May the Force be with you

We went to my nephew's birthday party on Saturday. They had a Jedi Master come and train the younglings to be Padawans. He put them through a few "tests" and then passed out rings to each child. (They were a ring of sheet metal with a smiley face cut out of them -- cute, but I worry about the lead thing....) The kids loved the rings (of course -- they always do when you're hesitant about its safety) and Sierra kept telling us how it was given to her by the "Zedi guy!"

And now, I'm sure you're all anxiously awaiting the cake photo. And here it is:

If I had more patience with the details, it could be better, but I think it turned out pretty ok. The kids loved it and they all wanted a piece of the "head."

Wow. Can't imagine what details you think you left out, it's fabulous!

And I thought i was doing ok because I can write a legible "Happy Birthday"!

Very cool...we are pondering birthday cakes around here...though with the boys I am going the easy route of putting things on top rather than making them with icing.
