A Partially Inspired Cake

dinosaur-coffee

Here’s a small world story for your Thursday. A couple of weeks ago I was meeting my friend Julie at Dinosaur Coffee in Silverlake. Upon arriving, I was drawn to a very beautiful wall hanging / neon display they had in the back. I took a seat next to it and admired the installation – I really loved the textures in the piece. Julie arrived a minute or two later so my mind was refocused on catching up and I forgot to take photos of it before I left. I had been planning on decorating a cake later that day just-for-fun, so once I was back home with those beautiful textures still on my mind I let that slightly guide me. I wasn’t attempting to recreate it in any way and definitely wasn’t trying to decorate a wall hanging / macrame cake. I posted the cake on my Instagram and minutes later the talented ladies of Hello Gem Events commented that it reminded them of their “Beast installation” at Dinosaur Coffee. How crazy is that?! Of course the Hello Gem girls made that beautiful wall installation I had seen earlier that day…they also designed and produced THIS amazing wedding I did desserts for last year. Those ladies make such amazing work! Anywho, thought I would share photos of the cake and of that beautiful installation since they’re both easy on the eyes!
