Deep in the Hundred Acre Wood,
Where Christopher Robin plays.
You'll find the enchanted neighborhood,
Of Christopher's childhood days.
A donkey named Eeyore is his friend,
And Kanga and Little Roo.
There's Rabbit and Piglet,
And there's Owl,
But most of all Winnie the Pooh.
Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh,
A tubby, little cubby all stuffed with fluff.
He's Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh,
A willy, nilly, silly old bear!

... in a galaxy far, far away...
It is a period of civil war. Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden bakery in outer space, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire. During the battle, rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire's ultimate weapon, the CUPCAKE RECIPE, a delicious concoction with enough power to destry anyone's willpower. Bwa ha ha ha!

... and this is your life on cake!
I made this scrapbook cake for a friend to help the family celebrate her aunt's milestone birthday. It represents the big moments in her life - her faith, her husband and children, her career as a stewardess with Piedmont Airlines - and her favorite pastime - reading on the beach. But it's her lovable, shaggy dog Max who steals the show. I hope she doesn't mind that he is sharing top billing on the cake!

When it comes to goaltending, Cam Ward usually says "No"... but when it comes to cake, he says "Yes!" Here he is, in a sweet butterfly position, making a save with ease. His next play? Slicing into the fudge marble cake and grabbing a fork!
This was one of the most stress-inducing cakes I've made... not because making a sugar goalie is a new thing, but because I was making this sugar goalie for an actual NHL goalie! Whoooeee - for a perfectionist, that's the recipe for a perfect storm! I had to make his goalie mask three times before I was pleased with it. The birthday boy was Cam Ward's son and he told me that he wanted a cake "with his dad on it." The good news is that both Cam and his son liked the final result!
