Ask And You Shall Receive

When  I asked Max what kind of cake he wanted he said "a battlefield in the shape of a turtle with soldiers fighting on it."

Okaaay, this was clearly a job for my cake corps and my half-of-a-ball cake pan. Max had also wanted tanks, but persuaded him to let that particular idea go.With the army men there will be enough going on the cake.

It came out rather well considering the hurry I was in to get the cake completed Friday night. The only flaw was that it turned out Max wanted an orange flavored cake (a surprise for me). Otherwise everybody was impressed with the final result.

Oh and at least one of Max's guest wanted to take one or two members of the Cake Corps home, but I nixed that idea and explained these were my army men and not party favors.

I had to laugh - I can imagine the look on the boys' faces when you told them those were your army men! The cake looks delightful, and Max has a great imagination!

One boy was a bit shocked. The other knew what to expect since it he was a long time veteran of our parties.
