Cakes – (This is a two-fer post) Witch’s Hat Cake and Some Anime Character Whose Name I’ve Forgotten Cake – For Meredith’s and Calvin’s Birthdays, Recpectively – 2002 (I think)

  I'll start with the hat.  Actually, I'll back up - I think I was avoiding doing a lot of piping during these few years.  I am pretty sure my carpal tunnel stuff was bothering me a lot back then, and painting with food coloring or just coloring fondant and rolling it out were easier… Continue reading Cakes – (This is a two-fer post) Witch’s Hat Cake and Some Anime Character Whose Name I’ve Forgotten Cake – For Meredith’s and Calvin’s Birthdays, Recpectively – 2002 (I think)

But to give Beth one more chance to switch over to Facebook or something, I'll put the photos after the jump.  Because I'm nice that way.
