While I admit this is not your typical birthday cake (dumpster-diving for ham hocks) it DID meet the client's expectations when she ordered it for her aunt's 50th birthday! Sometimes it's best not to ask too many questions..... Although the request was for a dumpster, complete with a ham hock (the fish bones were a last-minute detail that just seemed to go with the overall theme) and a replica of her aunt..."and make her look dirty!"... being the final request, this was an immensely fun cake to make. Just to add a touch of class (if that's possible with this cake) it was a champagne-flavored cake with champagne buttercream.
