Zachary's cake




This cake is the most special cake I have made. I was honored to make it and i'll tell you why. This is for my nephew Zachary. He was my first nephew. Zachary was 3 months old when he fell victim to sids. The unfortunate event happened while on vacation in Outer Banks, NC.  He was a happy little boy and this is his 5th birthday cake. Each item on this cake represents something. The helicopter represents his nursery. In his nursery there was a plane hanging on the ceiling that he always used to stare at. The cloud 5 is for his age and that he is in heaven. The monarch is for him. The story of the monarch is summed up like this. He really took a liking to the monarchs on vacation. It was the first time my mom (grandma) really bonded with him.  That, I believe, was the last day he was living. I wasn't there so I can't tell it word for word. So it ends up that every time one of us sees a monarch, we believe it is Zachary watching over us. God bless him.
