This year he had TWO birthday cakes! The chocolate one with pecans on top was from one of hubby's aunts. Oh, what I would give to have a big slice of that right now! ha The Circus Lion cake I made for him. I used to keep a Wilton Cake Book on hand and before each of my children's birthdays I would give them the book and let them choose which cake they wanted. This one turned out well I thought. And he loved it!This picture was taken outside our home several summers ago when he was home on leave from the Marines.
