So my son's 8th birthday was this weekend and he LOVES How to Train Your Dragon - especially Toothless. I had the duck cake due the same day and I had already bought him a toothless toy he wanted, so I figured, why stress myself out?! Instead of trying to sculpt Toothless I decided to use the toy. Yep, I took the easy way out.
He was happy, I was happy...good decision. :) (oh and ignore the uncovered cake board, another shortcut. My poor kids get the short end of the stick I'm afraid. I take shortcuts on their cakes that I would never do on someone else's!)
