Bobby and Kate Balboa Dance Workshop flyer


So, I'm a big fan of a blog called Swungover, which I've been reading for months, and halfway through creating this flyer for Boston Balboa's workshops next March with Bobby White and Kate Hedin, I figured out it's Bobby who writes the blog! (Geek out... geek out...) Now I'm really looking forward to the workshops...

In addition to the overall flyer design, I also created the illustration for the Boston Balboa logo shown on the back of the flyer. It was hand-drawn, scanned, and converted to vectors. A future version of the logo will hopefully appear on the Boston Balboa site.

Piano cake and cupcakes

This is my third piano keyboard cake. For this one, I decided to step it up a notch and use rolled fondant over the keys to give it a smooth, clean look. The black keys are made of miniature Charleston Chews. The display box, designed to look like a grand piano, was made out of foam board and cardboard, and painted black with nontoxic tempera paint. Three different types of cupcakes fill the box.
