Steve Aoki Cake Throw
A couple of weeks ago I was asked to make some cakes, not just any old cake mind you. These cakes were for Steve Aoki’s set at Cream Nightclub in Liverpool on May 5th. If you’ve not heard who Steve Aoki is, then he’s one of the biggest names in house music right now, he’s remixed tracks for Drake, Refused, and Snoop Dogg among countless others. He’s also the chief at Dim Mak Records and has many other strings to his bow. He’s big business.
Steve is renowned for throwing cake at people at his gigs, he estimates to have thrown over 1120 cakes, that a lot of cake!!
Now, those who know my style of cakes, will know I’m up for anything quirky, so making cakes to be thrown at people was right up my street. The brief was to make 6 x 16″ cakes with the words Dim Mak on. After reading an interview with Steve I found out the type of cakes he liked, so adhered to that. Me being me I decided to pipe around each cake with a different colour. Whilst I was waiting for the cakes to cool I thought it would be a nice idea to make him a little set of cupcakes so I quickly made him 4 cupcakes.
I’d like to say a big thank you to Adam & Elissa, I was made up to be asked to make these, I gained mega cool mum points from my 16 year old, so I’m totally happy!
I have lifted some of these photos from Steve’s Facebook page, I did ask if I could use them but I heard nothing back. So I’m sorry for stealing your pictures.
