The Chandler to my Monica...

("Friends" fans will get the title reference)

As Guelcys mentioned, our husbands have been our rocks throughout this whole journey.  They haven't complained even though we've become "cake supply hoarders," they go on deliveries with us, they build support systems when we need them, and so much more...all in all, they have supported us 100%.  What more could a girl ask for?

So today's post I will dedicate to my hubby, Jorge.  Since this whole adventure started, we've had the chance to make him two very special cakes - which I will share with you now.

In August of 2010, my husband graduated from Graduate school with a Master's degree in American History.  To celebrate, a group of close friends surprised him with lunch at Dave and Buster's and CWA, of course, provided dessert.

This is one of those very personal cakes that requires some explanation.  The top is self explanatory and everything is edible.  The top tier represents a bookshelf holding all of the topics he studied during graduate school and his final thesis.  The bottom tier is postcards representing the 3 places they visited on course travel trips (Philadelphia, Washington DC, and Boston) and 2 postcards representing my graduation gift to him: a cruise to Jamaica and Grand Cayman. 
It was a neat way to give him his graduation present and he was very happy.  Here is a picture from that day and his graduation day - so proud of him!!!! :D

The other cake we made him was a Pink Floyd-inspired 31st birthday cake.  The hubby is a huge music fan and Pink Floyd happens to be one of his favorites.  We celebrated with dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe (very appropriate setting, I thought).  The 'Dark Side of the Moon' topper was made out of sugar.  The top tier was made to represent 'The Wall' and each of the sides of the bottom tier represented other Pink Floyd productions: 'The Division Bell', 'Animals', 'Pulse', and 'Live at Pompeii'.

 Pure coincidence that the shirt he wore to dinner was represented on the cake ;)

Next cake we make him? we will have to wait and see, but it would be safe to bet that it will either music or sports related :)  Always happy to be able to do something special for my #1 supporter.  Love you hubby!
