Cake Walk

Mabel Reveals Her Secret To Reaching Age 105

It was a special birthday surprise thanks to her daughter and the rest of the family.

What a magical day! I have to tell you that this young lady lights up a room. You wouldn't know that she just turned 105. I mean, wow! Mabel Anctil is such a force in their family that they nominated her for a special Cake Walk.

Mabel knew she was getting a visitor this morning, but the "who" and "what" remained a mystery until she opened the door:

We were so lucky to be there with Mabel and her family, surrounded by at least four generations of love. Thanks to Mabel's daughter, Mary Sue, for helping organize the surprise and Dianne Miele for nominating Mabel for the Cake Walk.

Watching the big surprise all over again. Happy Birthday!

Did you see the beautiful creation whipped up by the decorators and designers at Oakmont Bakery? The entire top is covered with hand-crafted flowers of all sorts and colors. They did such an amazing job, over-the-top fantastic once again.

Watch out... Mabel's got the knife! Just kidding, she was eager to dish out some delicious cake.

As always, a special thanks to Oakmont Bakery owner Marc Serrao and his amazing bakers, decorators and designers for helping make the Sparkt Cake Walk so special.

Thanks to our friends at the Oakmont Bakery for cooking up such amazing and delicious treats for our Cake Walk
