For some, turning 40 is a big milestone and meant to be celebrated. Just like a female guest of the resort who marked her 40th birthday with a huge bang (not literally). She started her celebration in the morning, from the time they came down for breakfast. The restaurant crew had set up tables for her and her friends complete with a small flower arrangement and balloons. I made a two-tiered red velvet cake which was served to her at breakfast.
The bottom tier was three pound and the top tier was one pound. I layered and frosted the cake with vanilla butter icing. The design? Rustic. That's what she wanted and a few flower accents for a tropical touch.
