Happy Birthday Godzilla!

Each year at this time I wonder why I didn’t take a cake decorating class before now.  I am fearful that one of my creations will end up being featured on on Cake Wrecks.  You see, January marks the beginning of our family “birthdays marathon.”  Godzilla always starts planning his “birthday celebration extravaganza” wa-a-y in advance of his actual birthday.

This year the plan included:

Friday:  Roller skating with our co-op, and supper out at his favorite restaurant. 

Saturday:  Bowling with the church youth group, and  cheeseburgers for supper at home.

Sunday: Presents, and Chicken parmesan for supper at home.

Monday:  Cinnamon rolls for breakfast, and cake/ice cream after Scouts.

(Don’t you like how it ALL revolves around food?  That is my boy fer sure!)

Usually, he has the cake design figured out, but this year…no.  He didn’t know what kind of cake he wanted.  So, out of desperation (or laziness) he opted for a previous design from a previous year:

a skateboard cake.

But not the same.

So, at 10 p.m. Sunday evening I am staring at a “blank Skateboard cake” and ready to go to bed.  What do you put on a skateboard besides flames and skull/cross bones?  Then it came to me:

I know the design would look better on a rectangular cake with a Barbie/Princess doll swimming at the top, but I had a skateboard.  So, by the time it was said and done this is the outcome:

Can’t you just hear the Jaws-theme music in your head?

Godzilla, you are a child of God, His treasured possession. He created you in His own image. He chose the day for you to be born. He has a plan and a purpose for your life.

1 Corinthians 1:31 NIV
Therefore, as it is written: Let him who boasts boast in the Lord.

Your shark cake ROCKS! We have best friends who love Shark Week and we bought them the DVDs for Christmas. This cake would be so much fun to share with them. You should be proud of your creation.
