Edible Caricatures

I am sure when that you hear the words Edible Caricature the first thing that you think is:
“What on earth is all this about?”
It all started when I was on holiday with my family and, as you do, came across a caricaturist who had set up a small stand to catch the evening tourist trade. This caricaturist was very good and a crowd soon gathered to see what was going on and there was lots of laughter and oooh’s and wow’s.

In a eureka moment it came to me that if we could harness this excitement into one of our products we would be onto a winning formula and so the Edible Caricature was born. There were a few challenges along the way, first of all we had to find the best caricaturist (who was able to draw fantastic images from photos), then we had to find a way of getting suitable images of the subject to the artist (this was in the early days of email), then the caricature back to us, we then had to make an edible version and get this to the customer all in a timely fashion. Of course when it is needed for an important celebration, being late is not an option!

It took a while but we eventually overcame all these obstacles and was able to offer this service not only within a tight timeframe but at exceptional value as well. We had rave reviews and people told us it added an extra dimension to the humble birthday cake and was always a major talking point at any celebration.

I am going to have to admit that we did make one big mistake along the way. The problem was that a lot of people did not want to cut their cake and loose the fantastic artwork so (slightly red faced, as we had not thought of this problem) we offered a FREE hard copy so the lucky recipient could save it as a reminder of their great day.

Edible Caricatures have gone on to be one of our top sellers and we are proud of the fact that we brought these two great things together to make a lot of happy people.
