It's Totoro, the character from Studio Ghibli's film, My Neighbor Totoro. Those who have never watched it, please do. It's such a feelgood film and full wonderment. Totoro was crazily hard to get right, despite being an amorphous brown lump. As with most of the baking, this was done at night time. My eyesight was failing, Totoro's eyes kept going wonky and Slaveboy was berating me about the fact that Totoro's ears weren't 'ziggy' enough. Right then.
But Potato Bottom (aka 10 year old birthday girl) LOVED it.
From this photo, you might be led to think that it's the shouty pink-cheeked one's birthday cake but we couldn't quite get her to move five inches to the left. We are still playing catch-up with laundry, diary and various others. I need to overhaul this blog as I have been fannying around with moving platforms and in the process have managed to mess up my layout. Bear with me. Promise to blog more. Somehow I think I might have about three readers though ;) - Posted using BlogPress from my iPad
