Thread: Behold! A cake!

  1. #1

    Default Behold! A cake!

    So, it is the 18th birthday of my friend's nephew next week. We'd gotten him into D&D some years ago, and he plays with our regular group. So... I decided to make him a special cake this year.

    Little shy to post this on the main forums, but I thought I'd share with you guys. I'm happy with how it came out! It's tasty too, now that it is missing a few eyestalks. Orange cake with homemande chocolate buttercream frosting. NOM!

    Excuse it not being the best picture ever. My house is pretty much a cave when it comes to light, and my camera doesn't like dark places.

    The cake is a lie!!

    edit: How long did it take to make the cake? That is one heck of cake!

    No, it's an aberration.

    (and yes I know the reference... Just being a smart-alec)

    Edit: Thanks! Umm. Most of an evening when you include baking. About 3 hours or so to frost and decorate, since the frosting was from scratch and I had to mix the colors and stuff.

    Well done!

    Now... do you eat the cake? Or does the cake eat you?

    Edit: I noticed your Dragonmark of Making title (2010 Halloween, Airship Pumpkin carving). You have quite the knack for edible art.

    hehe. Well, we're wearing it down! Only two eyestalks left and it hasn't even disintegrated anyone yet! I think having been in the fridge has slowed its reflexes. The knife and forks of greater aberration bane seem to be doing the trick.

    Tell him happy birthday from the forums. And you shouldn't be afraid to post such in general.

    Nice work.

    Nice work. I am a fan of novelty cakes. I have done quit a few, but never have I had a reason to do a cool DnD themed cake.
    there's one thing you never put in a trap if you're smart. If you value your continued existence. If you have any plans on seeing tomorrow then there's one thing you never, ever put in a trap.

    That looks yummy!

    Wish him happy birthday from me. And tell him we can continue our gaming session some time down the road as well. I'm just not sure when that will be for me. My busy schedule is kicking in this semester.

    And I'll look for you in-game.

    *hugs*

    LOL...I've seen quite a few Michiganers running around here. What part are you guys at? I'm living in Lansing now but grew up near Flint in Clio.


    And I will see what I can come up with for Halloween and make sure I share it. This will be our 6th annual Halloween party so I'll have to put my thinking cap on.

    We're down in the south west corner. I'm actually a Mainer transplant, but the hubby has lived here all his life.

    Look forward to seeing what you come up with!
