This is what Daughter brought me a few weeks ago, telling me she wanted her birthday cake to look just like this:

Sure, honey. That's going to happen. Never. Because I have no skills whatsoever.

Joanne was over about a week ago, and she saw the picture. "Do you want me to make this?" she asked.

Look at the results.

See the dolphin candle Daughter's BFF fashioned out of Sculpey?

See the jellyfish and blobfish and seaweed?

And it was delicious, too. I hope you're all rightfully envious.
