Happy 40th Birthday to Tonya!

Stephanie and Tonya in 1988
One of my best friends from high school recently contacted me to make her cake for her 40th birthday. We had reconnected through Facebook after being out of contact for many (too many) years. At one point of our lives, we were inseparable. We studied for the SAT test to take together at the same time...practiced HOURS upon HOURS for a talent contest at Evelyn Graves Christian Academy, which was our high school. The dance we created was to Take 6's song entitled, "Gold Mine"...I'm aching just thinking about some of those moves.

Tonya requested a blue shoe cake similar to what I had done
before with a few changes

 I can't believe how much time has gone by and that she was about to celebrate her 40th birthday (I will be celebrating mine next year!). Every year, no matter what, I always remembered her on her birthday and wondered how she was. I must say that it was a pleasure to create the cake for her event! I was a bit bummed that I couldn't stay for the celebration, because I had other cakes in the works. I have been told, however, that she had an awesome time.
