Nothing To See Here
Our computer had a glitch. The casualty? The pictures from the birthday party. All of them. No other pictures - just those.
(If you listen closely, you can hear me screaming.)
I made a Death Star cake, for crying out loud! It was cool! The Alderaan pinata was completely awesome! Argh!
Let me describe the cake: I made a one-layer, rectangular cake, and frosted it black. It was space. We put metallic sprinkles on it, and gold and silver star candles.
Rising up out of the blackness of space was a sphere of grey-frosted chocolate cake. From a dish near the top of the sphere, six green birthday candles angled into each other to form a single point - which was really cool when they were all lit.
It was a Seriously. Cool. Cake.
And the pinata was amazing. It looked like a real planet. It was especially amazing considering that I didn't touch the thing. The kids did it all (and Jeff did the spray paint base).

Did no one else get photos? :-(
It sounds fabulous! It must be _very_ disappointing not to have the photos... (I was telling my husband about it, and even he remembered the Borg Cube cake:-) )

Oh No!! That sucks! I feel for you. But the cake and pinata sound absolutely awesome anyway. I'm going to tell the kids about it!

Ow. Truly, ow. But unlike Rachel, I'm NOT telling my kids about it. ;)

OK, as a HUGE Star Wars fan myslef, I'm torn. Do I tell my 12 y/o son about your awesome cake (in which case he will urge me to make it - and I don't need the encouragement!), or do I keep my mouth shut and just roll it around in my own brain?
Oh, what the heck, we needed a theme for his birthday this year anyway ;)
