This cake is really alot more impressive than the photo....since I suck at photography....It's for a friend who wanted a cake for his dad's 65th birthday. Steve is a math teacher and a gardener. I took ALOT of ideas from the very talented "Icing on the Cake" from flickr and this is what I came up with.
The cake is lemon with raspberry swiss meringue filling and frosted with cream cheese frosting. The equation on the chalkboard (supposedly, per my son) equals 65.
