Japan Bound

Kim Carlson, the Director of Marketing at Pittsburg State University, ordered a special cake for her niece Carmen who is making the move to Okinawa, Japan with her husband Schan for two years. Kim wanted a memorable fair well cake for the couple. So, with some suggestions and inspiration from Kim this is what we came up with:

The image on the top of the cake came from the Manhole covers in Japan. We created a stencil and hang painted the image onto Red Marshmallow Fondant. There were Japanese symbols that stood for Travel on the front and their names and the date on the back of the cake.

We really enjoyed creating this cake! Kim said, "The cake was a HUGE hit! Besides looking fabulous, it tasted even more fabulous. My husband loved it and he is not a cake person!"

Thank you Kim!
