The Guel Cake was made for the family’s annual reunion/fundraiser for the Carmen Guel Scholarship Fund. Carmen Guel was the matriarch that brought much of the family here from Mexico, many, many years ago. She has since passed, but she is remembered through this scholarship, and is represented on the top tier with her signature hair clip and braid flowing down the cake, and the flower she always wore behind her ear. And finally, the Mariachi she loved are represented on the sides of the top tier. This is an interpretation of the official logo that the Guel family designed in her honor.
The bottom and middle tier were made to represent some of the traditional colorful Mexican tapestry artwork. This cake was donated along with a gift certificate for the silent auction and party that was held for the scholarship fund. The Guel family has been very supportive of AJ’s Moonlight Bakery from the beginning, and they were even nice enough to list our business on their family website, so we were very happy to contribute to their cause – and they loved the cake!!!
Who doesn’t love fire engines and firemen? Kieran played the hero at his birthday party. Dressed up in his firefighter suit, he brought his fire engine and is ready to tackle any fire. It’s a dirty job, but somebody has got to do it.
We have pictures of our hero! We’re grateful to Kieran’s mom for sending pictures with this note:
“Thanks again!! It made the day even MORE magical for all of us!”
Daxtyn loves octopuses as much as he loves Finding Nemo’s Dory. When he saw his cake, he couldn’t keep from pointing, staring, and smiling. The joy of a child gently touching the head and tentacles of the octopus, spines of the puffer fish, colorful coral, swimming fish and sea horses, and Dory is wonderful to watch.
Happy Birthday Daxtyn!
