what a cute story - thanks Jen for posting this......just shows you are never too old - or too young to love Elvis.
So Elvis really is everywhere! Hazel Phibbs, 90, shows the cake her daughter bought her 30 years ago. Phibbs kept the cake in the freezer since 1978. Elvis is in cold storage at a home just east of downtown Dayton.
Well, to be more specific, the image of Elvis is captured in icing on a frozen birthday cake that has been lovingly coveted away in a freezer there for 30 years. Hazel Phibbs, who celebrated her 90th birthday on June 12, vows to keep her Elvis cake until the day she dies. "I love that cake," she said on Thursday, July 10. "It is a treasure to me and I never want anyone to cut it. It's my Elvis cake."
"She has Elvis photos of the wall with spotlights focused on them," said Tracy Beck, Hazel's 35-year-old granddaughter. "She has a plastic Elvis guitar that was once filled with popcorn.
She has an Elvis lamp and rare old Elvis 45 rpm records" She added, "But that cake has taken on hallowed status for my grandmother." Hazel even has a backup plan in the event her electric power is interrupted and her freezer stops working.
"I'll find a relative with a freezer and have them rescue the cake as soon as possible," she said. "To me Elvis was the greatest star, and this cake just means the world to me." Did EPE also license this?

Where's the knife and forks at.
"How do I get placed in situations like this? Ah hell, I guess it's all part of showbusiness "~ Elvis in his limo on his way to perform in Omaha, NE on June 19th 1977
WOW, i bet that cake is hard as a rock LOL. Talk about devotion. I would go and have a duplicate made, take a picture, eat it, and play Elvis while i ate it.
