Happy 97th Birthday!!

I am one of the luckiest people ever!

I have great friends!!!!

My first friend here in New Braunfels was Joyce. Over the years, we have gotten closer and closer. She is so supportive of me!

Joyce’s grandpa was turning 97 and she wanted me to make his cake. Joyce wanted a fruit basket for him. Triple Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Filling and Icing.

Here is what I came up with:

We moved to New Braunfels because Keith bought a business here. He bought the business from Bill and Joyce. We have grown very attached to them.

Bill has mentioned a few months ago that his mother baked him a Pineapple Upside Down Cake when he was a child and it was his favorite.

We found out the Bill and Joyce had no plans for Christmas. Keith made them stew and cornbread. I baked him his favorite cake.


  1. You can’t leave that hanging–did Mr. K like the pineapple upside down cake or not?!? It looks SUPER good! Gramps loved the fruit basket, you did an awesome job, as always… 🙂

  2. He loved it…he even cried! It was so sweet! He said it reminded him of his mom’s cake and she has been gone for 40 years…..
