The Missing Link

In honor of the 29th anniversary of my brother’s birth this past week, I am posting the cake I made for him 3 years ago….yes….once again I am sharing a cake wayyyy later than I should. Honestly though, This post is mainly for when I serve up half-assed non decorated, plain ole cupcakes to him today, I can kindly show him this and remind him that 3 years ago he got a nice cake. Plus, I’m really only thinking of him, because I’m saving all my energy for next year’s big 3-0. We wouldn’t want to outshine that one after all.

Getting back to the cake at hand. My brother is a GIMUNDOUS (yes this calls for a new word) fan of Studio Ghibli and also an equally GIMUNDOUS fan of “The Legend of Zelda

So what was a sister to do?! Cue heroic music!

shout out to Skibicks123 for your having this on your youtube channel 😀

My quest was to combine both into something awesome and really I kinda had too much fun with it if I’m being honest.

Ladies and Gents…I give you…”The Missing Link”!

The Missing Link

Now I dont know about you, but Im not too sure what Princess Zelda’s issue is here..I mean its just Link….wait…that’s not Link? Who is it? OHHHHHHH….you rascally Totoro….you tricked me!

I think the big questions we all are asking are, “Where’s Link?”, “Does he know Totoro is impersonating him?”, “Can you really save more on Gieco car insurance?” And these are all excellent questions…..that I have no idea how to answer. My guess is he got tired of saving Zelda’s butt and decided to take a little vacation, so naturally he asked his Neighbor Totoro to stand in for him for a bit so he can go fishing or maybe just take a well deserved nap. I can tell you though that I think Totoro is pretty darn convincing and I’m pretty sure no one will even notice.

This really was one of my favorite cakes from 2014 and I’m a little ashamed that I’ve been meaning to post it but I’m just getting to it now.

James, if you’re reading this happy birthday little brother who is way too much taller than me…I wish you a happy 29th birthday and I can’t wait to embarrass you with next year’s cake. (kind of like the time I did this)

Thank you all for reading and I hope you enjoy my weird sense of humor…oh and that you like the cake too.

A short time ago, in a kitchen not so far away…

I dont know how many of you know this but…

“Hi my name is Sara, and Im a nerd”

There! its out! my dirty little secret has finally seen the light of day!…

Ok, who am I kidding?! I let my nerd flag fly every hour of every day. I’m not ashamed that I know more about Marvel superheroes than coach purses, or that I’m more impressed with my boyfriend’s battleground armor than my friend’s new cashmere sweater. I have tattoos written in Quenya & Khuzdul (after studying both languages and writing them myself, might I add) and my house is chock full of sci-fi novels and action figures.  Most of all I cry like a baby every time I watch the end of “The Fellowship of the Ring” (why Boromir!? why!?) and feel elated when the rebels destroy “Death Star” number two.

So with all that being said, any time I am approached with a cake order that lets my nerdy side shine, I am SO in!

About a month ago my friend Amanda (yes, of the amazingly awesome Amanda Rose Photography) decided she wanted to have a “Star Wars” party for her son’s first birthday. On a coolness level of 1 to 10…this is about a billion. So naturally I knew exactly where I wanted to go with this theme.

Ladies and Jedi, I give you…

Baby “Star Wars” Episode 1: The Playground Menace!!

Baby Star Wars cake

Speechless? yea..I know…its really that awesome. I mean I dont mean to be all “hey look at me! I made a cake fit for a Sith’ari” but I’m just a tad bit in love with this one and I’m not afraid to say it ;]

The setting of the cake is a playground on the “Forest moon of Endor” complete with a “Death Star” play-house. Oh and before you even say it, yes, I know TECHNICALLY if they were all babies, “Darth Vader” would indeed be “Anakin Sywalker” but just let me have this darn it!

Baby R2-D2 & C-3POAt the base of the cake you can find Baby “R2D2” and Baby “C-3PO” hanging out with the little “Ewoks”.

Baby VaderBaby “Vader” has conquered the “Death Star” play-house.

Baby SoloBaby “Han” is shooting Baby “Vader” with his bubble gun

Baby Chewyand lastly we have Baby “Chewy”…who is not the least bit pleased that Mama “Wookiee” stuck a pink bow in his fur ;] (And his little doll who looks awfully familiar dont forget.)

All in all, This is at least in the “top 5” for my favorite cakes that I have made (if not number one, for at least the moment) I had WAY too much fun making it and I hope you all enjoy!

Oh and…May the Force be with you ;]
