I'm not at all sure why I photographed it still covered in plastic wrap. Another mystery for the ages, I suppose.
This was another cake for a coworker. Her favorite kind of cake was angel food cake, so that's what I used for part of it. The center was a 12" round angel food, and the sun's points were made of a lemon flavored cake. I flavored some plain icing with lemon zest and a dash of yellow food coloring. The cake was served with sliced, sugared strawberries.
In the center you can see it says "Happy Birthday Cris" with "arol" crossed out above. It was some sort of inside joke at work – there was also a "Carol" in the department – but I don't really remember the details.
