My friends Natalie and Gordon share January birthdays and asked me to make them a cake.
I decided the perfect thing to do would be to make a cake with them surrounded by all their animals.
At first I was going to sit them on the edge of the cake, but then when my cat Nutmeg jumped into bed with me one night, I had a "eureka moment" and figured I'd make a cake looking like Nat and Gordon's bed with all their animals piled in on top of them.
Besides their big dogs Tristan and Sophie, they have three cats and a new kitten and all sorts of fancy roosters.
They also had many adventures this summer with their mama duck and 12 sweet ducklings.
The dogs got toy balls, the kitties a small ball and purple mice. (Gordon and Nat ate the mice!)
And I couldn't forget their 19-year-old leopard gecko, given to them as a wedding gift as well as Natalie's beloved bees.
All in all, one of the most fun cakes I have ever made.
Natalie loved the cake...
They both loved it.
