I made this cake for Ken Newby.
He is my daughter-in-laws Dad.
He turned 70.
I wanted it to be really awesome.
I learned a good lesson on this cake.
DON'T put fresh strawberries in a
cake. Expecially not a Carved one.
It WAS really awesome......
then it started to sag.
The strawberries I think.
Maybe the moisture inside from them.
Anyway, the tires started going flat.
And it looked a little more...."animated".
I liked it before.
Live and Learn!
These are the after pictures!
I should have got some before pics!
I made this little sign for him.
I have been seeing these on
the crafters blogs.
I did not do so good on
I want to try a few more.
I have one ready for MY dad.
I think I will adhesive spray the
back of the paper...
Stick it down.
Then modge podge over it next time.
Ken is such a great guy.
We sure love him.
Ken with also our Stella.
Stella kissing her OTHER
Ken with his Grandchildren.
The two little girls in the skirts:
Gabriella and Stella.
They are Shaun and Lindsey's
Girls. Also Our Grandchildren.
Ken's favorite of his Car Collection.
I modeled the Cake after it.
I told Lindsey that I also fell in Love with this car
while making it!
It is a beautiful car.
Ken calls his Black Beauty.
It sure is!
