A dear friend of ours turned 40 today. His wife surprised him with a HUGE party. It was a funeral for his youth. I was so lucky to be able to make the cake. (Be sure to click on the picture to get a better look at the details.)
This cake was a lot bigger than it looks in the picture. It took more than 5 dozen eggs and a half a gallon of oil. The top portion of the tombstone was made using rice crispy treats (5 recipes). My husband, Jim, helped out a lot with this cake. He started by drafting it out on the computer for me, and he even marbled the fondant. Isn't he good?
Here is the back of the cake.
Almost everyone came to the party dressed in black.
Here is the birthday boy, Kevin... aka Bishop McEvoy. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
It was such a fun party. I am glad that I got to be a part of it.
