Let them eat cake

For some reason, I just had it in my head that our friend Ross needed a birthday cake with his own picture on it. I take a lot of pictures of our friends and it was inevitable that I'd have a good, funny, non-embarassing (or really embarassing) photo to use for the top of a cake. There was the hilarity factor to consider, but also the edibility factor. What would we feel comfortable actually cutting into and eating. (I knew it would be creepy having him cut into his own face to serve up slices of cake, but I figured he was man enough to do that.)

Anyhow - if I get his permission (Thanks, Ross!!), I'll post a photo, but even without it is important that you know that the Hen House in Merriam (at I-35 & Johnson Drive) did an amazing job with the cake. The photo turned out beautifully, but most importantly, the cake (a 1/4 white sheet cake) was absolutely delicious. The frosting wasn't too sweet and the cake was moist, fluffy, and flavorful. Good stuff.

You have my blessing to post the picture.

The cake was very good. We had a chocolate round cake last night from Hyvee and it pretty much sucked.

Hi Sara,
I just stumbled upon your website and think it's great. I wanted to tell you about another place to get fantastic cakes. Locke's Custom Cakes in Kansas City, KS makes the best cakes I've ever had. They're located at 11 S. 17th Street (913.233.2253) and their website is www.lockescakes.com. I do not work with or for them - I just think they have fantastic cakes and wanted to pass it on.

Sincerely ~ Jen B.

I agree with Jen about Locke's. They do an awesome job and they're quite reasonable. In fact, I had a hard time choosing between them and Hy-Vee for my wedding cake. Hy-Vee won. 2 1/2 years later and people are still asking me who did my cake.

mmm... cake...
