Every week we're delighted to receive plenty of your cakey homages, wreck-creations, and fan art. And, from time to time, I like to both encourage this behavior and share the giggles by spotlighting a few personal favorites. So let's get right to it, shall we?
First, a nod to Katherine S. for her version of the world's best baby shower cake:
Carmel C. went the extra mile with her Carrot Jockey homage and eschewed the plastic jockeys for handmade ones:
I think I like it.
Amber A. celebrated her three-year-old daughter's birthday the old-school way:
Usually I only showcase cakey homages to this blog, but Sarah Jane J.'s recreation of the famous cake from Hyperbole and a Half was simply too good not to share:
Next, from our very own J Rose - the genius who brought you that playable dress-a-wreck program - here is yours truly, dressed as a Hogwarts student, and getting a Howler from an irate wizard for making fun of cauldron cakes:
And because I like to remind the world that I am, in fact, a stellar role model for children, here's a sampling of artwork made entirely with child labor:
Someone get this girl to design us a greeting card line, STAT.
Next, a fine art piece brought home from school by 5-year-old Claudia S., and sent in by her mom, Susan:
Au contraire, my misinformed friend!
Or maybe just say how cute she is in the comments.
And for those of you desperate for back story, Colleen T. says,
"Ever since my mother-in-law pointed out that my baby has a natural Mohawk, I’ve been dying to strip her down and sit her on a carrot. The other day, I got my wish!"
