Peg + Cat = Fun Cake!

One of the pleasures of designing cakes is that I get to hear about all sorts of fun kids’ shows that I would otherwise know nothing about.  A recent example is this cake, based on the show Peg + Cat.

That’s Peg there on the side, and the blue fella dangling from the balloon is her cat.  They like to do math.

In the initial request for her daughter’s cake, the mom described the show as “a math-themed series featuring a girl and her cat who solve math-related problems,” while also involving “barn animals, three teens, 100 chickens, and an alien”.  Um…as you do?  This show sounds AWESOME!  🙂  I was instantly intrigued, and couldn’t wait to make this cake.

When not solving math problems, Peg and her cat like to bake cakes, hence the mini-cake on top.  I like these guys.

A few hand-painted elements finished this cake: the birthday girl’s name is modelled after the font used on the show, and around the base tier I painted a replica of the cool watercolour-style background art they use.  Notice that the clouds are infinity symbols – way to tie in the math reference!!
