Stormie designed it, I baked it. Stormie cut the shapes, I iced, filled and decorated the big one in the middle (roughly 12" x 12"), a white cake with cherry filling. I iced the little ones, swiss chocolate, but freaked out when I discovered that each one had its own design. So Stormie did those. This apparently represents some kind of Dharma Initiative symbol-thingy-something-or-another from the TV show, LOST! , which I obviously, unlike others in my family, do not follow. Whatever. Stormie also painted Dave an apron to match.
The cake was a fun idea, but we only went through 2 of the small chocolate cakes and about a fourth of the big cake. Now what?????
Then we have the mini-crosses I did for the kids for Easter. Years ago, I was involved in making giant ones with Three Muskateers for an annual Ladies Ministries fundraiser. Crazy days! Now-I just made a few, but they were very small, made with the new mint-flavored Three Muskateers which are teeny-tiny.
This last cake was my dad's birthday cake, a 3-layer white cake with buttercream filling as he requested, topped with cherry pie filling. Rocky kept eating the cherries before we served it, confident the red sauce would create a diversion. It was the easiest cake we have ever done.

NOTE TO SELF: Time to start using foam for creating elaborate cakes we will never eat.
