We borrowed a small round cake pan from a friend, and I made the first prototype cakes last night. Today, I tried my hand at icing - piping and everything, which I've never done before. I think it actually turned out kind of cute! Note that this is not the design for their actual cake. I just wanted to practice with the piping and the different tips and stuff. So this is a kind of cake decorating "sampler," if you will.
This evening, we decided that we really needed to test our prototype. Jason volunteered to be my test baby. He really put a lot of effort into making this an authentic test. I have to admit that I was surprised.

|A bit apprehensive at first.|
|The "nose" test. The icing was still a bit too firm from being refrigerated.|
|Then he really dug in!|
|I think he likes it!!|
