Does anyone out there remember when the Nintendo came out? I mean the real Nintendo. Not anything with an EX or any other letter behind it. It was light and dark grey and you actually had to put cartridges into the machine to play? Remember Duck Hunt? And Super Mario Bros? Wow I was good at those games. Now they are even cooler with whatever system they run on. There are more characters and things to do.
I had a nice lady call me in a little bit of a panic this past week. The party she was planning for her soon to be 7-year-old son had to be moved up by three weeks because of her husband deploying. And when she searched for someone to make the cake she wanted, they were pretty overpriced. Then she found me. I gave her the right price and told her that I could do it. She even dropped off figurines that she wanted to be placed on the cake and a picture of what she wanted it to look like!
So after making strawberry cakes and lots of vanilla buttercream, I went to work on decorating. Since she had given me a lot of the figurines, we decided that adding clouds, stars, boxes, and shrubs to make it look like the game.
I hear the birthday boy was thrilled with his surprise cake. I was so happy to help! I love it when things turn out so well.
