The TMI Files. Let Them Eat Cake.
Magilla loves Astro Boy. No question about it - she has for years. For example, about 3 years ago at church during the kids' talk, the little tackers were asked who was their favourite person in the Bible.
She put her hand up and declared to all and sundry that Astro Boy is the best one in the Bible because he saves everyone.
Okay, now she's 7 and knows a bit more about the Bible and Astro's place in it (ie not.)
Anyway, for her birthday, I wanted to do an Astro Boy cake. Do you know how difficult it is to find any info about one? I'll throw a few links in at the end, so that you can see the dearth of cakes out there.
In the end, I just found a set of little figures and asked the Godmother to decorate at will. Since she's a whiz at cakes, especially for children, she did a fantastic job. The cake is a packet mix (White Wings chocolate on chocolate), with smarties and the Astro figures as decoration.
Damn it's a fine cake!
Or it was - there aren't even any crumbs left.
