Celebrating a Century with Cake!


We had a very blessed time celebrating the 100th birthday of Lometa Gaskin, one of the church mothers at Campbell Chapel African Methodist Church in Denver, Colorado. 

In the weeks leading up to her birthday, we asked Sister Gaskin what her favorite food is. She always replied, “Cake.” When we pressed her to identify her favorite cake, she would loudly say “CAKE!” So, Sister Bridget Broomfield of our church came up with a brilliant idea: Why not celebrate this birthday by making a cake for each decade that Sister Gaskin has been alive! Ideally, we’d get a representative cake for each decade.

I put a query out on social media, and we got A LOT of great suggestions! Here’s what Sis. Broomfield decided to make:

German Chocolate Cake

15 layer Red Velvet Cake

Chocolate frosted Vanilla Cake

7-Up Pound Cake

(Grape) Jelly Cake

Coconut Cake

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Brownie Cake

Combination Rainbow Cake (the base) and Sock-It-To-Me cake (the numbers).

Here’s a gallery of the cut pieces:
