Her colors were gold and pink and when I delivered the cake the birthday girl had on the most gorgeous gold gown.
The flavors of two of the cakes were chocolate with chocolate mousse and fresh raspberries and the other two were lemon cakes with raspberry mousse and fresh raspberries.
The party was outside at night so the cake was delivered when the party was in full swing. They were having a great time and I got to see the reaction of all the guests when they saw the cake. It was really fun.
