Art has a fondness for buying me cakes, particularly after I told him about Birthday Month, which begins a month before your birthday and ends a month after your birthday. For me, this means cakes can appear anytime from approximately April 4 to June 4. I am sorry I didn’t get a photograph of the first Possum cake, which had a rather hideous large gray rat-looking creature made of frosting. Delicious, nonetheless.
From then on, just lettering. Also, the 13th Anniversary of the Polka Cowboys at the same venue.
For Art’s 73rd birthday I made a large sheet cake and with the help of a hand-drawn chart laid out the candles, with a gardenia in the center. It took four people to light the candles, and Art, Missy and Ed blew them out before I could get a photograph, or burn the building down.
