A Cake for Max

Happy Birthday to our friend Max!  Last April, our non-profit, 4Epilepsy, had an auction.  I offered a cake as one of the prizes.  Actually, it was a gift certificate for a cake.  My friend Joanne won the certificate and decided to use it for her husband’s birthday.  Max is a tool guy – a handyman, carpenter, all-around Mr. Fix It.  He doesn’t only fix things, but he also designs and builds them too.  His work is beautiful.

I wanted to capture the spirit of Max’s talent in his cake, while keeping it simple.  The result was a woodgrained base with tool-shaped silhouettes.  The cake itself was the often requested, dark chocolate with a layer of raspberry preserves and chocolate buttercream.  I hope Max likes his cake, and has a great birthday too!
