Semper Fi

This cake was made for a lady's son who was going into the Marines. They were having a going away to the Marines party for him, and the cake has an American flag draped over the right side, with some dog tags with his name on them, and some Marine boots made out of rice krispie treats on top. The gun was made out of foam core and covered with black fondant.
When I delivered the cake I saw a wall of pictures in the house of her son, and she kept talking about how proud she was of him, and how she knew he was going to take on such a selfless position when he got older. It just left a lump in my throat thinking about how she must feel giving her son to our country, sacrificing that much for our freedom. I thanked her over and over, and gave her a big hug.
