Speaking of Alex Franco, we met up with him last, last week to discuss Allie's Sesame Street-themed five-layered all-edible cake. Since Alex doesn't really customize his cakes according to a specific cartoon character (he's not into gumpaste stuff, which allows for more customizations), we've decided to have it tailor-fit according to the Sesame Street muppet colors instead.
|Ribbon samples I gave to Alex for color reference.|
The blue is for Cookie Monster, the red is for Elmo, the yellow is for Big Bird, the orange is for Ernie (sorry, we can't have another yellow for Bert), and the green is for Oscar the Grouch. :)
I've also finally decided on which supplier to book for Allie's invites, giving up on finding a reliable one that makes quality pop-up invites (board, not photo, paper, and laser printing). Most of the suppliers who have sent their samples are quite disappointing; the finished products looked like children's projects from school. So I thought about ways of jazzing up plain, colored invites - I'll post more updates on that later.
So, how do you like my idea for Allie's cake? :)
