It was my mother's 50th birthday this year, and since that's pretty momentous I decided to bake her a cake. (I know, extravagant, I should've toned it down a bit.) Since I couldn't think of a truly unique and from the heart gift I decided to make the cake my gift. My mom has always loved bees and so I went to town making a Beehive Cake. With the help of my awesome friend Christina we slowly constructed a masterpiece. It was baked in four pans - only two of which were cake pans, the others were stove top frying pans! The icing was all chocolate - the dark drips are simply icing that's microwaved for a few seconds to alter the color. That didn't seem like enough, so we added blended chocolate chips for "dirt", flowers along the bottom and top and I made Bees made form clay, acrylic and wire to stick all over the place. =) Happy birthday mom!
