Well, my dad called about an hour ago saying he has a cake job for me. Apparently he has a friend whose boyfriend just got some prestigious award for something related to earthquakes and she wants to surprise him with a cake. I guess he teaches at the University of CA. So I came up with a round cake with a destroyed city scene on top. I'm gonna make the buildings out of rice crispy treats covered in fondant, the broken road out of Oreo cookie pieces and the side of the cake is going to be a seismograph readout. Gonna be about $168 worth of work. Excited but nervous.
