I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

I was asked to make an Edward Gorey inspired cake for a friend who's son turns one today and got pretty excited about it. The frosting was not as thick as usual because I didn't have enough sugar to stiffen it (how does one run out of confectioner's sugar?!) so I had to revamp the design. Luckily he is only a year old and can't quite critique it.

My gosh...you should all be on the comedy channel! He can't critique it...too funny.
You did a fine job. I love the lettering and design, too. I think you did wonderful. The tyke doesn't need that much sugar, anyway!
