Ever seen a cake in the shape of a bag of fudge? Most likely your answer is no. To this I say, what a shame! Thankfully you made it to The Flour Garden where you have the opportunity to see one. And it was made all in the name of Lily.
July 22, 2010 marked the 40th year one of my best friends joined the world. Lily is an amazing woman - a fantastic, loving and dedicated mother and wife. She is one of the hardest working people I know. An entrepreneur of the highest! Her talents and creativity seemingly know no bounds.

Lily, you see, started her own fudge company late in 2008. Coupled with the long hours, constant marketing and endless selling she also offered the right product at the right time. In the middle of a severe economic downturn (recession is a word that very few governments throw around these days), what started as almost a hobby intended to just help bring in a little extra income, became a viable business at the top of the fancy food charts. Yum Yum Tree Fudge is gourmet fudge: affordable, delicious, sustainable, featuring locally sourced ingredients and made with the love and hands of Lily and her family. Now that's the kind of product that fits into every niche market and the kind of treat everyone wants!
So, what on Earth do you do to celebrate 40 years of a woman who is so spectacular, so gracious, so generous and kind? Well, you bake her a cake. And you bake her a cake designed by her daughter, commissioned by her husband and in a flavor requested by Lily herself!
Happy Birthday, Lily!
