More than one kind of wonder

One of the blogs I follow just for the sense of wonder it engenders is The Cake Blog. LJ featured it in their spotlight a while ago; it's a blog where a baker regular posts photos of some spectacular and edible works of art. Talk about artistry! That guy is amazing! He can make a cake look like a satin pillow or a pretty much anything he wants. He sure puts my Barbie-doll cake from my 9th birthday to shame!

A recent entry told me there is hope for today's kids. The birthday boy wanted the solar system, kinda sorta to scale, on his cake! Nice of him to let Pluto stay on, don't you think?

p.s. Happy Chinese New Year, everyone! Be sure to check out the Google doodle for today (click here if it's after the 7th)
