Cake Bake!

As if the day wasn't busy enough, with a full afternoon of Holiday parties and baking cakes this morning, we had a Cake Bake Pack Meeting tonight as well.

But, oh, what a wonderful night for a Cake Bake! We had some great cakes this year, and a lot of fun auctioning all of them off.

Eddie's cake was relatively simple... just a Santa form carved into a sheet cake.

Luke's required more innovation. He wanted light sabers on his (originally four, but I cut him down to two). I was shopping at Bloom for edible items (the cakes have to be 100% edible) that would serve as light saber staffs, when I came across a seven foot section of sugar cane (for only $2.90!). Hmmm... too big. Then my eye caught the German cucumbers. Perfect. I grabbed two of those, plus two Russet potatoes which are excellent for whittling into shapes, and we were set.

Here are the boys' cakes:

I fondly remember the Cake auctions in Cub Scouts. I think the favorite one I ever made was a multi-car train. Each car was different cake and decorations including an engine and caboose (I think it was 5 total cars). I believe we won first that year, it was truly an awesome sight. If only my pinewood derby went so well. If only we'd had a car for Piece of s**t car, I'd have won for sure!

That was "category" not "car" at the end there. (new comment, since I can't edit!)
