Saxophone for a Jazz Music Lover

I was commissioned by my client to design this cake for her colleague's birthday. He is an anesthesiologist but she didn't want any doctor themed cakes. She described him as a quiet and serious person who loves to listen to Jazz music.  We then decided upon a Jazz music themed cake with a sugar art saxophone for this Jazz music lover.

Much research was done the the anatomy of this elaborate musical instrument. I learned  the main parts , that is, the neck, the body, the bow and the bell. Also, different components like  mouthpiece, reed, octave key, octave pin, ligature, reed, neck cork, neck screw, tenon, keys, pads, key guard and the list goes on. At the end of the day, I was a confused cake artist albeit a very much educated one! ; )

Thanks for the order, Dr. Goh. : )


  1. I think the saxaphone on this cake is fabulous! I'm baking a cake tomorrow for my future father in laws 60th birthday and I hope it turns out well. He's a jazz lover and I needed a saxaphone to immitate. If it turns out well I'll post a picture, if not you already know what happened, lol. But once again, I think you did a marvelous job on the details!

  2. I'm loving the "All That Jazz" cake....I'd love to have something like that for my son. Being from New Orleans and all and he plays the piano and sax this would be a great surprise for him. He's not a kid that asks for much but he'll make 16 next year and this gives me an idea of what to do already. I'd have to have N.O. or 504 somewhere on there or even the Saints emblem.

  3. Thank you for your kind comments. : )
