The Mort Cake

My mother's friend Mort is turning 60 on Thursday so she asked if I would come over and help her with the cake. After a slight communication issue, we ended up with cupcakes. We both decided a regular cake would have been better so we shoved all the cupcakes in a 9X13 lasagna dish and smothered them in buttercream. Then we started decorating. First she asked me if I could make a recumbent bike on the cake. I said no. Finally, we settled on a Mort and his four granddaughters.

Here is the Mort cake in various stages of creation:

Heads and hair, no faces.

Beardy-Baldy McMort!

The second oldest has glasses, just like her grandpa!

Are you ready for your close up, Mr. Hoffman?

The finished product!

And the best part- you can still see the cupcakes!
