My colleague had kidney stones, so I made him a kidney cake. Because you can’t eat a get well soon card.
It is a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting that I died red. I put chocolate stones inside it to represent the kidney stones.
One of the husband’s colleague broke his arm while riding his bike. My husband’s response to this news was “It helps to keep the bike upright”.
In the tradition of cheering up acquaintances with broken limbs, I made him a broken arm in a cast cake. Yes, the fingers do like like toes. I sent some food-writing pens (this brand is horrible, BTW and will not write on fondant) with the cake, so everyone could sign it.
I did sneak some bones and raspberry jam and candy bones in there too.
My very sweet colleague broke her foot, so I had a brainwave to make her a cake. I looked for inspiration on the Interwebs, and found this at Cake Central. I tried to re-create it and failed. This was a second attempt at a fondant covered cake, and first time at coloring the fondant.
I was sneaky and stuck some “bones” in the foot. It’s anatomically correct – the tibia and fibula.
Update: Here is what the cake looked after it was cutup:
I like how the bones just fell out it 😀
