This cake was made for my wonderful grandparents, who celebrated their 65th anniversary this past weekend! (Whoa!) Since the family tends to play games together between dinner and dessert for pretty much any occasion, a board game was in order! The locations represent streets they have lived on, restaurants they have frequented, the kids they had, the hotel they stayed at for their honeymoon, etc. etc. There are two cakes combined - one chocolate and one vanilla. I got the recipes from Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything, which turned out pretty well. The icing isn't homemade though - Bittman's recipes were too sweet. (Shoutout to my colleagues who taste-tested lots of different cake/icing combinations, and took their job quite seriously!)
