Missionary Cake

My brother just got home from his mission to Romania.  He gave his homecoming talk in church on Sunday 11.11.12.  (Not as cool as 11.11.11 or 11.12.13.  I am a numbers person.)  Then, as is the Mormon Culture custom, we threw a homecoming party for him at my parent's house after church.  I made a Missionary Cake.  It is a simple chocolate cake with a fondant tie and name tag.  The Blue, Yellow, and Red are the colors of the Romanian flag.  
I also made Romanian Flag Rainbow Jello.
We had cookies, a vegetable plate, ham and cheese plate for sandwiches, and hot apple cider.
Around 30-50 people showed up, it was a lot of fun to visit with my aunts and uncles and cousins.
Here is Richard cutting his cake.
I think he liked cutting the cake more than eating it.
