50th Birthday Cake

I was all excited over the making of this cake.  Why so special you may asked.  This cake is special as it is for Amy whom I have known for a long long time; more than 25 years.  I met her through hubby and then she met her hubby through my hubby.  We even got married in the same year.  We both have only daughters, she has 3 and I have 1.

During courting days, we went for countless double dates together.  We spent long hours on many Saturday nights in PJ Hilton yakking over unlimited free coffee refills.  Yes, those were the days when most hotels served unlimit refills for coffee.  I supposed with so many people like us who took advantage of the hotel atmosphere, hotels have not choice but limit the refill of coffee to only 1 these days.

We even went for holiday trips together to Langkawi, Cameron Highlands, Genting Highland and Singapore. 

As we progress in life, we found similar hobby and interest.  We both love to bake.  So it was no surprise when we both signed up for the same Wilton cake decorating course organised by ICAC.  Our plan is to sell cake when we retire.....ha..ha..ha...

Being a cake decorator herself, I was a little apprehensive when the time comes for me to make her birthday cake.  I wasn't sure will the cake be good enough for her.  I felt relieve when Amy's daughter, Monica gave the thumbs up when I sent her a picture of the figurine to be placed on the cake......phew.
This is a 2 tier cake with the lower tier in chocolate cheese swirl and the top tier in Orange poppy seed cake.  Both the top and bottom tier were covered with fondant.  The figurine is also made of fondant.  I attached bead to the end of flower wires to place on cake top to create an explosion effect.
