Sheila, the birthday girl, worked at Panago when it was still being called Panagopoulos. As you can imagine the hours were long and she would get off at 2am. Having smelled pizza all shift she craved anything but pizza. So on here way home she would pick up four Skor bars and eat the steak left over in the fridge from dinner. Once I heard this favorite story from her daughter I knew what the cake needed to be.
So, I hopped to work and created a brand new recipe - Skor bar!
The best part for me was making this new recipe. But I have to admit a close second, hands down, was during the delivery. The client gave me number sparklers for candles in the cake. Having much experience with sparklers, I told her that I would light them, no problem! Well as it turned out I had to eat my words.
The sparklers lit just fine, but the six really didn't want to stay. I thought I had fixed the problem and walked out with the cake. I was placing it down in front of the surprise birthday girl and low and behold the six twisted around in the cake leaving her with a surprise 95th birthday candle. We all got a big laugh out of that!
So happy birthday Sheila from Spiritual Ingredients!
