My thirtieth birthday cake for my birthday that was in February this year thanks to the artistic talent of my Brother in law and my Sister.Some how I think they would have been offended if I stuck it on my lathe and turned it. Not to mention the mess it would have made!

Nice! Did you cut the pieces with a handsaw and serve them on tablesaw blades?

That’s cool….....How fitting for a woodworker. When I retired from Center Mfg, they got me a cake with littls plastic power tools on in and the worked when you wound them up.

That cake shows you are well appreciated!!

Beautiful cake, were all 3 pieces of the logs cake, or just the big slab? Can not imagine where they got the
idea that you like wood, their skill with pastry is almost as good as yours with wood, I like all of your projects
and it is easy to see that you have talent and the ability to use it, thank you for sharing your woodworking
journey with us, and may it have many more wonderful years.

The chef could be an honorary LJ just on the merits of the cake!
