I like this cake alot

First of all, if you think that I misspelled a lot, please click here before you read on:

That's an ALOT for anyone who just needs a quick refresher.

The creative genius who wrote that nugget of awesome has been MIA from her blog for a while. I've been missing her as have many others. And I've been worried- I don't know Allie in real life, but I love to read her stuff. (p.s. have you read The God of Cake? Priceless.) Her last post was about depression, though, and that just... sucks. I mean literally, depression sucks your energy and your time as well as your happiness. And, depression lies.

Today, in light of all the crazy that's been going on around me, I decided to make a cake, just for shiggles, to decompress... and play with the airbrush. I love that airbrush. There are about a half a jillion cakes in my mind that I want to try, and so today I chose the ALOT. It came out like this:

Why are the horns pink? I'm glad you asked. The horns are pink because I forgot to make them and stick them on before I airbrushed. Then, it was WAY too much trouble to get the whole airbrush set-up out again, just for some piddly little horns, so I picked some petal dust to color them. This was the prettiest color I had. No regrets. Plus, it almost kinda matches the pink cake board. A little. If you're colorblind.

Now, I know this isn't my best cake execution. I worked fast and fun on this one. I mean, the carving took less than five minutes. Fun. I like this cake alot.

I hope Allie (and others- you know who you are!) beats her depression soon. I hope she remembers that depression lies like a horcrux. Actually, I hope that she already beat her depression and that the reason she hasn't been blogging is because she discovered that simple dog can actually do calculus on an ipad and has been contracting him out to NASA. Or something similar. 

So, for Allie and everyone else dealing with depression... for me and everyone else living in a swirling vortex of whackadoosy... I hope this cake brings you alot of happiness.
