The Web Slinger

“I was really proud of this Spiderman cake I made for my sons 4th birthday. I tried to get both Spiderman and the motorcycle he was riding on the top of the cake. Unfortunately, both didn’t fit. I didn’t realize until the party was in full swing what exactly Spiderman was doing to the cake.”

Sour Sixteen

“Our loving mother scheduled our youngest sister’s wisdom teeth extraction on her sixteenth birthday. Here she is celebrating afterwards. Cake, anyone?”

My brother must have just turned 14 or 15 which apparently means that there is no party anymore. Instead he was stuck with an undecorated cake and a chicken pox/calamine lotion covered little sister to take his picture with. Clearly, neither one of us was very happy about it.

Mistake Piggy

“This is my brother and sister Judy at one of their birthday parties in the early 80s. I don’t think my brother was aware of exactly what was behind him.”
