Back in the good ol’ days (gosh, I feel so old saying that), Mickey and Minnie Mouse were as cool as the high school prom king and queen but I’m not quite sure where they stand these days. They have been taken over by much cooler animated icons such as Lightning McQueen, Elmo and who can forget… Angry Birds? (surely not me with all the AB cakes I’ve been doing these days! – and MORE that I haven’t even posted!)
Iconic characters seem to be so trendy these days. My nephew LOVES Cars and everything he has is from that movie (I’m partially responsible for this). He even owns Cars 1 & 2 in Chinese (clearly dubbed)… have you watched Disney movies in Chinese? They’re ABSOLUTELY HI-LARIOUS! (this would make more sense if you are Chinese or can at least understand the language). Especially the idioms! Oh the idioms. Anyway, so Zach could say something like, “There’s LIGHTNING outside” and I would run out and get him Lightning McQueen PJs, matching slippers and perhaps toothbrush/kiddy toothpaste and nightcap if it’s in stock. Clearly I’m the cool aunt that spoils them silly.
I don’t remember Mickey and Minnie being this “crazy” as a kid. Maybe we were just really sheltered or poor… or both! I remember wearing Keroppi clothes and nameless characters from not-so-popular television shows like… geez, I can’t even remember them. My brother was really into Ninja Turtles and I think he secretly still is. Hmm. I was pretty easy-going… I love bears (and still do) so I was content with anything with a bear on it. I was such a good kid
A few weekends ago, I had the pleasure of putting together a
Sophie’s mom supplied the cake toppers which gave the cake a different look than the usual sculpted sugar characters. I love change I also super love the giant, pink, sparkly bow on top of the cake! MAYBE I should’ve been more attentive in tinting the bow to match the bow on top of Minnie’s head (from the figurine) but LOOK! The shade of pink is EXACTLY the same. Whattttt… ! I just loves it when things work out accidentally LOVES IT!
