We celebrated Mom's birthday at Olive Garden today. Marilyn's friend, Patty, made the cake and it was both beautiful and delicious. She used a humming bird motif, because Mom is partial to humming birds (and the color purple). A good time was had by all and after lunch, some cake was had by all, also.
It was an incredible homemade chocolate cake and the icing tasted like icing did when we were kids. You can see more of Patty's work on her website, mypattycake.com.
