John Legend celebrates his 30th Birthday with a Grand Piano Shaped Cake

  • Mood: Tired!
  • Music: John Legend
Recently, I was asked to make a grand piano shaped cake for fellow Capricorn, John Legend, who celebrated his  30th birthday last Sunday at Lucky Strike Lanes in Manhattan.

Model & his beloved, Chrissy Teigen, ordered the cake personally and, after learning my birthday was the day before,  invited two guests and myself to join the festivities at Lucky Strike and an afterparty which continued at a club downtown.

John requested a cake made with peanut butter, chocolate & love. I created a peanut butter cake with dark chocolate swirl filled with  milk chocolate ganache and peanut butter buttercream between each layer of cake. YUMMY!

Everyone I spoke to, including Chrissy herself, loved the cake and I even had my piece stolen from me, which is just a well because I have a huge bowl of chocolate and peanut butter cake scraps in the fridge. I figure if I eat them all by midnight they won't count as 2009 calories. :0)

Happy New Year's Every one!

This cake was made for a rollerskate aficionado who wanted to be the envy of her party guests! Apparently, it worked I got a call the next day asking about the cake!

Stephen Colbert's Wrist Strong Anniversary Cake!


I was lucky enough to be called to make a cake to celebrate the 1st anniversary of Stephen Colbert breaking his wrist, bringing awareness to Hollywood's exploitation on wrist violence.
I didn't get to meet Stephen, but I did get to sit his chair! )

"We did not use the cake in the show, but I Stephen did enjoy it.  He was surprised to see it.  He made the first cut at the wrist, and he ate a slice during rehearsal.  I am sending you a copy of the show that night on DVD.  Thanks again for everything!"
