Together we are fierce.

You know how sometimes you put off doing the dishes for so long that your sink is filled to the point that if you turn on the faucet the water just sprays off the plate and splatters watery marinara on your shirt? That is how it starts to feel if you have a blog that you haven't updated in months, not because there was nothing to say, but because all the things there were to say were Very Important and you wanted to do them justice.

So I will not try to do them justice. Instead, I will post pictures of cake.


My fiancé, Blade, made me a giant cookie to celebrate my upcoming birthday. 

I can't look at it without giggling. He was inspired by this Marc Johns drawing of two people in a monster.

I responded with an ice cream cake to celebrate Blade's birthday, which was earlier this week.

 This is no hamburger cake, but I am proud of it. It was inspired by this drawing of a bear.
We ate our cakes with Marty (whose classy cheesecake I didn't manage to photograph due to its lack of icing cartoons). His birthday is also coming up soon. Many of our friends came for the festivities. All the cool kids got themselves born in June. Together we are fierce.
