Su Yin: "??... you mean a head?"
Cute Japanese voice: "YES! A head! with his face!"
I have a handful of Japanese friends and they really are the sweetest most adorable girls I've met. I really love how they are easily excitable and always so gracious with thank yous and kind compliments. Tamaki; had made a cake order for a cake meant for her boss's birthday last weekend. She works at a Ramen (Japanese noodle) bar where her colleagues had pooled together cake money to celebrate their boss's birthday with a cake.
She had sent me an email with a photograph to aid me with the cake design. I used the photo as a guide to create a cartoon-ey version of his face.
I guess after she had seen Mayumi's doll cake I've done; she thought another "head-cake" would be cool. I still did a 'face' but decided to change the concept around a little this time; with the head edible instead of it being made out of Styrofoam core.
She was pretty happy when she saw what I had done; I hope her boss was delighted as well. Might give her a ring later tonight to see how the party went.
