It is always an honor to make cakes for celebrations – weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, baby showers, graduations, promotions, etc etc… We at Eloise’s Pastries delight in creating beautiful and delicious cakes that put the exclamation mark on the celebration.
To us, all cakes are special, but this one was exceptionally so, as AJ is not only a little boy he is a warrior. AJ has been waging a very difficult and uphill health battle, which needed to be celebrated. Icing Smiles contacted us to put the exclamation on his wonderful birthday surprise.
AJ and his parents were invited to come and sample some cake, though AJ understood it to be simply a tasting for a cake his parents might want for a dinner party. After AJ gave his opinion, the stage was set and the bakery team could get to work!
What fun we had! Talking with AJ’s mom we found out some of his favorite Disney characters and then learned of another favorite which just had to be included. The result is below. Starting with The Mouse himself and his faithful dog Pluto, we moved on to the ultimate hots of Lumiere and Cogsworth to help welcome AJ and his family to Disney World and some of its many parks – as the cake was the announcement that they were going there!
We then traveled to the Disney Studios and brought Lightening McQueen and Tow-Mater from the big screen to edible life!
Finally we finished with Thomas the Tank Engine and his friend Percy, who though not Disney creations, are also very important to AJ.
The bakery had a great fun creating this magical cake and being allowed the privilege tof not only wishing AJ happy birthday, but also of inviting his surprise trip to Disney World with his family.
Thank you again to Icing Smiles, AJ and his family for letting us be a part of such very special celebration! AJ – have fun at Disney World!
