Walking and Ski Boots Cakes
I have a strong belief that when possible, we should always source what we need and any skills we require from local companies. I was therefore really delighted to receive an email from Mark Brigham of Ellis Brigham Mountain Sports asking me to create a cake to celebrate their 80th Anniversary. The company is still in the ownership of the original family though it now has branches all over the country.
I asked Mark to send me some information on the company and spent some time looking at images on the Internet. After looking at the company logo and the promotional material that was being produced to celebrate the occasion I came up with a design that was based on a pair of leather walking boots. To enhance the design I also included a rucksack, climbing rope and Ice axe. I suggested that the colours should echo the company colours which are a strong vibrant orange, white and black. I communicated with Mark by email and sent him a rough sketch of a suggested design.
In addition to the main cake, Ellis Brigham also wanted to have some company logo cupcakes which were to be the prize in a competition that they were running on their Facebook page. I arranged to have the logos printed onto icing along with a large logo for the main cake.
Mark was delighted with the final cake and it created quite a stir on their website and Facebook page.
