DH asked me to make cake for an end of year party for one of the student organizations he leads on campus.  Since I haven’t done too many cakes since the baby has been born, he asked me to keep it simple.  He didn’t want me to be put out and it needed to serve about 60 people, so the quantity alone would be a bit much.  He also said I could make it whatever flavors I wanted, even orange if that’s what I wanted!  That’s really generous of him because he hates orange flavored things about as much as I love them.  Which is a LOT!
