A couple of weeks ago I popped into Magnolia Cake and Bake which recently relocated from the West Rand to where (the new) Bimbo's used to be on Beyers Naude, directly opposite Steve's Spar. I wanted to do something completely different for Lee's birthday this year, something totally unexpected, and decided on a karting cake - big enough for the 30-odd friends and family he had invited to a celebratory dinner at our local steakhouse, Thunder Gun (which just happens to be a stone's throw from Magnolia). I asked Magnolia to deliver the cake shortly before our arrival at the restaurant, and secretly arranged with the manager to bring it out after dinner. Below are a series of pics showing the magic unfold :)

Above: Pics I took of Lee and his Team Bazinga kart at Kyalami a couple of months ago, which I emailed to Henneli at Magnolia for inspiration

Below: The pic she MMSd me once the cake was ready for delivery

Below: The cake arrives amidst much fanfare. Lee was stunned - in a good way!

All in all, a huge success!!
