Girl From Cake
The magical surprise
'someone special' at celebration events
Imagine the scene ...
It's a party - maybe the 40th birthday of
a client. He's the company executive, the CEO, the boss.
Imagine that moment when they ask hi up to make a speech,
two waiters wheel in a tiered cake, the guests all sing
"Happy Birthday" and he blows out the candles. Suddenly, out
of the cake bursts A Marilyn Monroe lookalike and sings
"Happy Birthday" directly to him.
Wouldn't THAT be the talking point of the
event? You bet! It's a stunning surprise moment, a wonderful
photo opportunity and something you'll get the credit for!
"John ... I can't thank
you enough for your wonderful performance on Friday.
Everyone is still talking about Ronald's face when Julie
sprung from his cake. Thank you SO much for everything".
~ Diane P. Oxford
This is a bespoke illusion
that has been a major feature of my programme for many
years. I've performed this at private parties, corporate
dinners, banquets, celebrity events, product launches,
premieres and trade shows over the last 15 plus years
In all the time I've been doing this I
have heard of no other performer offering this in the UK.
This means you've got an exclusive market to capitalize on,
only limited by your imagination and marketing abilities.
You get everything you need to produce a girl from a
celebration cake. I've performed this illusion many times
each year and it's earned me in excess of £60K.
Book it just once every few weeks and
that could be £5K - £10K this year.
And think what it will also do for your
"On behalf of our MD and the Board,
may I thanks you for your superb performance last weekend
... the Marilyn Cake production was the perfect photo moment
we'd hoped for. Thanks again".
~ David ST.J.
I'm not selling tons of these
just this one!
I only have the one. It was made as a one
off and came into my possession many years ago when my
company, MagicWorks, started to do illusions. At that time I didn't have anything to
offer at events that was in the illusion category. Clients
would enquire about close-up and then ask what illusion I
could perform as a cabaret.
I had nothing. I didn't want to
get into that whole business of hiring assistants,
rehearsals, needing a van ... nightmare! But I hated seeing
clients go away to find another act! "Can you saw my wife in
half?" "Can you produce my son for his Barmitzvah?" "Can you
make the MD levitate?" I'm sure you've had these, and more,
and maybe you even fulfil some of those. I've had solutions
to the sawing request, but I never really liked it and
didn't always find it visible enough.
"As you know, we've
always loved the personalisation and intimacy of your work
and your surprise production of my daughter on Friday night
topped it all. How EVER did you do that?".
~ Christine B.
"But I don't have an illusion
If you perform close-up and perhaps a
cabaret and are considering adding something else you can
offer clients, then just as this became the perfect solution
for me, perhaps it can be for you too.
Not only can you
please clients by offering it as a surprise, but market as a
stand alone item and then get booked for close-up too. It
really does have the potential to allow you to stand out in
a crowded, competitive market.
"But I don't have a van!"
What you get is the illusion structure
itself comprising a purpose build trolly, made of strong
square section metal, with folding legs and castors. On top
of this is the cake base which can be redecorated from tiime
to time to suit the occasion. This folds all away within
itself into a 'box' with a blue leathercloth cover. In this state it measures
will go through an average car door onto the rear seats.
In addition there is a board with drapes.
I also changed these frequently to match the decor or theme. The
current one has seen better days but a few minutes with some
fabric, ribbon and a staple gun does the trick.
The main illusion provides the base level
of the tiered cake. On most occasion I would have a fresh
iced sponge cake base made and sit this on a board and set
of pedestals, insert candles in the top. If the client
wished for this to be their cake, suitable for cutting and
eating, then this was discussed with them.
"Perfect John. We all loved the
way it provided a real feature without the big set up often
associated with illusions. Ideal ... I'll call you again
~ Pierre B. Banqueting Manager, Cheltenham
I'll also provide a file with thoughts,
ideas and presentation tips so that you can gain from my
experience and work this without hitches.
"Can I see a photo?"
I am unable (for copyright reasons) to
show you lots of action shots of this. I had others but lost these
in a hard drive crash (see my story). But here's what it
looks like. One waiter has just removed the real cake on
pedestals with candles that were blown out, and this
captures that moment when the Bunny Girl pops out and
surprises the Birthday Boy! She would then be assisted out
rapidly to take him onto the dance floor.
"Where can I perform this?"
I've performed this at so many events,
the list is endless.
Here's just a few:
"What a night! Despite the alcohol
flow I DO remember all too well that girl who somehow
appeared from my cake. Have you got any more cake ...but
don't tell my wife!".
~ James L. Surrey
"What About The Girl?"
Well, I can't provide everything! Here's
what I've done plus some additional ideas for you:
Check out the Look-Alike Agencies and
find a Monroe who sings the "Happy Birthday" classic
originally performed for the President of the USA.
Use any model, suitable girl and dress
her as a Vegas Showgirl for a glitzy themed production and
presentation of a gift.
'Bunny Girl' - with bottle of champagne
Pop Star Look-Alike. Produce a Tom
Jones, Elvis, Britney, Kylie etc at a Barmitzvah or other
Relative - I've produced a surprise
guest from overseas after reading out a telegram that they
couldn't be there!
Soccer Player - produce popular guest
at boys party, like a local soccer star to sign autographs,
photo opps and demonstrate ball skills.
Produce the Barmitzvah boy at start of
his celebration dinner.
Ditto BatMitzvah for hers.
"Daniel was so pleased to be involved
with your cabaret and to produce him like you did was a
wonderful twist. We all thought he'd missed the cake moment!".
~ Angela W. Essex
Really this illusion should be around
£2500. But it is used and I need to get rid of it. I have to
move and have no room to store anymore. I have listed it
previously at the full price but it needs to go over the
next week. So ...
