The following is an email from a potential client. I have never had such a specific order request that I don't even know where to begin. First of all, I will be on vacay from June 15-20th. My June is pretty open right now, so I can get the figures done before-hand and even the baking, for that matter. I can't wait to sit down and price this baby out....although I'm sure I will get the "Oh, I didn't realize that it would be that much..." response. I'm thinking at least $15-20/figure and she wants 7!!!!! I will have to ask her how many she needs to serve first to see how big this thing will need to be. And with all the detail of the expressions she wants, they will have to be decent size figures. Oy...any thoughts?
I am throwing a surprise birthday party for my son on June 22, 2013. I have an awesome idea for his birthday cake. It's a lot easier to describe it over the phone than in a message. But my idea involves a football field cake with some sculpted football players and a couple cheerleaders. Can you tell me if you're available for that date?
Here's my idea for his cake.
I wanted a football field cake. My son plays defense and I wanted him reaching for the QB with like a "GRRRR" look on his face and the QB with his eyes shut and knees bent inward handing over the ball..like he's scared. And my son would be in mid stride with his foot looking like he stuffed another opposing players head in the turf with his body sticking out. Or possibly have my son's shoe print on the opposing players face and kind of flattened into the turf. Also, one other of my son's teammates chasing after another opposing player with the opposing player running away looking scared. I was thinking 5 football players. Plus I wanted two cheerleaders off of the cake holding up a banner like what football players run through that says Happy 18th Birthday Andrew.
I wanted the players to have their numbers with the uniforms closely matching their uniforms as well as the opposing players uniforms. I know the cheerleaders uniforms would be extremely difficult to match totally but close would be great. I would like one cheerleader to resemble his cheerleader. I have photos I can email if you are available for this date.
