Y'know what's appetizing? Giant purple octopi. What? They are! Well, they are when they're made outta cake, at least. This one, made of vanilla bean sour cream cake and classic vanilla frosting delighted a young girl on her birthday.

Game Summit is a 3 day meeting of the geeky minds here in Ottawa, where folks get together to paint miniatures, yell at strangers they're playing Munchkin with, and wage war with tiny plastic demons vs tanks. It's a GOOD DAMN TIME.
Red Velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting for a client all the way in Australia. She asked that some cupcakes be delivered to her boyfriend here in Ottawa "looking like they'd been injured by Cupid's arrow." Genius, that one.
