Custom Cake Topper

Madeline Trait

I love having new ideas of my own as well as my clients giving me ideas as well. Collaboration is critical to good design. On that note, see a custom cake topper I created for a client. Their request was to do something Hawaiian theme and with coral colors. This is what we came up with, and it's a beauty!

The saying is "Ku'u Lei Mau Loa" which means My beloved forever.

Flowers and Pattern

Madeline Trait

My design process is not always a clear path from a to b. Rather my ideas come from many different places and at different times in the design process. For instance there are times when I have just the beginning of an idea and am not sure where it's going to lead, so I just let it be and know that it will come back at the appropriate time. To demonstrate this, the images above show my flower patterns against a colorful and bold backdrop. The idea is combining vivid textures, patterns and colors with the softer organic shapes of flowers. Not sure where it's going to lead but I like the we'll see what happens.
