This was a retirement cake for a lady that I worked with for several years whose life was built around her pets, enjoying teas and many other things.
We wanted to incorporate a lot of the things that she would finally have time to do during her retirement and made her pets, reading, drinking wine in the bubble tub as well as her love for teas. She was also an avid fan of Kansas State University.
There are 2 round cakes for the base, 2 smaller rounds for the next level and an oval cake for the tub, all covered in fondant with a paper lace divider between them to give the cake a bit of an elegant look. All items are made of prepackaged fondant by hand including all of the many bubbles, then some bubbles were brushed over with blue sparkle glitter. There is a cosmetic bag, some nail polish, a towel on the side for when she is done, her pets (dog has a bubble on his nose) and a book and a bottle and poured glass of wine. Fun to create.
