As you can imagine, birthday cakes are kind of a big deal in our house. I always let my boys choose their cake, so we start talking about birthday cake themes several months before the actual birthday celebration. Typically, Jack is my steadfast, predictable child …
Every birthday cake that I create is special, but I had a personal connection to this particular cake. We celebrated my husband’s grandmother’s 85th birthday this past weekend with nearly all of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Maureen has been so welcoming to me since the first day that I met her and I always enjoy spending time with her. I admire her love for her family and she proudly boasts of the accomplishments of those she loves.
It’s for these reasons that I wanted to create a beautiful cake that would help us celebrate Maureen. I will ways remember the joyous smile on her face as her family sang “Happy Birthday” and she blew out all of the candles in one shot!
