I really make a lot of birthday cakes for people. I wish that I had photos or numbers from all the cakes I have made for friends and family members from over the years. This is a cake I made for my friend Marleen a couple of years ago. I met her about 15 years ago when she hired me for a job. I worked for her for two years, but we always stayed good friends. Now I make her a cake every year as a gift. She gets chocolate cake with chocolate icing every year because that is her favorite. Marleen is a great person who is creative and generous!
