Pinterest! My New Obsession!

So, have you discovered Pinterest yet? I just started pinning (a little late to the party, as usual. I'm not what the techies call "an early adapter")and I can see all kinds of ways it's going to come in handy. Just like a real inspiration board, you can "pin" inspirational images onto boards you set up so you can keep all the cool ideas you come across in one place. You can also "follow" people or boards that you find interesting. I've set up boards for craft projects, cake ideas, Christmas ideas, and lots of other things. It's awesome!

Donkey Kong Cake

Earlier this summer I made a Donkey Kong birthday cake for my brother-in-law's 30th birthday. I was fairly happy with the way it came out, but I should have made all of the figures smaller. Once I had made Mario so large, I realized that meant that Kong had to be HUGE! Oh, well. I also think Mario looks a little more like Warrio.

It was good practice for modeling figures in fondant, anyway, and I'm told the cake was delicious.
