My first entry is a cake I made for my close friend ID!   ID turned 50 recently.  Well, ID is my OLDER friend, just incase you were thinking I'm about 50, hahaha!  ID has been my friend since 1991.  (We met at Speedwriting Secretarial College in Lagos where I obtained my Secretarial Diploma while waiting to get a job after college.  She was already working at a computer firm.  Since then she's been my friend and quite oddly, we've never had a quarrel, ever!  Its a very respectful friendship). 

ID's celebration was unique in the sense she had closed and open parties.  Celebration started with family and very close friends the night before to usher in her 50th year.  In the morning of her birthday, she had a breakfast fellowship at home for church friends and family and then an all night party in a banquet hall.  For her breakfast, we made a sweet breakfast table. 


For her night party, ID wanted her cake to be a highlight of the occasion.  When we chose her cake, I was a bit skeptical, but I geared up to take the plunge. We baked 5 double layer cakes and hung 3 of them on a pedestal stand to dangle upside-down - this cake style is called the CHANDELIER CAKE!  Now, that is some technique that WOWs any crowd!  The cake flavors were Orange and Almond, Mocha Swirl, Butter, Chocolate Marble and rich fruit Cake.  Geometric Patterns are very modern for cakes so we made two sizes of gold rings and decked the cakes with them.  Beautiful!  Very, very ID! Enjoy!
