I made polar bear gingerbread cookies to give out as Christmas gifts at work this year, so when my boyfriend’s sister asked me to bring dessert for Christmas dinner, the “March of the polar bears” cake was a natural.
I made this cake for a co-worker who retired as a salesperson at our office. She was often on the road and returned with Post-It notes and clippings and all sorts of things in her folders. I thought it was a fun way to point out possible adventures to come and at the same time remind her of the chaos she left behind.
Living out here in the country I have many friends who adore animals. Gordon and Natalie, who share a January birthday have various dogs, cats, hens, ducks and ducklings, bees and an 18-year-old gecko. It takes them forever to tuck them all in and I thought a birthday cake featuring them with all their animal babies might be a bit of fun.
Jacques’ girlfriend saw the cake and order one for Jacques’ special birthday. Not only does he have goats, sheep and chickens, he feeds skunks and raccoons as well. NIghty-night!
