An Honest Lady

Enough of the lying Chinese lady that played me the fool (I have yet to hear back from China's Premier Wen Jiabao for compensation), and let us move on to a little lady that never lies. That's right, I'm talking about a delimbed, mutilated, malproportioned highness known as Cinderella Barbie in a Cake (TM).

Annie made another of these sci-fi-movie-gone-wrong cakes for the second installment of the twins' three-year birthday. She decked this one out in the likeness of Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Annie is turning into quite the cake decorator. I might put her to work on the wedding cake circuit to start bringing in some extra cash so I can slack off more.

I must say that it was both satisfying and disturbing to carve Barbie up for consumption. When all was said and done, we all had our fill of cake while Barbie was left lying legless in a pile of smeared frosting. Very gory. I'm just glad that the movie Toys wasn't real. She would have had the girls' other toys kill us in our sleep.

was it the care bear that drove you guys to toy-torture? I bet it was.

Annie's aggression toward Barbie may very well have been motivated -and justified! - by her experiences with the demon care bear.
