Let There Be Cake!

No, not the theoretical fifth book in the Uglies series, but Cinco de Mayo birthday cake! For me! Because it is my birthday!

by Baby Cakes and Confections

Rather more steampunk than Cinco de Mayo, but that’s how I rofl.

I’m taking off today, of course, but I’ll be joining whoever wants to chat in the next Forum Meet-Up:

Saturday May 8th
Midnight in London
9AM (May 9) Australia Eastern
Here at the WesterForum.

And now I’m off to party on the bottom of the sea. Seriously.

Ciao for now . . .

  1. That cake is AMAZING.

    I will be pretending that it is my b-day cake as well since I am also a Cinco de Mayo birthday. This year I have an Alice in Wonderland theme going as it is also National Oyster Day and that makes me think of the Walrus and the Carpenter.

  2. Wow!! That is the most beautiful cake I’ve ever seen! *__* A steampunk after my own heart… ♥ I didn’t know today was your birthday, Scott–it’s the same day as Kodomo no Hi (Children’s Day) in Japan! (not to mention Cinco de Mayo and St. George’s Day (Eastern Eur)) If you read/watch Hikaru no Go, May 5th will have another great significance in your heart too~~ ^^

    In any case, have a very happy birthday and many joyous returns!

  3. happy b-day scott!!!!!!!

    that cake has got to be made of fondant.

    i graduate in 30 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And shmamit I can’t go to the next meet up!!
    /If Baby Cakes is the same one as in New York City, then our birthday cakes will share a creator. Baby Cakes is the BEST.

  5. ahMAZING cake! lol happy cinco de mayo! happy birthday scott-la!!! 🙂


    -Lizzy-wa OUT! 😀

  7. Happy Birthday Scott-la! That cake looks soo good right now! Care to share? ;D Anyways, awesome cake, and have a good birthday(:

  8. Happy birthday, Scott!!! 😀
    Have a great one! Also, I hope your underwater stroll has nothing to do with arguably fictional underwater cities called Rapture. Because that one didn’t go so well, let’s just put it that way!

    Hoohoo. (I’m going to see if anyone got my reference…)

  9. That is just about the greatest pic ever…. 🙂

    Happy b-day! Mine’s in four days- day before the chat! Whoop!

    And I absolutely love steampunk cakes…wish I could learn how to make them.

  10. Wait! Why did I not realize this earlier, and why did I not ask?!

    That cake… is it EDIBLE? Woah, my goodness… if it is… if it is…!!! *brain meltdown*

    …………….just imagine what the Ultimate Bubbly-Making Pretty Cake would look like?!

  11. Happy Birthday, Mr. Westerfeld! Awesome cake. I’ll try to catch you in the forum!

  12. Hope I can get on the forum at that time.
    That is one amazing birthday cake. It’s beautifully done. I wish I had a cake like that.
    I do believe I said happy birthday on facebook yesterday but I shall wish you a belated birthday here too. Happy belated birthday!

  13. Happy Belated Birthday Scott!
    It’s such a wonderful thing you were born. The world would be missing so much awesome.

  14. That cake is so amazing! tayuygirl is right, it IS wonderful you were born! Geeks everywhere (and non-geeks, but especially geeks) would miss out on so much if you weren’t born.
    Happy Belated birthday Scott!


  16. ohmygosh!!!! i JUST realized the meaning of the title and first line of this post! hehehehehehhehehehehehehehhehehe! CAKE! ahhhh i do love our shinanigans (:

    -Lizzy-wa OUT! :mrgreen:

  17. I’ve seen that cake before, I swear! I think it was on deviantart.com.
    Or did you get something similiar to it?

  18. Midnight? I will gladly suffer 🙂

    By the way, happy birthday too, Scott! *can i have some of that cake?*

    I wish a very happy birthday to the greatest author on Earth.

  19. Happy birthday again (although this one is a bit belated), Scott-sama! We sure do love you around here.

    Nice photo editing, by the way. I wanna go party under the sea o:

  20. Happy Birthday Scott! Love the steampunk cake! Oh, and to Meggie-wa, do you mean that underwater city from Bioshock? If so, I agree-don’t go there Scott. Man, I ish such a geek. XD

  21. OMG. HOW DID I MISS THIS?!?! (noooo…)
    hope you had the greatest, most bestest b-day everrr.
    oh and the photo? FTW.

  22. Ping to Meggy: YESSS!!! That’s exactly what I mean! Yay!

    Ping to Scott-la: How was this cake? What kind of cake was it, aside from deliciously Clankeriffic?


    Also, I just realized how totally wrong my Pretty name is. So sad-making. I’d need “L”s in it for “-wa” to work. But oh my god, “Meggie-wa” is just so much cuter than “Meggie-la”!

  23. Happy belated birthday!

    Also, that cake is seriously one of the freakin’ coolest things I’ve ever seen.

  24. Oh noes! A lopsided bow! I’m not very good at wrapping gifts.

    Forgot the party confetti.
