A seemingly giddy man called to order a birthday cake to surprise his wife with. He had never done that sort of thing before and just thought it would be a great idea, since she loved the cake I made for their friends’ wedding. She had raved about the moist red velvet cake with cream cheese filling. Since he was “new to this” (lol), he didn’t know what size, shape, colors… to ask for; but with some guidance, he placed an order. One of my guidance questions was “What is your wife’s favorite color?” He instantly replied “Blue.” Because there is a very large range of hues for every color, I asked him “What kind of blue… like a baby blue… or a darker blue…?” He really didn’t know what to say about that, so I asked again (this time in a way I thought a man would better relate to) “Like North Carolina Blue…. or Duke Blue…?” That did the trick! lol. “Definitely not a baby blue.” Okay, so I went one step darker than Duke Blue… for good measure…this one is more of a Yankees Blue! I hope Lisa enjoyed her cake as much as Scott enjoyed surprising her!
Happy Birthday, Lisa!
