Two weeks ago I reported that I was 65.

Well, I didn’t have a picture of the 2×12 my wife gave me.

It’s worth looking at.

Lee that was a great looking cake. What kind of wood was it?

And a saw to cut it how thoughtful.

Finally some saw-dust that tastes good! She did a wonderful job!
Need an address to where to send my piece?
Oh… You waited until the cake was gone to show us. (smart)
Happy belated Birthday!

Happy Birthday Lee and many more. That is some awesome looking cake. What kind of wood did she make it out of. I certainly would check it before I took a bite that baby looks real. Congrats buddy. m

Great looking cake, Lee.

Not sure I’d I’d want to partake of it if you needed a SAW to cut it! :-)

Thanks.
The idea was my wife’s. She wanted it to match the oak flooring in the house.
Construction was by “Cakes by Darcey” in Roswell, GA
The design was airbrushed onto the icing. It was a chocolate cake with a caramel filling.
You did notice that the chocolate decorations were a saw, hammer, screwdriver and pliers.
All very tasty.

Happy Birthday!

A beautiful piece of art, but I expected it to be Maple flavored.<(;O}#
