Ken just turned the big 5-0! Everyone was excited for my old manager, but he seemed to be surprised that everyone was making a big fuss over this landmark birthday. Over the course of a few days, he was taken out to a few meals, they brought balloons and cookies, and I was glad to show him what we’ve been doing at the bakery with his own Sharks puck cake.
He knew I’d come and bring a cake, but he wasn’t expecting a fondant decorated cake. He’s a huge San Jose Sharks hockey fan that’s had season tickets for years, so we had to make this for him. When he saw the cake he just stared and said “Well now we can’t cut into the cake” with a huge grin on his face. But with Mexican chocolate cake and Mexican chocolate buttercream under the fondant, I knew he couldn’t resist a slice.
It would have been so cool if the Sharks would have scored 5 in a blowout at the game that night, but at least they had a home game that Ken went to with some family and friends.
Happy Birthday Ken!
