Truman The French Bulldog Cake!

Scott secretly ordered this Truman dog faced cake for his wife Bobbi's bowling birthday party... a rated-G affair, pizza and bowling, as Bobbi is pregnant and due this summer! So cute! Bowling and pizza was my number one fave birthday activity when I was a kid... can't even remember the number of times I did that for my birthday party... Old Orchard Lanes 5-pin followed by Me n Ed's at Middlegate mall, crisp pizza served on giant tin pans, and a wide window into the kitchen so you could watch your pizza being finger-handled by a pimply teen in a tomato-sauce covered apron, while we sipped on plastic opaque glasses of orange fountain soda on ice!

The Truman cake was coconut cake made with pure vanilla extract, shredded coconut, a touch of almond extract, some vanilla almond syrup, vanilla almond buttercream and toasted coconut in the middle!

Bobbi loved the cake... and you know a woman is well-loved when her husband surprises her with such a sweet and thoughtful and hilarious gift!

Facts known about Truman the French bulldog:

Truman enjoys standing in the shower.

Happy Birthday Bobbi! Such an exciting year to come!
