Let Them Eat Cake

1 comment February 6th, 2011at 01:38pm Posted by Eli

The Reagan worshipers are sparing no expense – or excess – for his 100th birthday:

Ronald Reagan once said you can tell a lot about a fellow’s character by his way of eating jellybeans. A lot of people will be eating them on top of 400 pounds of chocolate birthday cake in celebration of his 100th birthday this weekend.

The official Ronald Reagan Centennial Birthday cake is officially under construction, and it is impressive. Four Seasons Westlake’s pastry chef David Laufer is heading up a team of 10 who will, in the end, spend close to 160 hours baking and crafting this five-tier masterpiece.

(…)

The centennial birthday cake will be covered with licorice jelly beans on the top tier, with a 50 pound chocolate eagle perched on top. One-hundred stars and stripes will alternate on layers with the Seal of the President of the United States, the Seal of the State of California, and the Seal of the USS Ronald Reagan on one layer, and edible photographs of Reagan through various stages of his life on another.

Mmm… cake.  I can’t wait for some of it to trickle down to me!

    You shouldn’t have to wait long. The whole message of the Reagan Revolution was “Let them eat cake!”
