Barbara demonstrating cakes:
Cakes for Ruthe
On the right is a pic of Grand Prairie's Deputy Mayor Pro-Tem-Ruthe Jackson, holding her 90th birthday cake @ the Ruthe Jackson Center. Barbara decorated a replica (top right) of the Center in cake. After making that cake, she interviewed Barbara and Karl on her cable show: What's Happening in Grand Prairie.
One year, Ruthe presented Barbara & cake to the Commissioner's Court in downtown Dallas. Barbara had her picture taken between John Wiley Price & Ken Mayfield. The judge at-the-time was Judge Jackson. For the finale, Ruthe asked Barbara to present the judge with the cake. Well, Judge Jackson shoved his chair back and threw his arms out because he thought Barbara was going to shove the cake in his face! lol
Boy, did everyone start laughing!
One of our wedding cakes was featured on the Channel 5's DFW Today Show.
