50th Topsy Turvy Birthday Cake (639)
We incorporated various mementos into this 50th birthday cake including Italian wine, 2 sheepdogs, the father’s daughters, a British passport, and a giraffe. The party was held at Johnny Rockets in the Short Hills mall. The top tier of the cake was carrot cake with vanilla buttercream, the 2nd was lemon cake with lemon buttercream filling and the bottom tier was chocolate cake with hazelnut frangelico
We received some great feedback from the whole family. First we received a comment from the Neil:
This cake was ordered by my wife for my birthday and was a total surprise – what a surprise – Anne you are a genius – people couldn’t believe at first that it was actually a cake, until they tasted it. Usually at parties people will have a small piece – this one everyone wanted to try the three different layers! – Thank you!
Then we received this sweet comment from Neil’s 9 year old daughter:
Hi I am Neil’s daughter (age nine 1/2),
The cake was one of the best cakes I have ever tasted my favorite layer was the Vanilla. My dogs on the top of the cake looked so realistic!
Thank’s for making my Daddy’s day special!
P.S. I looked great on the cake I am the one with the red shirt!
