The Saga of The Pooh Cake

If you read the post about the Winnie the Pooh Cake you may be wondering if it made it to my Grandson’s birthday – it did.

The decorating was finished by flashlight during a power failure – only a Grandma would be so dedicated as not to let a little thing like darkness derail a grand child’s cake.

Winnie the Pooh 3D cake made from pound cake. Strawberry Cheesecake, Three layer triple chocolate cake. Single layer vanilla cake.

The cake not only was finished by flashlight but it also had to be transported 20 miles (30 minutes on winding, hilly country roads on a July day in Kentucky. My wife held Pooh on her lap the whole way, then assembled the pieces when we got there. Again, only Grandmas do these kind of things.

And all for what?

Guess what? No one cut into the 3D Winnie the Pooh Cake. I wanted to and eventually they will, but he survived the party intact.

I also wanted my wife to fill him with strawberry jelly so when we cut into him it would look real. She mumbled something about not being appropriate at a first birthday……..but I will keep that one in mind for a later date….13, 14?
