JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Tamatha Cain is well-known for creativity. 

Cain, who's won prestigious awards for her cake creations, volunteered to make the groom's cake for Tyler Southern's wedding at no cost.

"I'm a military brat, too," said Cain, whose Choux bakery shop (pronounced "shoo") is in Avondale.

Cain also has a special sensitivity to disabilities since her daughter is dating a man in a wheelchair, who the family holds in high regard.

Tyler's groom cake might be based on his passion for the Baltimore Ravens, but Cain is keeping everything a secret.

One thing is for sure, Tyler loves chocolate. Just "infuse" it with chocolate and he's good, he said.

The community has rallied to help in "Operation Thumbs Up," named because Tyler has no ring finger remaining for his wedding band. The marine, a triple amputee injured in the line of duty, plans to wear his wedding band on his thumb.
