After being completely hoodwinked with a proposed double-date night of Skillet and bowling, I unwittingly stumbled into a surprise party my friends had thrown for me at The Garage. It took me recognizing four faces to figure out what was going on because I’m that sharp. I was able to catch up with many wonderful friends and actually bowled a personal best of 157 (if it’s a fever temp that would kill you, I call it a win), but for me, the real stunning part of the night was the cake Kellyn made. Holy hell.
The Hobbies not Jobbies cake was a three-tiered chocolate-and-buttercream masterpiece that sported several mountains (made of rice crispies and coated in marzipan), a rock face, a river, a lake, trees, edible rocks, and snow. In each of the little biomes was a figurine with my face glued on it, representing each of the activities I attempt to juggle. Stunning is an understatement and I couldn’t bring myself to cut it. Kellyn parsed up the cake that tasted as good as it looked. Check it out:
