This is my first time to make a Shopkins Cake and since both of my kids are boys I wasn’t aware of these toys. I had to research them and I found them cute and I would totally understand why Shopkins is popular.

When I was just starting out making cakes, the popular game then was Plants vs Zombies. I think I made more than 20 versions of Plants vs Zombies cake. So it was refreshing when I was asked to make another PvZ cake. This time it’s based on the PvZ2: Beach Wave and the zombies looks like they’re having a 60’s beach party, with zombies that are surfing and female zombies with big hair. All of them look cute in their own ways except for thebeach version of the gargantuar which is still a scary thing.

My family and I are Feast attendees. We belong to the Feast Dasmarinas community and we celebrated our Feast builder’s birthday last week. This is the cake I made for Bro. Boggs and the story behind the design.
I used books as the theme for his cake since as a builder he has to learn new things to make him more effective in serving God. For the title of the books he is standing on, I used the different roles in life. The bottom book pertains to his role as a leader of the two Feasts (Bacoor and Dasmarinas) aside from being a leader in his career. The second book refers to his role as family man. There is also a reason why he is standing on these books.
The third book where the cake topper is leaning on is the Holy Bible. I positioned it this way because of what the leaning position represents. When you lean on something, that something provides you stability and strength. In this case he is leaning on the Bible, God’s word. This means that God’s word is his source of stability and strength so he can handle the challenges of being a leader to us and a loving father and husband. This is the reason he is standing on the other books.

It’s time to play the music
It’s time to light the lights
It’s time to meet the Muppets on the Muppet Show tonight
It’s time to put on make up
It’s time to dress up right
It’s time to raise the curtain on the Muppet Show tonight
When I was a kid and I heard this song playing, I would run in front of the TV and watch one of my favorite shows then, “The Muppet Show”.
So I was excited to make a cake based on the characters of the show. The top layer of the cake is based on the movie “Muppets take Manhattan” where Ms. Piggy and Kermit were wed. The bottom 2 layers are the other muppets.
