Oh boy! oh boy ... this was a cake that had to include so many things.... I wasn't really sure how it would come out, but in the end I think it came out great!
I was asked to include NY and Florida in this cake, because they were important to Brian. Hence the big apple for NY and the Florida gator, palm tree and beach for Florida.
Cluj Napoca was represented by Il caffe, which is a local coffee bar, where the birthday guy and his wife met, so it was special to him, hence the "Il caffe"coffee cup.
The airplane was another important element that I had to incorporate in the design.
