My daughter's birthday is today, and I'm putting the finishing touches on her cake. I feel as if my cake efforts are going backwards—this is just a straight frosting affair, and she picked "giraffe" for some reason and selected from the pictures of animated giraffes I was capable of making. The results are not TOO bad, except for the splotches. Something like inverted chocolate non-pareils would have made nice, uniform spots, but giraffes are not leopards and their 'spots' are not round. So, I have frosting splotches that look less like 'giraffe' and more like... those moles your dermatologist warns you about. o_O
Pictures later, but they will not be impressive—not like some of my previous work (click the "cakes" tag to see).
My son's birthday is in a week, and he has no idea what he wants so I have no idea what to get him! Fourteen is a difficult age, and now that he's outgrown LEGOs and has one single video-game obsession, um... \o?
