I was so thrilled when I was asked to make this cake. The client had an idea of what she wanted and sent me several pictures of which she wanted separate elements from. I really don't know much about Pokemon, but when I have a cake to do of something that is very popular and I don't know much about it, I do some research. Did you know that there's a gazillion Pokemon characters? I feel bad for the parents that would have to purchase all of these for their little one's collection. It should truly cost a fortune! lol! Anyway, I made the little characters out of MMF with Tylose. The client wanted the child's name in Pokemon font, so I downloaded the font and created it then in photoshop to give it a little twist and cut letters out in yellow and then in a deeper blue. I was happy with the result. The ball is made out of yummy Leelee's specialty vanilla with dulce de leche filling as well as the bottom cake, I also made cookies for this client. Her hubby came to pick up the cake and he looked really worried. I asked if he liked the cake and he said: "OH, yes, I'm just concerned that it will arrive in one piece". I assured hime that if he drove safely there would not be any problems. He smiled and left.
