the times Esmond showed up to work with his.

 2 layer vanilla cake with strawberry filling


My attempt at a fondant bow-tie.  Blue, of course.


Note: Esmond does not wear a blue polka dot bow tie, he has much better style.

Now, this cake was a surprise for Esmond and I needed the help of a few in the office to distract him so we could quickly “decorate”, gather everyone to his desk and have the cake waiting.  This was the reaction as he made his way back from the other side of the office.

I’d say he was surprised!

Happy Birthday Es!! =)
