Yesterday I was lucky enough to have one of those days that really make it all worth while. While this joint collaboration from Ritzi and Naoko was certainly my pick of the week, there is never any guarantee the client is going to feel the same way, and believe me; I have had some very awkward moments. To my great relief yesterday morning, the tears that sprung to this client’s eye upon seeing her cake were those of joy, and not disappointment! It's easy for us to forget sometimes just how much a cake can mean to a person, and I like to think this one will live on through cherished photos in the family album. Most importantly, I hope it ends up the way all good first birthday and christening cakes should - completely smeared all over the face of this special little person!
