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