Birthday Countdown

Just about a month to go-and I still haven't planned out the Birthday cake. It will be difficult to out-do last year's, but I suppose that's what's expected.

Danny's rather taken with the whole Martian/Space Alien thing, though he makes a distinction between "good" and "bad" Martians. The ones that abduct people and probe them-very bad. As Danny so eloquently put it:
"I prefer nice Martians."

Yes well, don't we all?

Right. So I'm thinking a flying saucer cake-I have large round pans and then I could bake the top layer in a bowl. Maybe little green men cookies walking down a slab of chocolate for a ramp? Anyone have ideas that don't involve wiring the whole cake with LED lights?

How did it get to be the middle of November already?

Judging from your baking plans, it sounds like you'll be close to the shape of last month's Balloon Boy silver balloon shape. So how 'bout a Balloon Boy cake, with maybe a photo of Danny peeking out of the undercarriage with a small caption balloon saying something to the press?

[This post's verification word is "crunts," which sounds particularly naughty.]

At first read I thought you were suggesting that my baking is making me close to the shape of a balloon.

I must be the only person in America that didn't see that saga unfold on TV. I never actually saw a picture of it, or the kid.

"Crunts" would be a great name for a punk band.
