Cake!

Reviewing my posts, I can't believe I never posted about the cake Chef Duff Goldman of Charm City Cakes did for Roo's 13th birthday back in January!

She fell in love with Phantom of the Opera when we took her to see it in NYC. So, she asked for a Phantom Theme for her 13th. Easily done, especially with the movie version having come out. So we did the rec room up with stars and giant film strips and had individual bags of popcorn for the girls to go with movie munchies. Finger foods they could snack on while watching PotO on DVD. But.. the real star of the party, after the birthday girl, was the cake. After much discussion and research, Roo came up with the design she wanted for her cake, basing it off of a musical figurine:



She decided she wanted a mask and rose on the gondola, which Chef Goldman used in place of Erik and Christine. She was so thrilled with the cake that she wanted to save it for posterity.



Since *everything* on this was edible, except for the wire stem in the rose, that didn't happen. I can assure you, the cake was delicious.

It was so good and dealing with Charm City Cakes such a pleasant experience, that I have another order in for a Death Star cake for a small party at Shore Leave in July. I can't wait!
