happy birthday katie!
roommate katie is an anthropologist doctoral student. since she does digs in exotic places and dissections.. i figured bones would be appropriate. but who wants a creepy birthday treat? hopefully no one. so after googling for a bit, i decided on the "kawaii" look
fittingly i also was eating sushi. in between filling the kitchen with powered sugar clouds. and yes i pick out the faux crab. the vege only sushi looked like crap and i dont trust raw fish thats been sitting in a grocery display case. plus that whole texture thing..
for some unknown reason we only have a 12 cup cupcake pan. well one 12 cup and one 6 cup. and 12 silicone cupcake cups. but those are a pain in the arse.. so i went with an 8" cake. which fell. surprise, surprise. the blue gel shit is hard to write with and i have absolutely no clue how it tastes.. but it shows up well on dark chocolate buttercream frosting

and since everything is inherently more badass in black and white...voila
