I love it when I get to make cakes for people that I’ve known for most of my life. Several months ago, a friend from middle school contacted me, because she wanted to get a special cake for the special man in her life.
Mitzi and Myron love riding their Harleys, so a Harley-Davidson cake was a must for Myron’s 50th birthday! When I think of Harley-Davidson motorcycles, I think of clean lines, sleek bodies, and of course FIRE! So I wanted to incorporate those things into Myron’s cake.
As things usually go in life, when I was finished with Myron’s cake, I moved on to the next task at hand, and didn’t think much more about it. But a few weeks ago on Thursday morning, I got a frantic phone call from Myron telling me that he needed a cake for Mitzi’s birthday party on Saturday! Someone must have been doing some serious praying, because I actually had a light cake load that week. So with only 2 days notice, I was able to make a cake for Mitzi, too.
Now not to be outdone by Myron’s cake, I had to come up with a similar design, because Mitzi loves her Harley just as much as Myron does. So I took the Harley cake to a whole, new level….. a super, GIRLY level! I had to keep the flames but instead of orange, I made them PINK! and added some bling to make it even better. From what I hear, it was right up Mitzi’s alley.
*Note to the fellas! Requesting a cake 2 days before you need it is a very dangerous gamble. Myron got lucky. You may not. Book your wife/girlfriend’s cake early!!!
