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! ; )
