Better late than never
For her birthday last year Upper Cut Cake gal, "J" presented "E" with a paper cupcake book with the promise of a real cake to follow. This is it! As another birthday has now passed it had to be a pretty special cake.
"J" always puts her homegrown blueberries in the freezer to await the most special of occasions. This year is the exception as they turned blue just in time for the lower layer of this cake. E is a self confessed blueberry lover. In her own words "so many blueberries so little time!"
As a true Maine girl, "E" also loves lobster. So with the lobster cutter "J" bought while visiting "E" in Bar Harbor last year an idea was harvested. The cake became a table set with delicate lace tablecloth, plate and bib ready for the lobster to be served.
Happy birthday "E"!
