Can you tell where the cake is?

Karren threw a "little man" themed baby showers for one of her best friends this evening who is having twins. The cake is on the table below. Can you tell which item it is?

Did you guess right?

Every element of the cake was edible! Yummy hammer anyone?

A Love Story

My first purse cake deserves a telling of a tender little story. I recently made a cake for the wedding of Mr and Mrs X. Several months later, Mr X was planning an elaborate birthday party for his bride, and placed an order for one of my cakes. The cake was to be a Gucci Handbag (what girl doesn't want wonna'them?!) to exactly match the bag he was going to give her on her birthday! So fun! Well, it turns out that tonight, Mrs X was rushed to the hospital and her whole party was canceled. Our chivalrous Mr X however, was not detoured! He swooped by late this evening to get the cake to present to her in the hospital room, complete with dinner and a present. He said that they would just eat the cake with some plastic forks and a couple of nurses. I love the image of a man spending well over a hundred dollars on a cake, and then digging into in with plastic cutlery...just to make sure his beautiful wife gets cake on her birthday! It's sooooo sweet and romantic!

Gamers Paradise

What is better than playing video games and eating cake?
Answer: Eating video games that are cake!

The recipient of this cake (a little boy) was so excited, he ran up to his room to get a tip for Karren (two dimes and two quarters). Karren graciously declined and requested that he open the door for her. He carefully placed the money back into his pocket and swung the door open for her. Now that is what I call a tip!

From Birth 'Till Death

This week, Karren made two cakes that represent both ends of one's life.

From a baby's birth, he or she sleeps peacefully in a crib:

As a man or woman ends their life, they slumber (hopefully also peacefully) in a grave capped by a stone like this cake depicts (although figuratively as it is an over the hill cake):
