"the finder" - professionalism

my reply, finder writers, is YES.

the finder hasn't technically aired yet, apart from its backdoor pilot on bones, but one look at geoff stults, and the answer is pretty straight forward. you certainly landed a looker, lucy camden. 7th heaven? anyone? every twentysomething girl? ok great.

basically, the show hinges on the fact that the finder can find anything, anywhere, anytime. but, as i posit, it would be alright if occasionally his power was voided when it came to his clothes. like maybe there's some sort of cosmic power shift every 3rd aquarium moon in the 9th house of the sun. i don't know, but i'm pretty sure the fifth dimension sing a song about it.

anyway, i really hate this cake. as the show hasn't started yet, there were not a whole lot of promotional photos or anything to base this on. if only there was someone who could find a photo for me..... womp. womp.

also, a contact somewhat commissioned this cake, as she is going to send it to the production company for me as a follow-up to my resume. i'm seriously hoping to land an internship there, emptying trash cans and getting coffee for the assistant's assistant. you know, all that glamorous stuff. so, i took this as seriously as an interview. therefore, those are, in fact, nervous tears and forehead sweat you taste in your slice...

TOTAL DECORATING TIME: 3.5 hours + 6 seasons of waiting for booth and bones to finally get together... oh wait, this is the finder. still, hooray!

"matt" - ending of an era

made this cake in june, but let's not talk about it.

ok, well, this was a cake for my boss, matt, aka screenplay director of austin film festival. no big deal. don't be jealous. so on and so forth. this cake was a first because that is matt's face on the cake, and i gave it to matt. it was a whole new level of stalking for me, tracing my boss's nose off a facebook photo... trying to match the exact shade of blue for his deep, deep, deep v-neck tee.

but, at the end of the day, i'm very happy with how it turned out, and it was a fun birthday at the office. interns actually got to come out of the back room. after adjusting to the sunlight, i just hung around all day, doing very little work. however, it was also sort of sad because that was one of my last days working for the austin film festival, humble brag part ii. then, i got over it because i was going home to make $25 an hour, douchey brag...

TOTAL DECORATING TIME: 3 hours + 1.5 years of glorious, unpaid, long-houred interning with aff.

thanks for all the papercuts,

"little giants" - one time

so i made this cake back in may, and seeing as how it is now august, i figured i should get a jumpstart on posting it...

anyway, i made this cake for my indoor soccer team. yes, we are the little giants. yes, the little giants is a movie about football. yes, it is the greatest movie of our generation, and, probably, eternity. we've been playing under the giants name for about 3 years now, but this year we actually made it pretty far in the playoffs, so i figured, with all that extra running, we could eat a few extra calories. the cake (obviously) was super easy, but it's the thought that counts right?

also, we screened little giants during our party, and, by that, i mean half the team took a nap while i quoted the entire movie: 

zoltec (fat kid, after running a sprint) - "how did i do coach?"
coach o'shea (ed o'neill) - "i don't know son, i don't have a sundial."

classic 90's fat kid burn. classic.

TOTAL DECORATING TIME: 30 minutes + 2 hours trying to figure out what devon sawa is up to these days
