The conversation when I ordered the cake for Brandon’s birthday party on Saturday went a little bit like this.
Me: Hi, I’d like to order a cake for 15 people, please.
Great Dane Baking Company: That’ll be a nine-inch cake.Â Now what would you like on it?
GD: Which one?
Me: Optimus Prime.
GD: The red and blue one?
GD: Okay, what’s the name [to go on the cake]?
GD: How old is he?
Me: Thirty seven…
GD: Did you say seven?
Me: No. Thirty. Seven.
GD: Oh. Hm. Well, I guess we won’t be piping that on the cake, huh? /laughs
Me: Good idea.
And here we are. Behold the geek glory of Brandon’s birthday cake creation.
This is a 9-inch round, 3-layer high white cake with non-dairy strawberry cream and fresh strawberries, frosted with non-dairy whipped cream.Â (Our friend Aurora is allergic to dairy so we went the non-dairy route.)
Underneath all of this big, bold, manly man decoration is pink and white, somebody’s perfect wedding cake.
More than meet the eyes, seriously.
Oh, and Happy Birthday Husband!
