kids love me.
april 30, 2008 - my nephew brody turns 5 and i am officially WAY older than i like! brody is one of my top 5 favorite people, he is blessed with a sense of humor and is oddly tall for his age...he is the boy version of me at 5! so to mark his official i'm-a-big-kid-i-can-ride-a-bike-and-go-to-school birthday, i promised to make anything he wanted for a cake (last year i made mater from cars the movie and the year before a monkey...so, he shoots high!) he chose the mystery machine from scooby doo which is his major obsession. i hobbled around the kitchen and made this even though it was not gluten-free (i accidentally had a bite) and the temperature was not conducive to frosting, here are some pictures which count as my application for ace of cakes boot camp...i need to learn some real skills, but for now i kinda fake it!
