Bonnie's 60th Birthday
A few weeks ago my cousin Carly asked me to help her out with a top secret mission. She and her siblings were throwing their mom a surprise birthday party and needed a show stopper cake. I love her mom and was super happy for the opportunity but knew that it would come with challenges. Bonnie lives in St George (a 4 hr drive) so Carly would be responsible for the delivery and setup- huge disaster potential. She picked out a beautiful 3 tiered spring themed cake with flowers, butterfly's and bright and subtle colors complimenting each other. I made some adjustments to the original design to assure everything was 'glued' on securely. I also stuck several skewers in to keep it from sliding or drooping. Each tier had different flavors and fillings: the bottom was chocolate with mousse filling, the middle tier was vanilla with oreo cream filling and the top was lemon with a raspberry cream curd. Carly said it traveled fine and that everyone fought over which flavor was the yummiest (yes!).
