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)|
|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!!!
