Faboo Cake Happenings

Welcome to the Faboo Blog!

Hello Faboo Friends,
 
We had a blast in Tulsa at the Oklahoma Sugar Art Show, but we are happy to be home and back to caking!
 
The sugar artists who entered cakes into the competition were world class designers. We took over 500 pictures :) Some of the designs took 6 months or more to execute. Wow!
 
Next year we hope to enter a multi-tiered cake into the show & will stat planning our design in the next few weeks. Fingers crossed!
 
This is our first & only blog, so we hope you will us give lots of feedback & have lots of patience while we figure out the blogging world. lol! :)
 
Often, we have very special cakes with unique stories that touch our hearts or funny bones.
 
We would like to share some of those cake stories with you here on our blog  & invite you into the Faboo Studio to meet our Faboo Friends.
 
Our Faboo Blog will be a like a peek behind the Faboo scene to see how a cake is designed & watch it come to life and become the centerpiece of a Faboo Celebration.
 
Meet Chef Blake who turned 10 in September.....................
 
 
 
 
Blake is a Faboo Friend who loves to create cakes & even makes his own fondant!
 
Blake & his Mom, Kyra contacted us to talk about his design ideas for a 10th Birthday "Call of Duty" Cake.
 
Being the girly girls we are, we jumped on Google right away to find out exactly what 'Call of Duty' was all about.... lol!
 
Call of Duty is a video game that takes place during different wars & Blake is a fan of the WWII version.
 
 
Expert knowledge in hand from the internet we excitedly headed to our design meeting with Blake & Kyra.
 
Ideas were dancing in our heads & we hoped that Blake would have a few of his own to mix in.
 
Little did we know that Blake was a cake designer himself & had very specific and fun design ideas ready for his special cake!
 
In our design session Blake said he really wanted a helmet & a potato masher grenade & he liked the desert camo colors best.
 
We took all the ideas back to our studio & did a design sketch of the elements we would have in the final cake. Here is how our designs start out:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The cake went up on the calendar & we started planning all the WWII design elements.
 
First up, a quick trip back to Googleland to figure out what a potato masher grenade is & what it looks like....a little bit more research on WWII & the weapons used.......some more research on WWII & Call of Duty.....almost ready to go!
 
But we needed a little expert help & knew just the person to ask.
 
Blake could definitely help us complete an important part of the cake & make it perfectly Faboo!!
 
We dropped a mission in his mailbox & crossed our fingers:
 
 
For chef blake’s eyes only:
 
Should you choose to accept this mission it must be completed by September 23rd & must be confidential.
If you agree please read on………..

Mission:
 
Sculpt one pineapple grenade using the ingredients in this package along with your special marshmallow fondant recipe.
 
The grenade will be used to complete a very secret & special cake design.
 
The grenade must be no bigger than 5” & no smaller than 2”
 
Keep your grenade safe & faboo cakes will pick it up on September 23rd.
 The design is up to you!
 
Please email us at faboocakes@faboocakes.com when your grenade is ready.
Our cake mission depends on your success!
Your Faboo Friends,
Kristina & Kimberly
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Blake accepted the mission & completed his sugar grenade perfectly!
 
We sculpted a machine gun out of chocolate, bullets, a bunker to hide behind & a camo helmet cake that hid a sweet suprise inside.
 
The cake was a yummy french vanilla that we colored to match the desert camo & when you cut a slice the cake was camo too!
 
Whew!!! This was a true adventure. We learned a ton about WWII, video games & made new Faboo Friends along the way........We can't wait to see Blake on a TV Cake Challenge someday!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here is a look at the final cake that Blake had on his birthday!
