Le fete du Canada 2017
Couldn't find the orange fondant for the cheese, but hey, gotta leave something for the Mark III.
Fuck it, made all the fancy colours, but not chocolate, and then no one bothered to eat them. So, chocolate or nothing from here on out!
Perhaps a failure, ultimately, for not having the structural support of the first version, nor the brown woodgrain icing. The abundance of candy seemed to make up for that with its audience…
James Joyce, God of Love. Because he is, right?
How the heck is Daddy s’posed to make a Space Shuttle out of cake? Sometimes you just gotta ask for help… Now, when asked what planet she wanted, Noah shouted out “Uranus!” Which is funny mostly because it was a perfect “bum” joke, which she thinks are the funniest things ever, but she didn’t even get this one.

Everyone helped draw the aliens on the planet, including Mommy! You go, Mom!
Octopod cake, for no other reason than I thought it would be a challenge. But man those children are picky: “Is that Barnacles? Or Kwazi?” How much detail can you add with a gel icing pen? At least Tweak and Tunip are recognizable.
