Happy Birthday to a Goose Hunter


Griff turned 16 on March 23rd, and we decided to make him a very custom birthday cake. My wife baked his favorite, carrot cake, which I cut up and assembled into a snow goose shape. Then came the white icing, a little black and pink icing, some orange wedge candies for feet, and coconut “feathers” and Griff’s special cake was ready. A cake board sprayed with blue food coloring and tules made of fettucini and ladyfinger pastries completed the scene.

  1. I just read through several of your stories. I enjoyed all of it. You have a great outlook on life. You’re smart to write it all down. I mostly enjoyed reading about your kids and your relationship with them.

    I have two daughts, 7 and 9. I’ve been programming them since day one to be my hunting partners. I take them with me as much as possible. They are both great kids. Our time together is my greatest joy. It’s just about time to get the 9 y/o started on her hunter ed. class.

    Just wanted to say “Hi,” and let you know your writing is appreciated. See you at the refuge some day.

  2. Hi!
    Can I ask you if you have the template for this cake?

    • I just cut up two 9″ round sheet cakes, Nancy, without following any pattern. It’s been years since I made it, but I just sketched out how I recall doing it and will email that to you.
