The Perfect Gift for Someone who has Everything

Someone is celebrating a special occasion--a friend, loved one, relative. You're trying to think of the perfect gift to give. The problem? This person has it all.

I encountered this when my friend was about to celebrate his birthday. I was pressured to find a nice gift. At the time, the party would be my first time meeting his friends kaya bawal magpatalo sa gift!

What does one give to someone who has everything? A customized cake!

I contacted Lara Puno of Cake Tree Manila. Laura is an acquaintance and she designs and bakes the most awesome cakes. I requested for a cake that looked like a watch. (My friend loves watches and he had a new favorite at the time).

The cake I requested was patterned after this Bvlgari watch. 

Since I assumed that the celebrator's friends are health-conscious, I chose a carrot walnut filling with cream cheese frosting so it wouldn't be too sweet.

Laura is extremely nice and professional. I ordered this 4 days before the event and it was delivered to my house on time. 

Here's how the watch cake turned out:

"Best birthday cake so far!" 

The birthday celebrator loved it and so did his friends. It became the center of attention in the party as most people have never seen a cake like this.

It was too beautiful to eat (or at least that's how I felt). I kinda felt bad when we had to eat it.

Actual watch vs watch cake.

1. Size: 8" x 3" (head), around 5" x 3" x 2" (strap)
2. Cake drum: around 14" x 14"

This cost a little less than Php 5,000 (as of late 2014), which included delivery. 

It was the perfect gift for someone who has everything.
