Cakes – Dad’s Birthday – 1996

One of my first baking assistants was my sister’s son, Calvin.  He was three when he helped me make this cake for my father for his birthday.  The cake was probably carrot cake or spice cake, and it was covered with a cream cheese frosting.

I made stencils of the tracings of Calvin’s hands, and we dusted the hand patterns with cocoa powder.  The rest of the decorating was done with green colored frosting.

Not much else to tell about this one.  I’m pretty sure it tasted good.
