Remembering Dawn Party at Serendipity

Candy made a special treat for Serendipity to offer for April Fool's Gift - she made it as a cross between our friends,
 Tara and Mark Reed (Fool Hardy) a marvelous Renfaire act.  
He is Marquise and she Ima Nutt.
 So she took Ima's colours and Mark's fool costume and did this version for our 
favourite place to visit and eat in town.  She plans on doing version of 
them at some point.  I cannot wait to see them, as they will be even more detailed.

Anyway, Candy asked me if I would drive her to Serendipity this Friday to deliver it.  
I said I would (don't need an excuse to visit there!).  Only, I knew Friday was the anniversary the birthday of Dawn Thompson (Candy's sister).  I know Candy's misses her so much, but she hadn't said anything, such a "stiff upper lip trooper".  So I called Becky Bayer Kimbler (co-owner) and asked if she would make me a special cake for Candy - a birthday cake for Dawn. I knew Dawn loved purple, so I asked her to do a cake with "Remembering Dawn" on it with purple roses.  I didn't tell Candy, just took her up to the magic shop in the middle of Main Street La Grange.  I told her we were having lunch and then at desert Becky brought the cake out.  Candy was so surprised and pleased.  It took a sad occasion and made it a happy memory.

Wish to give a thank you to Becky at Serendipity for 
helping me make a very special day.
