A license to surprise!

Our pastor's son, Sam, turned 16 yesterday. They got him a used, red Ford truck as a surprise birthday gift. Gretchen, his mom, came up with the idea to have me do the cake to match his new license plates. She said the surprise went GREAT! Even when he saw the cake he just thought it was a creative idea for a 16-year-old's birthday cake and didn't actually think it was symbolic of anything. I'm glad the surprise went even better than you'd hoped! Happy 16th Birthday, Sam!!

Clever Birthday

I just did a cake for Margaret's 80th birthday. It was last week, but the whole family is getting together to celebrate this weekend. One of the many blessings of being given the gift of so many years of life is that she has so many roles and titles: wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother... So, instead of having to make a choice for which name to put on the cake, Margaret chose this clever design so she didn't have to include a name at all!
