Once again, I wanna say that I just take the pix, the baker in the house did all the amazing work you see here, not me. So we noticed that in all the Internet pix, you got Kit-Kat bars surrounding the cake. But since we are doing a rainbow cake, it's gotta be pretty tall for the different brightly colored layers to show. That means we can't use Kit-Kats cos they are too short. We hit the supermarket candy aisles searching for substitutes and finally decided to go with Kinder Bueno bars.
Also, instead of a sponge cake, we had to bake layers of pound cake as we were afraid that the weight of the numerous M&Ms would cause the sponge to collapse into itself. Well, the baker did her usual work in our tiny apartment kitchen and as you can see, it turned out beautifully. The birthday boy loved it, the other kids freaked out over it and all the adults took photos of it.
Time to geek out with an update on the fake Lego minifigures scene and it's a doozy! It's Marvel's Fantastic Four with a giant-sized Thing! I kinda doubt if we'll see any official Fantastic Four Lego minifigures before their movie next year. Plus with the troubled relationship right now between Fox (who owns the movie rights to the FF) and Marvel, I don't think an official Lego set is even in the works. But thank the Master Builders that the folks in China came up with these fake ... I mean, customised Lego minifigures! They even came up with 3 different costumes or colored pants that the Thing wore over the years as a member of the Fantastic Four.
What size pants does Thing wear?
