Nine Inch Nails cake – light show stage

I love getting a challenge, my Cousin called and asked if I could make a Nine Inch Nails cake for her husband’s birthday this year.  She said, “do whatever” which is fun, but hard, too much possibilities. so I asked her some questions to get the ideas flowing and she started talking about the “Light Show” concert they attended this year and how great the stage was.

So I started looking up images from the concert. Concert pictures are TOUGH because it’s dark, often foggy, or super bright!  GAH! BUT it seemed like they had a curved backdrop that’s covered in lights and curved light panel that moves up and down.  So I decided to do a stage.

Trampoline Park Party Cake

I was going through old pictures the other day and I found this cake I made 18 months ago but never shared!  GAH!  I hate it when I forget to share stuff, by the time I do it tends to be out of date.  But my boys (Mr. Topsy Turvy and Computer boy) are celebrating their joint birthday tomorrow at a trampoline park so it seemed to be the perfect time to break it out!

A local Trampoline park (called Hang Time, thus the lettering, oh and that’s their logo of a jumping figure up top)  invited a bunch of us bloggers out for a family day.  We all had a blast, but it is kind of far away from our house so we never got a chance to go back.  Then out of the blue Computer boy started talking about it!  SO party at the Trampoline park it is!

We started by looking at what was already out there (pinterest) and there was a lot of the same cake repeated over and over again and Jyl wanted something never done before!  I LOOOOOVE that!  So she told me her son’s favorite pieces in minecraft and two of those, the pig and watermelon, became the cake!

Tardis Cake Tutorial

My husband’s family loves Doctor Who so when my niece turned 14 last month she asked for a Tardis cake.  As I was working on my cake I came across this already amazing tutorial from Artisan Cake Company (if I still lived in Portland I’d go work with her, she does AMAZING work) and since our cakes were so similar I’m only sharing what I did differently rather than the full tutorial here.
