The town of Lynden, Washington sits just to the south of the U.S.-Canadian border. It's a small town of about 13,000 people.
Lynden is also home to the Lynden Dutch Bakery (which makes a tasty short cake), Darigold (maker of cream, both ice and whipped), and of course, acres of berry farms.
Lynden just turned 125 years old recently, and to celebrate, folks there decided they needed a birthday cake — but not just any cake cake would do for such a celebration. They wanted a really big birthday cake — one that would highlight all that Lynden had to offer.
