Monday 14 November 2005 — This is over 17 years old. Be careful.
Tomorrow is Nat’s birthday, and tonight we made him a swimming pool birthday cake, since he likes to swim:
The lane lines are Smarties (which it turns out don’t taste good with cake and frosting), the diving board is a graham cracker on a fun-size Snickers base. The droopy things on the left are supposed to be flags suspended over the pool, but the Starburst and candy-corn flags were too heavy for the Tootsie Roll supports! The Lego figures were created by Max and Ben, who came up with the genius idea of having partial figures to represent partially submerged swimmers.
Also born on this day: Ed Asner and Petula Clark (the 1961 pop hit "Downtown").
And the XBox! In point of fact, November 15th is considered "the last day a product can be in stores to be considered 'available for the Christmas shopping season'." So, every year, tons of new products officially ship on November 15th.
Im a swimmer also. thats soo cool.
I like making my cakes for my birthday, can i have the directions on making it.
My birthday this year happens to fall on the night of our County meet... the team could eat it afterwards.
