Thank you cake

One of my children's favorite taekwon-do instructors is leaving us this summer to pursue her education in another city.

While we can't begrudge her this, we will miss her, and wanted to let her know she had been appreciated by all of us.

So as a thank you/good-bye gift, I made her a cake.

The figures sparring are actually tracings of our instructor, and her sister, another instructor who has left us, which she recognized when she saw the cake.

While this was a "simple" cake with only black and white, it did give me a bit of a challenge trying to figure out how to present it without too much black, and without overwhelming the figures.

I'm pretty pleased with what I eventually did, black color stripping for my border, to enhance the these two strong women showing what they can do!

Our thanks to both of the ladies for their years of patience and for passing on their knowledge to both of my children!

Wonderful cake. I like it because of the simplicity and the line drawing is immediately recognizable.

What a cool idea! I'd be stoked to get a cake like that, even if I don't practice tae kwon do!
