I came across this photo while putting together a collage for my son Ethan's school. This was the cake I made for his 3rd birthday over a year ago. We had a party for around 50 people, but the cake of course served 100. Whenever I see the photo, it still makes me smile. And the smile it brought to Ethan's face that day was priceless.
Peace, baby! A company celebrates its 40th anniversary with a 1960's themed cake. The bottom tier features a paisley print, the middle tier is "flower power" and the top is peace signs, all dotted with the ubiquitous smiley face.
This whimsical, yet elegant cake, was inspired by the dress color of the bride-to-be: not quite chartreuse, not quite lime green, a very striking and sophisticated green. Inside was tiramisu (vanilla cake layered with rum espresso syrup and mascarpone cream).

This kitschy cake was for a unique bridal shower whose theme was the "1950's housewife." The "bubbles" are handcrafted from white chocolate and painted with edible luster dust. Inside is moist lemon cake with lemon filling. (Serves 40 people)
