Wow! Yes, the best retirement cake ever. How scrumptious it looks - what a shame to cut it!Love Inca xx
What a true work of art! They didn't have the nerve to cut into it, did they!
FIRST CONGRATS X 87 TO GAIL. BERTIE I AM SHOUTING TO THE TOP OF MY LUNGS WITH GLEE AND TOTAL AMAZEMENT. THAT IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CAKE I HAVE EVER LAID EYES ON. GAIL'S BOSS NAILED YOUR LIKENESS AND OH THE WFT TAIL!!!WHAT WAS THE FLAVOR INSIDE? I SURE WOULD HAVE HATED TO CUT ITHUGS AND MY VERY VERY BEST TO GAIL AND TO YOU...CECILIA
The legs were Swiss roll, the body chocolate cake and the head hazelnut cake!
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOh my word only an expert could make 3 flavors and decorate it so perfectly. Ali has a calling should she decide to retire too.Hgus cecilia
Hari OMOMD - that is just too good to eat, surely??? But I guess a pretty fair attempt at demolition was accomplished... Congrats to you both for arriving at this point. Now onward and upward! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
That is the perfect cake to celebrate your retirement with although it must have been tough to cut into it. We are also curious as to the flavor(s) inside. Congrats on your next chapter together.
Gail notes that it was her now ex-colleague Joanne, who is not fond of dogs, who chopped off the head!
Wow. Magnificent, in concept and execution. Clearly, Gail's co-workers and boss care for her and will miss her! I guess that means you're now the Boss, Bertie. I hope you see fit to provide Gail with plenty of treats and praise.
That's a fabulous cake. What a great boss to think of it--obviously knows her colleagues well!
What a wonderful(and pawfect!) cake! Congrats again to you and Gail, Bertie! We know you will both enjoy retirement!xoxo,Rosy, Jakey & Arty
Now THAT was a very thoughtful and creative cake. Congrats to the retiree!!!Woos, Lightning and Timber
That is awesome. Congrats on the retirement.
Bertie... you didn't warm us you were retiring too! We love the cake, and are looking forward to reading all about your and Gail's adventures in retirement. With love from Riley (and from the one who types)
Bertie - Kind thoughtfulness and cake in one post. A great way to forget the oil price.
Twenty one people all with their eyes open and smiles on their faces for the picture now that is an accomplishment. Guess they all wanted to get to the Bertie cake! Happy Retirement Gail PARTY TIME.Sweet William The Scot
Happy retirement, Gail and Bertie! That's a really grand cake; you obviously had a lovely group of people to work with. Now on to more adventures!
