Happy Birthday Grandpa!

Happy Birthday to Kristin and Ryan's Grandpa! Kristin asked me to make a French Vanilla Cake with Bavarian Cream filling for her grandfather who's turning 87, and she asked me to incorporate the following into the cake. She wanted me to include her grandfather's 3 wishes which are: 1) going to Disneyland, 2) going to the Chinese Garden at the Huntington Library (to see the flowers and lake), 3) spend an hr with only the grandkids and eat dessert (apple pie and vanilla ice cream). So I did this with the present tags, and made a symbol to represent each wish. The Mickey Mouse icon for Disneyland, flowers and a pond for the Chinese Garden, and a slice of pie to represent the last wish. His favorite color is blue, so I made the cake frosting blue. Also, Kristin told me that USC is very important to him as well since all the kids and grandkids went there so I made the Trojan symbol to represent USC as well. Now for those of you who know me, you know that I'm a Bruin, but USC is great, that's why I incorporated this list of all the wonderful things about USC (per Khoa's request), ready?
Here it is:

Great list right? Hahaha, all jokes aside, the greatest thing about USC are my friends and their families who went there! =) Anyways, all the decorations I made are made of fondant, and the cake is frosted with buttercream. This is a very personal and meaningful cake for Kristin's grandfather, and that's what makes it even more special. Happy Birthday Grandpa! This is definitely a special one =).
