Sunday we went out to Uncle Mike's farm to celebrate Chuck (Jake's dad) and Nancy's (Jake's aunt) birthdays. I was asked to bring cakes, so I made a vanilla cake with raspberry cream cheese frosting and a chocolate/chocolate cake. Of course I also made my famous cake toppers. I made a cowboy with a bottle of moonshine for Chuck and a nurse for Nancy. They both turned out terrific. I spent several days testing out new methods to get the clay faces just right.
Happy Birthday Chuck! You are my favorite Beverly Hillbilly!
