A Birthday Cake Story

So, my nephew and a couple friends of his were given the assignment of making my birthday cake. hahaha! They came to my house this afternoon to construct this monstrosity. this amazing display of love and devotion. So, I decided to record it. Memories, you know? So, without further ado- Welcome to Cake Boss: Southern Mississippi style.

The idea was created, and the cake was mixed

Then, the icing was constructed

and, taste tested for acceptable use
..which didn't exactly meet satisfactory levels, so it had to be doctored..
But, it ultimately made the cut. 

Now, to craft the board and cover it with foil..

it was a bit of a challenge..

Now, to ice the cake

then, a small game of Rock, Paper, Scissors to decide who would do the detailed piping around it.

Cameron lost..which means he gets to squeeze the sack.. 

Oh.. don't worry.. Bruce got some action too!

All the while, Michael is working on the stencils. Bless him. 

Whew! That was a lot of work... Dan finally decided to join the group. 
So, he went straight to work with the fondant.
You see Bruce supervising back there? 

Time to put it all together. 
But there's just something missing...

Back to the drawing board.
Details, details, details....

Lots of work..but it was worth it. I think they did a jam up job! 
And, how special is it that they made my cake!?
That's one of the best gifts EVER! Thanks guys!
You really made this 32-year old Bama fan happy. 


  1. I certainly was pleased with their efforts..Nice surprise for you baby daughter! Even the details around the base of your cake was a nice touch.. May you continue to be positively impressed by these young men many times to come. But Michael's touch certainly got our eye.. I am so proud of you and certainly of these four wise young people! Love you and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

  2. A very well-written post. I read and liked the post and have also bookmarked you. All the best for future endeavors.
