Grandma Dorothy is 95

In July, my Grandma Dorothy turned 95.  I had such a great time making her cake.  I wanted it to be a cake AND a story of her wonderful life.  She was going to share this cake with the residents in her community so I wanted to make sure that it would please everyone.  I went with half chocolate with strawberry filling on one side and half vanilla with cherry filling on the other.  

Then, I poured through her photo albums and "borrowed" a few gems.  I took these pictures to our nearest grocery store who was able to copy these pictures onto frosting paper.  And here's what I came up with:

At 3 years old
Her Sweet Sixteen (on the left)

Wedding photo

At her 90th.

I brought my girls and nephew to Grandma's place so we could celebrate over lunch as well.

And I made cake pops for the staff.  They're wonderful!

Happy 95th Birthday, Grandma!!!
