Mamie taught herself to decorate cakes. She bought a book, read it, practiced and ended up with a successful business making cakes for weddings, birthdays, retirements and anniversaries.
She took pictures of many of her cakes. I found them in a drawer the other day and scanned them into my computer. Here are some of them.
This is in one of the dining rooms of Mamie’s restaurant.
Here is Bumpa fooling around with one of the finished products.
I can just imagine Mamie hollering at him not to touch it!
Here is Mamie putting the finishing touch on a cake before the guests arrived.
I am in awe of the tenacity and intelligence Mamie exhibited in teaching herself to make such works of art.
