When I was small I had some great birthday cakes... my mom really went all out. There was a pink brontosaurus with wine gum toenails, a yellow Carebear, and of course, the train for my sixth birthday (I have that picture up in my lj for May 10). It's a shame that people(and by people I mean I) don't get nifty cakes after a certain age. Does anybody out there you make exciting cakes for your kids/friends?
A brontosaurus! You had (still have, I hope) the COOLEST mom.
I'm willing to bring my next birthday forward a couple of years if anyone bakes me a cake in the shape of a durmkit. They will also be will be my friend for life (though maybe I shouldn't say that if I want to encourage applicants).
