100th Birthday Cake

One of the ladies from church asked me to make a cake for her mother's 100th birthday celebration.  I was honored, to say the least.  All she wanted was pink and purple and NO FONDANT. The rest was up to me.  No pressure!

Anyhoo, that's what I came up with. It was massive.  14" and very, very heavy.  I make weird roses.

I have only made one other 14" cake, and I had forgotten how big that really is. It ended up being too tall for the box so I had to prop the lid open.  It never occurred to me that the cake box wouldn't be deep enough. I felt a little betrayed by the box.

Plus 40 cupcakes for the nursing home staff. Because who doesn't like cupcakes?

I thought it came out nice, and she loved the cake, so yay!

That's all for now.

  1. Evelyn is my favorite old name....and I cannot imagine the size of a 14" cake. I think your roses look great. I was actually contemplating some "cheater" roses to do as transfers...
