My best friend’s brother is the most adorable little boy in the world. He’s such a huge geek and gives me hope for humanity’s future, he really does.
He wanted a Lego Star Wars cake, complete with Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker… and I did my damn best to fulfil that wish.
Personally, I like the writing best. The cake itself I like the least, because I’ve been having a lot of trouble with my eyes lately (that’s a long story, though) and not being able to see straight, plus having horrendous, incorrectable double vision meant that the lego brickwork came out very shoddy indeed. I’ve been told to stop complaining about the little imperfections like that, though, so I guess I should do that now.
Also, take a look at Darth Vader. He’s a lovely example of what happens when you take shortcuts and use pre-coloured fondant instead of colouring it yourself… It wasn’t strong enough, and the weight of his body crushed his legs. SIGH.
