Brooks of SamiCakes Boutique also wrote on The Guardian's Word of Mouth blog about how she made the JLO lion cake. According to Brooks, Lopez wanted a lemon cake with coconut mousse filling. JLo's personal chef Ron Gelish immediately texted her to make the said cake. She coordinated with Sindy Mashiah, the party planner for JLo's birthday and they agreed on the cake's wild design after several sketches made by Brooks.
"After a few hours we agreed that she should be lying on the lion, wearing a sleeveless onesie," wrote Brooks on The Guardian's Word of Mouth blog.
Aside from the fondant, gum paste, modelling chocolate and Rice Krispies, Brooks also used steel pipes, PVC pipes and floor flanges to construct the wild JLo cake.
Brooks said that she was proud of the cake that she made for Jennifer Lopez on her 45th birthday celebration. She was also interviewed by Inside Edition about it. Click HERE to watch the video of the interview from Inside Edition.
