Chicky Mug Shot

My friend Gordon, after many years working in the government and most recently in downtown Ottawa, decided to pack it in and go back to what he really wants to do: live on his farm with his lovely wife Natalie, enjoy his chickens and bees, and go back to practicing criminal law.

Natalie asked me to make him a cake in honour of this big move. But what to do? Then it hit me! Immortalize my favourite of their flock (the poor, bottom-of-the-pecking order Chicky) in a mug shot.

The little chick protesters were a later brainwave...and they make me laugh every time I see them.

I hear Chicky's become a stool pigeon.

Well that's different. ;-) Nice texture on Chicky, and really cute protesters.

What a wonderful cake! And the little chicks are the "Icing on the Cake", so to speak!

The little chick protesters are hilarious. Ah, youth - always taking up the cause of the underchicken!

Attica! Attica! Oh my, the best cake ever and how lucky were we to get to devour it? The chick protesters were the icing on the cake (well, not literally, ha ha!)

The little chicks are still lined up on our kitchen windowsill, and I laugh at them every time I see them. Thanks for a FANTASTIC cake (and a fun evening!)

Okay, that's pretty funny. I read Margie's "Icing on the cake" comment after I posted mine. Great minds and all that!
