Fantasy Factory Beer
Stacey Durnbaugh Palmer
"My daughter just turned 4 and was insistent that her birthday cake feature a photo from the label of Fantasy Factory beer, complete with a pistol-wielding cat riding a fire-breathing unicorn in front of a rainbow. Normal 4-year-old stuff. We removed the gun from the photo and substituted in a birthday banner just so the parents of all her friends wouldn't get too judgy." -- Stacey Durnbaugh Palmer
Alton Brown Cake
Jessica Lucille
"My tiny human said 'Alton' before he said 'mama.' So of course this cake was necessary. Still not happy with the writing or the sperm shaped balloons, but the picture of Alton is pretty fantastic." -- Jessica Lucille
Matt Damon in "The Martian" Cake
