the last of the crazy cakes



This year - doom for the three young men on vacation, boat sunk, stuck on a sugar cookie raft, the only land turns out to be a monstrous kraken and her ravenous babies...ah, yes, they always involve some sort of carnage or mayhem: invading martians, robots with world rule on their agenda, islands of oversized crabs, erupting parasitic critters, volcanos, superheroes, it's been a ride. He's 21 now and the cakes are done, crazier than the themes were the mess of a noncook, nonbaker with a dozen boxes of cake mix, food dye, and canned frosting galore. Happy Birthday, Chris.

Hi Susan. Happy birthday to your big son from me too. Wow that looks some sort of cake :>) How do you cut it??

I am a baker, but I've never made anything that wonderful! It is fantastic. And I love your words. Oh, and the header is amazing. Where is it?

Awesome, Susan! I bet your younger son loved it as well. :)

Thanks, all! The way you cut the cake? - in giant hunks for hungry young men! Only you have to be careful of a few wooden skewers holding it together.
The header was a shot of Mamaroneck, NY - getting out of my car to go to a Greg Brown concert and the sky was so beautiful - lucky me with a camera in my purse :)
