    My mom made cakes that were beautifull but I still think her best was the very first 5 tier wedding cake was best of all because she made that for me. She made 2 of my kids cakes but by the time the 3rd got married she wasn’t up to it.

    Thank you Mary Bare…I hope that one day soon I will just be well enough to make more cakes like this for charity. If and when I find the picture and newspaper clipping, I certainly will ask someone to post it on here for me. The hardest part was getting the light (s) inside the church to light up the stained glass windows. I can’t recall now how I did that, but if I had to do it over again, I would figure it out. thanks for your comment.

    To Suzanna—yes I kept a copy of it the newspaper clipping, pictures etc. Wish I knew how to download pictures on the computer. It was awesome. But then again, I need to find those pictures and article. The article is in my filing cabinet, maybe the pictures are as well, not certain. I moved into this house in 1995, so this was back in the early 90’s. I’ll never forget that day until the day I die. Truly an accomplishment. I mean it was a party of all parties. Had brought in the string bands, Cozy Morley and over 400 people. The Pastor was so happy with the outpouring of love from the congregation. Still trying to organize things here from the flood, and if there is a way when I find this picture and article I will try and ask someone to download it for me on here. I have written many articles and short stories for publication (one of many things I enjoy doing), while recuperating from the knee surgery in a few months, I hope to be able to work on my book that I started back in 1999 but never finished.

    And to Debbie,this cake was one of my favorite ones that I made. A true masterpiece. It was awesome for me to see how the people at the Church came up on stage to take a closer look and take pictures. It was truly appreciated by the Church (for the money it brought in to build a new roof for the Church, I was able with my as I call them my twelve volunteer apostles, to get this party going and raise $47,000.00 for a new roof for the Church.) Unfortunately the Church since has closed from being a Catholic Church to being a Baptist Church, but the neighborhood has gone down dramatically. A friend drove me into Philadelphia as I wanted to show him where I grew up the neighborhood is really bad sorry to say. My friend was in shock, and he realizes now why I love this home so much.

    Anyway its after 5:12 a.m.,I’ve been up since 4:00 a.m. with pain, now the pain killers are kicking in and making me drowsy. Going back to bed. Have a beautiful day ladies. I love you both.

    I use to make many decorative cakes such as these. To the point that they make pictures in the paper about them. I usually did it for charity events to raise funds for the Church. My best cake was, they were were building a new Church here, I took pictures, and it had bells, and so much more detail. I had the Church light up from the inside of the cake through stained glass windows. It took six men to carry it out of my home, and three days and nights with help from my girlfriend to make. Yes, it made the headlines and yes the Church made a fortune just on that alone. It fed over 400 people…whew a lot of work, and I have to admit honestly, a bit of cursing and swearing from me while doing it. Some things fell, etc. etc., but in the end I was a happy, but tired camper.
