Last weekend I got to make my grandfather's 80th birthday cake for a little family celebration up in Boulder.
I made a single layer chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream and topped it with raspberries and chocolate curls. Nothing fancy, but YUM!
I whipped it up and drove up to Boulder on Friday night to celebrate with everyone. I think it turned out pretty manly!
Do you see that hat?! Love it! He got the hat with the special fuzzy hair and the necklace full of gag gifts for an 80 year old man. He loved it and I felt so lucky to be able to celebrate his birthday with him!
