For the 4th of July, I received a cake order from the mom and sister of a friend of mine, Meghan. They and her husband were throwing her a surprise 30th birthday party a few weeks prior to her birthday so that she'd be really surprised!
Since the party was on the 4th of July, the cake followed the theme of stars and stripes too and even had some fireworks on there as well!
The top tier of the cake was a moist banana cake with nutella filling and vanilla bean buttercream. The bottom tier was a chocolate expresso cake with cannoli filling and vanilla bean buttercream.
When I arrived to deliver the cake, there was excitement in the air and the family was gathering to make "Surprise" signs for Meghan's arrival - it looked like an awesome party was about to happen! Happy Birthday Meghan - hope it was an awesome day!
