Sweet Retirement

I absolutely loved this cake!  I loved it so much that I did not want to give it away.  But, it was going to a very sweet lady who is retiring from many years as an elementary school teacher.  I wanted to do something extra special and sweet for her as a thank you, and this is what I came up with.  This was not the original design I drew up, but it just kind of evolved over the three days I worked on it.  I really think it was Divine intervention!

I heard the party was a surprise to her and that not only was she excited about the party, but that she was so taken with the cake, she did not want to cut it.  The other ladies finally persuaded her to let them cut it, but they only took tiny portions so that she could take it home to show her family.  That made my day!  That is the whole reason I do this.  I love to make people happy and to bring joy and sweetness to their lives.  And how sweet those ladies where to only eat a tiny amount so she could have the rest.

Details are - white butter cake with buttercream filling, covered in fondant.  All of the embellishments on this cake are edible.  It took three days and many Disney movies to do it all, and I loved every second of it.  Thanks to Nana, for giving me the opportunity to do this!  And thanks to God for the inspiration and ability to do it!

The reception was held at One Tree Grill in Bearden, and it was beautiful!

Thanks for looking and Happy Retirement Mrs. Dake!
