Sadly, the latter half of the class will be marred by the absence of disaster. This is a very rare occurrence, but the law of averages dictates that every now and then things will go more or less to plan. Do not despair if this happens, there is always some way of fucking things up at the last minute.
Here, however, we can see that the jelly has set, the icing has stayed on the cake, and the plastic tigers specially purchased are totally salvageable after a quick wipe. Everything is good.
We have cake.
We are cake ninjas. Yes, we are.
I say 'we' because now my glamorous assistants are here, things have been getting REALLY fun.
It's Easter soon. Tigers love easter.
A prudent zookeeper would wear protection, right?
That's a little better. But, tigers? Meh. Big mangy moggies. Such a downer. Can't we do a bit better than tigers?
And there we have it. A beautiful, simple birthday surprise for a very lucky little girl.
Gelukkige verjaardag Laure!
