My friend, Susanne, celebrated her 50th birthday in February. Sadly, it's just taken me that long to get the picture posted. This cake was symbolic in a couple ways: 1. It's gold (I know - hard to tell from this shot - but trust me - gold and sparkly). It's pretty common for gold to be tied in with 50 years. 2.The cake is 5 tiers high - one for each decade Susanne has lived so far! The cupcakes were made with her favorite - chocolate cake, chocolate buttercream, and Girl Scout Thin Mints on top!
