|It's an upright piano! I swear, it was supposed to make her smile!|
Honestly, I was just trying to make a little upright piano out of cake and icing, and it took a Tim Burton turn somewhere around the time when I ran out of brown food coloring to make the rich, wood tones of the Baldwin piano she always played growing up.
It was supposed to be inspirational...a throw back to the old days when she'd stay up late practicing after my brother and I went to bed. Instead...it turned out kindof...um...sad.
|Idea: make "happy birthday" look like piano keys|
Execution: um...I don't want to look anymore.
But I love you, Mom! I really do, and I'm sorry your birthday cake wasn't all it should have been. Next time I'll stick to primary colors and pastels. Promise!
