Cakes for ANY Occasion (and we do mean ANY!!)

Howdy faithful blog readers. Have you been anxiously awaiting another post? I hope so, and I'm also hoping that this post won't disappoint.

Our saying here at Indy Cakes is that we make "Cakes for any Occasion". Some people have really put that to the test lately.

Don't get me wrong, we love having a unique reason for making cakes, so we decided that this post would be dedicated to not only those cakes which make you wonder "What kind of party is THAT!?", but also a very, very special cake at the very end.

This first cake, is obviously for a Tea Party. Not anything political, but an actual tea party. Not too many people host tea parties nowadays, but it's nice to know that cake is still considered a staple for the occasion!

If you think this next cake is an air conditioner, then you're correct! This lucky cake recipient had just gotten certified as an HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) specialist. What better way to celebrate than with a cake that looks like an air conditioner that you don't have to fix!!!

This next cake had our "Most Unique" award up until last week. This particular cake was in celebration of a man being colon cancer free for 5 years. We thought a butt cake was the only appropriate way to mark this particular, if not peculiar, milestone.

Last, but certainly our best, we have the following cake:

Yes, that is a kidney. In cake form. This story brings a tear to my eye every time I tell it. Several years back, a solider was injured, but nothing life threatening. He told his sister (who was also away due to military service) that he was just fine. Well, several years later, she comes home to find out that his condition is worse than he let on and that he would benefit greatly from a kidney transplant. She decided to get tested to see if she was a match, and as you can tell from the photo, she was. She wanted to use the cake as a well to tell her brother that she was going to donate her kidney to him to allow him to life a better life.

I don't think we will ever find a better reason to create a cake, but I welcome the chance to find out.
