on my third birthday.
We've gotten good
at sharing the day.
We come up with great cake ideas.
My favorite design so far
really bothered our mom.
Anatomically correct human heart cake:
red velvet cake with black and red icing,
four lobes and a few arteries and veins.
Dad did a great sculpting job on that one.
We turned 22 and 19 that year.
I found the cake especially hilarious as I was in Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy at the time. Grossness warning: this class involved bringing a freeze-dried pig heart home over Thanksgiving break to study for my final exam. Mom found it repulsive, which of course made it more fun to have around. :-)
