I’m making a birthday cake for a little girl named Ella, who turns one tomorrow, on behest of one of my oldest friends, Maricel, who is a Very Nice Person. By proximity, I therefore think that Ella must be a Very Nice Person too, so I am doing my best to make this the Most Awesome Princess Cake Ever. I will write something nice about this cake tomorrow, but right now, there’s been some action surrounding this cake that I must report on.
The green army guys came in earlier to sweep the bottom tier for landmines. I for one was relieved. No-one likes a badly sifted lump of whatever in their birthday cake.
