Sorry, I couldn't help it. Had to use that phrase as the title.  Cheesy

So here's the story:

    My fiance and I have been together for almost 6 years now, and every year since his 17th birthday I have made him a birthday cake. Well, now he's in the Army and is currently serving overseas in Iraq. When we were talking over the phone he was giving me a hard time about not making him a birthday cake this year. We like to give each other a hard time and joke around with each other constantly, but it really bothered me that I couldn't make him a cake like I'd always done. So after I got done crying over it (LOL) I was like, "wait a minute, I CAN make him a cake!".

     So I went to Hobby Lobby, got a round box and some felt and then came home and got my glue gun out! I really wanted to do felt or foam letters on there too, but I was running low on time and had to get the letters from wal-mart so they didn't have much of a selection and I ended up getting the stickers. I was also going to attach number candles with velcro, but the adhesive side of the velcro circles did NOT want to stick to the wax, and then I accidently broke one of the candles, and I ran out of time, so I'm like "oh well".

    Anyways, here's the finished project. I put his scooby doo pajama pants in there and the little card that says "You can't have your cake and eat it too!" hehehehe. I just couldn't help myself.
(Oh, BTW He's military police, and the cross pistols are the military police symbol, so that's why I put those on there.

I dare you to make less sense.

That's a really sweet idea; no better way to ship a cake overseas Wink. I bet he'll laugh (and maybe get a little misty.) I love the 'frosting' around the top and bottom edge.
