    Hammock Birthday Cake

    Today's my birthday, and I heard through the grapevine (my 4-year-old let the secret out) that I was going to get a hammock birthday cake. The intent was to make a Ponderosa Pine forest (we live in Flagstaff, right?), but the cake wouldn't hold, so it turned into a Goblin Valley hang (after an unseasonal snow fall).

    The hammock appears to be a DIY end-gathered style, with what looks like Whoopie Slings and a top quilt. I'm just glad to see the occupant has a smiling face

    The cake was delicious, and I got a kick out of the idea. My wife's not professional cake designer, but it was the thought that counts, right?

    Its charm lies in the fact that it's anything but professional. It's the love that counts.
