Envelope Birthday Cake

My friend Twyla wanted a frosted envelope cake for her husband's birthday, since he works for the United States Post Office.  She wanted a marble cake with chocolate and yellow cake flavors, frosted with a butter cream.  She chose what she wanted written on top, and also a heart stamp, and lips.  We did a triple chocolate cake mix and a vanilla yellow cake for added flavor.  Joy made the stamp using food writers and a rubber stamp.  The sun and candles are made with frosting.  We tried to make the lips with a red food writer marker, but it wasn't working, so I painted it on with food coloring and a paint brush.  This was a fun cake to make!!
