cake mishap & giveaway winner

Before I get to my giveaway winner...let me share with you something I received for my birthday.

A little background...I mentioned last week that my parents used to always get me a cookie cake for my birthday. For a number of years that cookie cake would have a frog on it. I used to love frogs when I was younger. As tradition, my mom still gets me one for my birthday and sometimes it will have a frog on it. Friday when I went to visit I was greeted with this....

I asked my mom "What is THAT?!?!"

"Um, I told them a frog", she said.

A frog? Really? Who is Great American Cookie Company hiring these days? Whoever drew this needs to cross off cookie artist...or any artist for that matter...off of their potential career dreams.

I shared with my Facebook and Twitter friends and received a variety of responses, such as...7

"LOL! Submit this pic to www.cakewrecks.com" (You bet I did Erin!)
"it looks like a combination of a mouse, darth vader, and a ghost." (Thanks Meg!)
"Yikes...I was thinking more like a Billy goat!" (Maybe the person knew a Capricorn is a goat? Doubtful.)
"Demonic goat?" (I love my family)
"It looks a little like a praying mantis if the goat's horns are eyes." (Amy is so creative)
"That's amazing!!!! (And by amazing, I mean terrifying!!!! Wow!)" (Couldn't have said it better Kristen!)
"I was thinking the sloth from Ice Age!" (Not sure about that one...)
"It's Picasso's frog" (I don't think it's quite crazy enough to be Picasso)

Hey...at least it made for a good blog post and memorable birthday!

And now for the winner of my giveaway....
