our own little ace of cakes

I promised I'd post pictures of the cakes from my birthday party. Michelle created and decorated both of the cakes. I was very impressed. It was a great birthday present in and of itself to have such a creative and loving girl do something she knew I'd love.

This is the cake M made for non-chocolate lovers like her brother, Danny. It's French Vanilla cake with cream cheese frosting. And it was delicious. It set the tone for my Crime Scene cake pictured below.

Notice the crime scene tape surrounding the cake and the chalk outline on the opposite river bank.

This is a closeup of one half of the cake and shows the tow truck pulling the car with blood in it out of the water. You can't see the "suspect" on his cell phone or the tow truck guy very well but they're there.

When we brought the cake home we only brought part of it because we're trying not to eat so many sweets. Anyway, the part we brought was the road. Michelle said she'd tell everyone it was the road to old age, since I turned 29. I thought it was hilarious, especially as I'm eating the road.... there's a metaphor there. I'm not sure exactly what.
