K8 has a name change today. He is now K9. Although, I will always think of a dog when I type that so I may need to think of something else. V and I had a lovely afternoon off together. We ran errands in the morning and then spent the afternoon decorating K's cake. It was our first attempt at sculpting a cake and covering it with rolled fondant. It actually turned out rather well for a first attempt. We made the cake shaped like a whale- it is a family joke from bedtime when V will often flop on top of K tickling him talking about being a wormy bed whale. Ok, I guess you have to be there for it to be funny. Anyway, we made a wormy whale- yes, it had gummy worms inside it as well as for the spout.

Here I am, presenting the finished cake to a delighted K9.
K loved it! "It is so weirdly awesome' I think was the direct quote. Anyway, it was a wonderful afternoon working with V, laughing and being silly while we tried to figure this out. J14 has now demanded something equally 'awesome' for her birthday. Hmm, I have 2 months to figure that one out.
