Sweet Abby is the 8-year old daughter of two of my favorite students, Kim and Brady! Kim contacted me about Abby's gymnastics-themed party, and I was excited to try my hand at creating a figure for the topper. Abby was in on every stage of the planning. I sent Kim and Abby pictures of cakes to look at. From those, Abby decided on the colors she wanted.
We decided that a gymnast doing a handstand would be perfect! WRONG! After about 4 tries of getting the balance just right, I called them, "Can we do a balance beam?" Abby and Kim thought the balance would be fine and would be in line with the theme. This topper is what I came up with and Abby seemed perfectly delighted with it.
The cake was butter-almond, which is becoming the most requested flavor, with almond buttercream and marshmallow fondant.
I think it is amazing how closely the colors of the plates match the cake! I know Abby and her friends had a great time celebrating Saturday afternoon!
