james and the giant peach was one of my favorite books growing up, along with many other roald dahl classics (hello, the twits, anyone??). i was so excited when miah contacted me about her daughter penelope’s fifth birthday cake…they had just finished reading james and the giant peach together. adorable.
this cake is also a fantastic example of what can be done with paper. the cake itself is quite simple, but the paper birds on gold wire make it sing.
take a peach:
add some birds:
and i couldn’t resist a cloud background:
enjoy penelope and family – happy birthday!
