This is a tale of how creative, fun celebrating can come out of the blue - every day!
A few weeks ago, I was meeting with Nicole, the owner of this amazing cupcake boutique in downtown Franklin, Tennessee - Naticakes. We were bursting with ideas of parties and cupcakes and themes and charities when in walked a lady named Claudia.
Claudia was looking for a creative way to make a University of Tennessee logo on top of a cheesecake. This cheesecake was to be a gift for a teacher friend and while she wanted it to be special, she had no idea how to re-create the logo.
Here's the logo - a simple letter T.
Orange slice candy was perfect because it has one side that is almost straight and one side with a curve. These two elements are the same ones that primarily make up the UT logo. AND, it was orange - UT's primary school color. I went back to my computer and drew out how to lay out the candies to create the logo and sent it off to Claudia.
A few days later, I received an email from Claudia along with this picture of her finished cheesecake!
See how she used the sides of the candies?
Claudia was thrilled to have a creative finished cheesecake to give to her friend and I was happy to have been there to meet her and come up with something fun!
Sidenote: If you're ever in downtown Franklin, Tennessee - right outside of Nashville - pop into Naticakes and tell them Everyday Celebrating sent you. The cupcakes are amazing! See?
