Eagle Globe and Anchor Cake

As a Former US Marine, I like to celebrate the Marine Corps birthday with my friends (Also Marines) at a small tavern, with a toast, the Commandant’s Message, a cake cutting ceremony (Following tradition) and remembering all of our past, present and future Marine Corps brothers and sisters.

This year I was set on making a cake that everyone would remember… An Eagle Globe and Anchor Cake in the form of the U.S. Marine Corps official emblem and insignia.

I started out with the basic shapes, cake mix and an idea.

After cooling the cake and cutting it into the major shape, it started to take good form.

Everyone had a good time, and made fun of my “betty Crocker” home maker cake… but they didn’t say a word while they were enjoying the great cake.

I will have to think hard for next year and make another memorable cake to share.

Happy 239 years Marines! Semper Fi!
