The Drake Cake, September 2013

September 24, 2013 marked the third studio album by Canadian recording artist and international star, Drake. Titled, Nothing Was The Same,  the album cover features a portrait of Drake as a baby and how he looks now. Some of Drake's closest entourage were gathering at a restaurant in Toronto to celebrate the launch of the new album and I was asked to create a cake to surprise him with. 

The cake design included hand painted portraits against a blue sky with clouds, all done in edible paint. The portraits alone took about 8 hours but the effort was worth it! When I presented the cake to Drake in person, he was really surprised. He looked at every detail of the cake - the portraits and the speakers around the sides of the bottom tier. He was very appreciative of all the effort. Drake was kind of shy and very appreciative of all the effort. I got a picture of Drake and I while we were sipping on coconut cocktails!
