Honoring_fallen_soldier Cake


This was baked by Covered with Icing and Honors Fallen Soldiers of the 101st Airborne.

The paper on the cake reads:


Rest now, fallen comrade,
For I bear honor upon your sacred place.
Rest now, fallen comrade,
For I stand casting freedom
Upon your resting place.
Fight no more, fallen comrade,
For I am here to see we are free.
For I will stand, fallen comrade,
Having full knowledge my dress and
Actions reflect on those that surround me,
For I represent a nation
And the state in which I serve.
So rest now, fallen comrade,
For I will bear honor upon this
Sacred place you now honor.


Sergeant Christopher Adams,
Maryland National Guard, Honor Guard

Memorial Day Cake


This cake was baked by eiyapet in honor of a service man killed in Iraq during Christmas Time.


These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.


Thomas Paine
