I currently have a secret stash of 75-ish Barbies stored in plastic bins in my garage that my little girls would LOVE to get their mitts on. And of course, one of the great perks in having my little princesses is that I am ALWAYS surrounded by Barbie and her cohorts. Although I don't recall my Barbies being naked all of the time!
My very close friend and client, Cveti, asked me to create a Barbie cake for her daughter, Pettia's 7th birthday. At first, I wasn't that excited about it ONLY because I knew that our local big box grocery store ALSO makes them. AND that store is the ENTIRE reason why I started my business. (If I ate another one if those cakes with the plastic figurines on them, I was going to hurl...) Cveti, an avid protester if the grocery store chotchke cake, encouraged me to go for it anyway. AND, I was happy I did!
Unfortunately, I couldn't attend the party! My luck, of course. My little protege, Alex, came down with a nasty virus. It always happens to me. My life... I NEVER get a slice of MY creations. Only that LOVELY big box grocery store cake. YUCK!
Look at everyone having fun! (Please note the beer bottles...) Happy 7th birthday to one of my favorite girls, Pettia!!
