My brother-in-law, Santos’, 40th birthday was a special occasion for a couple of reasons. One, he was turning 40! And two, it had been 8 years since he had been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and was given a very short time to stay with us. By the grace of God, he is still here with us today, and is cancer-free. He is our family miracle. And what better way to celebrate these two things then to have a big party!!! And we did! We danced and ate and drank a toast to Santos! I made his birthday cakes and took a lot of pictures, so enjoy!
Each layer was a different theme. Bottom layer was ballroom dancing(Santos can bust a move…ask his wife, Alicia!), middle layer was sports(because Santos is an athlete as well as a fan), and the top layer was the Salvador flag(Santos’ homeland.). It was Alicia’s vision, I just put it into cake :o)
I made an additional side cake, because it was a big party!!
And here’s one of the birthday boy and his cake!
Here’s to many more birthdays, Santos!!!!
