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.




Norie’s Kitchen – Harry Potter Cake

Hello there Mr. Potter…Excited about my first Harry Potter cake. My husband has a complete set of hardcover of Harry Potter books and usually reserves way ahead of time before a new book comes out. So I consulted him on the design of this cake. I made cake too look like a book. Then I added several iconic objects in the book like the Sorting Hat, Harry’s glasses, a Gryffindor scarf, and a Snitch. I also made a little Harry Potter on top of the cake. Then I used a Harry Potter font to write “Happy Birthday Luke” on the cake.

Norie’s Kitchen – Cat in the Hat Cake

Leave a comment

When I was learning how to read, I read a book that was about Pepe,his sister Pilar and their dog which I can’t remember the name. It was either Bantay or Tagpi. They usually play with their ball.

Unlike today kids have a lot to choose from and my son practiced reading on Dr.Seuss books like the Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham. That’s why I was thrilled when Samuel’s mom asked me to make a Cat in the Hat cake.

For this cake, I designed it to look like the Cat’s Hat. For the cake toppers, I included the Cat in the Hat,Thing 1 and 2,and the fish in the pot. I added a few details found in the story like the kites on the cake as well.

For the cupcakes, I referred to the story for the items to put on them.

“With a cup and a cake on the top of my hat! I can hold up TWO books! I can hold up the fish! And a little toy ship! And some milk on a dish! And look! I can hop up and down on the ball! But that is not all! Oh, no. That is not all… “Look at me! Look at me! Look at me NOW! It is fun to have fun But you have to know how. I can hold up the cup And the milk and the cake! I can hold up these books! And the fish on a rake! I can hold the toy ship And a little toy man! And look! With my tail I can hold a red fan! I can fan with the fan As I hop on the ball! But that is not all. Oh, no. That is not all…”

I even played with my son if he could find the items mentioned in his book among the cupcake toppers.

I really had a blast making this cake.=D
