Jewelry Box Cake

A jewelry box cake for my beautiful Mom.  The box is a carrot nut cake with delicious cream cheese filling. The jewelry is made of chocolate and edible diamonds.  It was fun to construct this cake; I needed some serious hardware to help stand the lid.  The logo has my Mom’s Chinese name “MoYing” on it. 

This winter has been a tough time for Mom and us all. But difficult times come and then go away if we hang in there and have faith in God Almighty. Plus if we did not have bad times, how would we recognize and appreciate the good ones?. Someone once told me "we get complacent so sometimes we need a "slap" to get back on track". Hopefully this cake will herald better times. 

“I learned there are troubles of more than one kind. 
Some come from ahead, others come from behind. 
But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready, you see. 
Now my troubles are going to have trouble with me.”
– Dr. Seuss
