Cake, love, and the illegality of it all...

It's been a year already?!?

Right, time for another birthday cake. My daughter's tastes have matured since Ni-Hao Kai Lan and Ariel (don't worry, they are still her favorites). But this year's challenge started with:

I want a Gaga cake.

Everyone knows Lady Gaga. Meat-dressed, or cross-dressed, she's the epitome of outlandish. Such a wide-palette to draw from, but this was for a children's birthday party. It had to be G-rated Gaga.

Give me 48 hours and this happens:

I love my daughter and I love cake so much that I will infringe on any copyright.

The "Born This Way" font was freely available. I had to "erase" the "W" and construct a "D" from the existing title. Frankensteining my daughter's head on top of Gaga was simple enough - just have to match the brightness and contrast...

If I had better skills, I would've photoshopped in some training-wheels, pedals, and tassels on the handlebars. There's always next year.

She is my little monster.
