Wrong day, but better than doing nothing!

Who knew? Saturday was not only Elton John night at the Toyota Center, but it also was his birthday. The folks at Pace Concerts contacted Nadine Moon of Who Made the Cake? to whip up a confection worthy of a megastar.

Saturday afternoon, Moon and Co. delivered a three-tiered chocolate extravagance filled with chocolate ganache and chocolate butter cream and decorated with icing ropes and tassels, hand-painted silver filigree and fresh lilacs.

Oops. The star would hate the fresh flowers, John’s manager said. Forget what the young lady who placed the order asked for. So back went the cake to the shop, where it was decorated handsomely with sugar flowers in lavender (his favorite color). The cake was back at the Toyota Center by 4 and was presented to the birthday boy before his show.

Thanks to Darleene Watkins who has sent this news to us and earn one gem.
