Next up for our special, Christmas edition blog month is this SERIOUSLY amazing tiered cake that brings to life the characters from the much loved Christmas TV movie classic, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer!
The INSANE likeness of the characters, and the rest of this fantasticness, was hand crafted by the one and only Brenda Walton of Sugar High Inc.
I could go on and ON about Brenda.
But I won’t, ’cause you’ve got only so much patience for my ramblings, I know, and there’s a CHANCE I’ve already used up a good portion of that patience recently and you’re running on low… so I will simply say this,
Brenda is a diamond in the rough.
She’s one of those people who light up your insides when you’re with them ’cause she’s got so much good in her, it can’t help but seep into you, too.
She draws you in (not even knowing she’s doing it), you intrinsically trust her (not even knowing YOU’RE doing it) and you want to tell her everything. From your deepest secrets to what you had for breakfast that morning.
And you never want her to leave.
You think I’m being dramatic, but I’m not. It’s really real… and that’s all on TOP of her incredible talent.
Besides… drama? Me? (whispers) Never.
Brenda, needless to say, is a friend of mine (and not just ’cause Facebook tells me she is), and lovingly agreed to contribute a Christmas design and some work in progress pictures to the blog when I asked.
And when I first saw what she created, I literally did one of those audible intakes of breath.
‘Cause it’s so great.
And the characters are so perfect.
And I loved the TV movie as a kid.
And I still love it as an adult.
And Brenda, clearly, has a little bit o’ magic in her brain and her hands.
(SOOO should be shoved into my dark little closet alongside my other infuriatingly talented friends. But I digress…)
I love this cake.
I love Brenda.
And I love Christmas.
(Told you before… I’ve gone completely soft. Totally lost my edge. Fortunately, I’m coming to grips with my edgeless, mush.)
Merry Christmas everyone!

Guaranteed to at least make you feel good about yourself!

Here’s just a quick, tiny sneak peek at the steps Brenda took to create her cake…
