"Say Wally, what did you do to this cake? The airbrushing looks horrible!"
"Really? Rats. Sorry, Willy. I was going for a 'spacey' look."
"'Spacey'? Two big red asterisks on a blue background?"
"Uh, they're supposed to be stars. You know, for Star Wars? See, the mom brought in this Darth Vader plate for reference."
[looking from plate to cake] "Well, we can't give them this - it looks more like a Spider Man or Superman cake."
"Yeah, I guess you're right. So what should I do? The airbrushing seeped into most of the icing, so I can't scrape it off."
"Hmmmm. Lemme see that plate again...and fetch me the scissors, will ya?"
"No problem, Wally. You see, with a little ingenuity, you really can save almost anything."
"You think they'll be Ok with the candles?"
"Of course! They add up to 13, right?"
"Then quit whining! Unless YOU want to go buy more '3's."
Monique R., clearly you already know the powers of the Wrecky side. Good work.
