The Most Awesome Cake In The World

I haven't blogged since January? M'I bad.

Here's a story that I wasn't planning on blogging so I didn't take any progress shots:

Today is Easter. I have a big family and we all got together today for the traditional Easter Feaster and hunting of the eggs. I, of course, brought a cake. But not an Easter cake... no, I brought a birthday cake for my brother (who officially turned old on Wednesday).

We're talking about my brother's birthday cake. I wanted it to be cool. No, not just cool... awesome. The Most Awesome Cake In The World! But what does that mean?

My brother was little help:
"What kind of cake do you want?"
"I don't know... round?"
"With... like... something cool on it?"
"Such as?"

Yoda is pretty awesome.

A Yoda cake then... and since we were going to serve it at Easter, it needed to be big. And also because big is awesome.

You know what else is awesome? Airbrushing. That's purple, light blue, royal blue, and black airbrushing on there.

And Yoda. "A happy birthday must you have"

Note: When my brother saw this Yoda, he asked me, "Did you do that by yourself?"
I'm not sure how to take that.

Moving on.

A big Yoda cake is awesome. But is it The Most Awesome Cake In The World?
No. No, it is not.

How can I make this cake more awesome?

There it is.

I mean, come on! How often do you get to taste the rainbow? Literally?

Huh. Skittles, you say? Who knew?

*Special thanks to my brother for getting older.
