Pool birthday cake

Monday 14 November 2005

Tomorrow is Nat’s birthday, and tonight we made him a swimming pool birthday cake, since he likes to swim:

Swimming pool birthday cake

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.

That's awesome :) I could tell what the candy corn was supposed to be... it is tough to suspend stuff like that, though. I love the partial people in and out of the water - great effect!

hey Ned, that is so cool. One of the best yet. You guys sound like you have so much fun making these cakes! (more fun than eating them?)

Hey! November 15th is my birthday too. Happy birthday to the both of us!

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.
