Merry Happy by CAKE. | Fresh Beats Record Invites

9.12.2011
A few new projects to share with you this week... naturally, I think this one rocks.  A client wanted a DJ for her son's 2nd birthday in the park, so we came up with a 'Fresh Beats' theme, incorporating bright colors and a throwback style. I designed a record invitation and retro envelope liner, as well as creating these simple record cake stands by hot-gluing upturned martini glasses to the base of some classic vinyl. So easy! The cupcakes were blue velvet {a twist on red velvet} as a nod to rock icon Elvis.  We ordered toppers from Lynlee's Petite Cakes in the shape of records, headphones + boomboxes and she completely out-did herself with these detailed designs.  The favors were small musical instruments and custom CDs.

  3. I really do like it, but don't forget to put some paper doily on top of it, because vinyl isn't food safe.

  4. Did you coat the lps in food-safe? If so, where do you get some? I'd love to do it!

    Also, can I have your blue velvet recipe?! Pretty please?

  6. the martini glasses are glass.

    @lasairiona you don't need to coat the lp's if you're using cupcakes- the paper forms a barrier. but otherwise just put some parchment between your cake and the record.
