Let's talk about cake!

     And for once I'm not just using that as a generic conversation starter (though it's a great one. Everyone has thoughts about cake). See, the twins are having their first birthday party on Sunday, and I have been tasked with making cakes. Yes, cakes, plural. In addition to the main cake for all the guests, there will be two little smash cakes for the kids to get into. It'll be their first time having something so sugary, so God help us all. Those will just be little white cake, white buttercream cakes, so they don't get colored icing all over everything under the sun and stain themselves rainbow. But the main cake will suit the theme: Yo Gabba Gabba! 

     If you haven't ever seen Yo Gabba Gabba, you should probably go Youtube it. The first time you watch it feels like an acid trip that you're not quite sure is going entirely well, but after that it's actually pretty tolerable as far as children's shows go. They always have guest stars that are actually interesting to grown-ups (Weird Al, MGMT, Biz Markie, Andy Samberg, to name a few), so it's a little less mind-numbing than some other kids' programming. Anyway, for the party I'm planning on making a Brobee cake, since the kids seem to have a particular fondness for him. Not that I blame them, he's fuzzy and striped, doesn't let the world shame his unibrow, and eats all the time. We could hang.  

     So here's how it'll go down: 

     Hopefully it'll look better than this hastily drawn sketchamaroo that I just threw together for illustrative purposes. But you get the idea, yeah? I'm excited to see how this one turns out, so be sure to come back Monday for a look at it!
