This is Ian Vance decorating a birthday cake for his daughter, Yuna Kimberly Vance. Ian was a former editor of Pagosa.com and now is a school teacher in Los Alamos, N.M.
Not bad for his first time. It is one of Yuna’s favorite Smurf characters. This is particularly heart warming for me as Ian is continuing what I hope will become a tradition in the Vance family.
You see, when Ian was a young tike I began doing a series of birthday cakes for him. They were all based on something of interest to him at the time. This one was a “Mister T” cake. T was a character on a TV show.
Colorful and delicious. She loved it and so did I!
