Happy 60th Ron!

 My friend Ron celebrated his 60th birthday in Toronto last week and my gift to him was the cake.

 Ron has a larger than life personality and a joie de vivre that he shares with everyone he meet.  I wanted to make a cake to reflect this.

 I decided a film strip of his life over the past six decades might suit. I made three 9"x13" slab cakes and each one featured two decades of Ron. I cut the boards, reattached the cut piece for transport and when I got to the venue of the party, I removed the removable bits to put them all together as one cake.

And here is the finished product. What an adventure! Travelling 5 hours in 30C and then putting it together was just nuts but I wouldn't have traded it for the world. Happy birthday to you, dear Ron!

Your cakes are always fabulous works of Art, but this one is truly amazing. The idea of the film strip is terrific. How could anyone eat such a great cake?
