New eCard – Swearing Off Cake

Screen shot 2013-02-22 at 2.37.40 PM

In our new eCard, Swearing Off Cake, you’ll see that while many people resist the temptation of birthday cake — there’s always someone willing to dig right in! We talked a little with Sagan Yee, artist and animator of this eCard and found out two fun facts:

1. Originally the entire card was black and white, but at some point she was inspired to add the blue background in there to make it more visually interesting. The cake already had pink icing, so she thought blue would make for a nice contrast. The color scheme fit the music too; light and kinda snappy.

2. As we chatted about cake, Sagan got to thinking about ice cream too.  Turns out she no longer eats dairy, but finds that mashed frozen bananas make a really good substitute.  Otherwise, she likes vanilla bean made with coconut milk, with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar reduction.  Pretty fancy!  Black sesame, wasabi, ginger, red bean avocado and garlic are flavors she’s also enjoyed.  According to Sagan, eating weird ice cream flavors is another way to ensure you don’t have to share.  Although, she encourages everyone to try them at least once!
