Hurricane Earl Didn't Stop This Party!

Sue and Jim didn't let Hurricane Earl stop them from celebrating their joint 50th birthday with 170(!) of their closest friends at their awesome 2nd home on the lake.  When Sue contacted me, she was looking for one cake that would represent things that were important/loved by both. We shared a few ideas and then she mentioned how everyone is so happy on the lake when Jim is in the driver's seat of their SeaDoo boat, towing their 2 teenage boys in the inflatable tube; while she's watching from their beach, relaxing in a lounger with a margarita and a great book... the family dog by her side. So, we ran with it! Sue sent such a nice email after the party:

Thank you, thank you for the incredible cake!  It was a huge hit.  Guests were asking if the Cake Boss was in the building, It’s amazing how many people watch that show.   Everyone was blown away by it.  The cake was also delicious and moist.  I gave your name out numerous times.   So thanks again for making our 50th more memorable...

*happiness* - here are a few shots of the cake!
