Her first order was this red crystal set;
She was so pleased with her initial order that she placed another order shortly after the first.
A few days after she placed her second order she sent me this picture asking me if I liked the necklace
My first thought was, OMG....... I hope this lady isn't going to wear this piece :).
I struggled to find the words to convey my thoughts as politely as I possibly could, seeing that she was a paying client. I responded to her message stating that I did like the set but not the accessories used at the side of the necklace.
She then told me that the necklace was made from sugar and was a cake top for a cake she just finished making for a client. We had a good laugh and starting talking about her hobby/business 'Bubebakes'. As with most small businesses Bubebakes had started as a hobby, and even though she claims it still is, with close to15K likes on Facebook I beg to differ.
After going through a couple of pictures she sent to me, I came across this particular cake and totally flipped
One of my clients based in the U.S. was looking to have a cake made with a similar texture to the above for her upcoming 50th birthday. Unfortunately her bakers had tried but were unable to replicate the texture. I have a picture of what they initially did, and to say it was a disaster is an understatement. However, in order not to upset some people I will not put the picture up. Gbubemi was kind enough to pass on the trade secrets for that particular texture which I then passed on to my other client who was quite happy with the information provided.
Here are a few more cakes of Gbubemi that I love.
