- Good morning Sir! What can I do for you this morning? - Hello! My mother will celebrate her 80th birthday at the end of the month, and we would like a custom-made cake for the occasion. The party will take place in two weeks. - Yes, that should be doable. How many guests are you expecting? - Let's say about thirty people. My mother loves passion fruit and pineapple, but the children would prefer chocolate, and we want to please everyone... - Yes of course! We could make two cakes which would complement each other? - That would be perfect, thank you!

Clever stuff happening!
