United Airlines Bespoke Cake Design

A few weeks ago I got an email in my mailbox that made me look twice. It was from the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority in Washington D.C. Most people know that my company lives in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. So my first reply was: "I hope your cake request is for a delivery in The Netherlands?".

Don't get me wrong. I'd love (absolutely love) to deliver or make a cake overseas, if your budget allows. But I didn't think that was the case here. And I was right. The cake was meant for the United Airlines Office at Schiphol Airport here in the Netherlands. 

I was still flabergasted! Just amazing that such a big company found me all the way here in this tiny country. So I just had to design them an amazing cake! They had 2 request:

  1. the logo needs to be incorparated
  2. and a happy birthday message

I let the brand do the work and came up with company designs for them.

The main idea was to make a cake with their symbol incorporated and a two dimensional (2D) airplane. They went for the second cake design. 

It was my honest intention to make like photographs & short vid's showing the process, but I lacked time. So you'll just have to do with finished results.

Have an amazing day :-)
