Michelle Obama's birthday cakes made locally
I hear that Michelle Obama's birthday cakes were created locally by Sabine Breintenstein, the pastry chef for the Donna's group of restaurants and Donna's catering. Nothing too exotic -- one was chocolate with vanilla icing, the other vanilla with chocolate icing.
On Saturday someone on the Presidential Inauguration Committee ordered two cakes to be decorated with "Happy Birthday," but didn't say who they were for (I suppose for security reasons). They were then delivered to the Presidential train for the birthday celebration, although Donna's wasn't told who the cakes were for until after the train left Baltimore.
Their creator said she was glad she didn't know until afterward who the birthday girl was.
"I would have been too nervous."
