I made this cake for a friend over the weekend. If you had to guess,how old do you think Bethany is? What birthday was she celebrating?
Would you guess…
If you were guessing solely on this cake design, I bet you would aim a lot lower. And if you saw Bethany in person, you’d guess even lower than that. I’m pretty sure she still gets carded when she buys lottery tickets. Lucky lady!
Bethany, also known as “Queen B” is a phenomenal DJ, part of the Orchard Lounge collective. We met 12 years ago and bonded over a mutual love music. A couple of years later, she talked me into break dancing lessons. Yes, they teach that. Or at least, they used to teach it before anything and everything could be learned via YouTube. I was pretty terrible at it, but Bethany could windmill with the best of ‘em. She probably still can.
City-gritty AND ultra-feminine is tough to pull off. but it’s like Bethany invented it. This street art-inspired, buttercream-iced cake is an homage to her unique style and the way she lives her life, in full color and with a little bit of sparkle.
