This week I had the honor of making a cake for my grandmother's 85th birthday. It's a lot of pressure to come up with a cake celebrating 85 years of accomplishments. I decided to focus on her favorite color...RED and the fact that she raised 5 children and all the descendants that she has. I also added a tribute to some of her favorite things. She selected the flavors: coconut pecan, cream cheese lemon with raspberry, almond raspberry and oreo. The tiers were 6, 9, 12 and 15 inches.
For Craig's birthday, my sister wanted a cake to celebrate him and what a great guy he is. We came up with a design that made him a star and used words that describe him to decorate it. The layers were Chocolate Oreo, Cinnamon Roll, and Coconut Pecan. The Coconut Pecan was really special because it is a favorite cake flavor from childhood. We didn't have the exact recipe but were able to recreate it from Craig's memory. Happy Birthday Craig!
