Happy Birthday Always
It took me almost half a day to make this cake. I thought I'd be spending my birthday alone so I figured I might as well take some time and make a cake. Then the idea for a three layer birthday cake came to me. I thought the cake needed lots of colorful frosting on each layer too.
I made the cake in three separate sections. This is one cake which will be 'baked' after it's frosted. You didn't think it was edible did you? If you did I am flattered, but it's a ceramic cake. This ceramic cake is 14 inches tall and 6.5 inches wide.
I'm so glad I thought to make a ceramic cake; I'd like to make more because I think a ceramic cake is the perfect birthday present for anyone at any age. Making this cake is special to me because it marks my 60th birday. When it came time to put the lettering on the bottom section I wanted the cake to have appeal to anyone in any year, so I wrote, Happy Birthday Always.
Last night Gary called from Tallahassee so he will be home today to help me celebrate. He said he has some stories to tell about his trip, so stay tuned for some of those.
I dedicate this cake to all those who might be spending a birthday alone any day of the year, Happy Birthday Always.
