Happy Birthday, Lushie Peach!

I'd like to present the Cat Cake to Lushie Peach in honor of her birthday! I hope your birthday is as special as this cake!

I love that cake! My mom made one for me for my third? fourth? birthday. I can't remember the exact age, but I do remember the cake and the house we lived in and my dad's GIANT 70s sideburns. I was the birthday girl so I had dibs on the licorice whiskers.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

I feel old now, but I won't hold it against you as I enjoy your blog too much to hold a grudge.

Thanks, Maria! I think Mom made this cake for both of us at some point - I'll have to find the pictures (slides?). Thank you for the wonderful presents, too - soon to be appearing on Food With Eyes!

Not Jenny, I'm glad I was able to provide such a vivid trip down memory lane with just one picture! :-D I'm also glad that another family took advantage of the cuteness of the Cat Cake!

Lushie Peach, I didn't realize you got this cake, too! It's been too long since the Cat Cake has made its appearance on our table. You did find a few pictures of me with various incarnations it, but they didn't scan well. You're very welcome!
