Boat that takes the cake

Hosted my family for a retirement party last night. My sister had this cake made for me using photos of our RIB. We loved the way our dog was added and the details like the water and fuel caps on one side of the console!

Ultra spiffy!! Hope it tasted as good as it looked, but it's almost a shame to cut it. I'd have taken the outboard.

I bet a couple hundred guys will open this thread expecting to see a picture of their boat! That's a spectacular cake...too great to cut into! Congrats on your retirement. May you enjoy many healthy and happy years doing exactly what you want to do...every day.

Cheers!

What a great idea and a great job on building the cake. We've been retired for 6 years and love it more every year.


The best to you both.

Now THAT was an awesome cake. The dolphin detail was also amazing. Hearty congratulations on your retirement, Menzies. Have you planned a looooong cruise on your Grand Alaskan?
