This cake is made for a retired man, Tai, who is celebrating his 50th birthday. He opted for early retirement from a government job to start enjoying life.
I was puzzling about the colour scheme I should use earlier on.. An orange sunset theme popped out after much pondering. Sunset indicates rest, relax, and the swaying coconut trees further enforce the easy life mode he is living up now.
My friend told me that he was quite surprised to see such a little sculpted cake, especially the tiny camera sitting by the piggy like teddy bear, haha! Ya, he's a photography geek and now spending his new episode of life taking photos here and there.
Hope Mr. Tai has a memorable 5oth birthday!
