Blue & Gold 2010

Last Thursday was the Blue and Gold dinner for the cub scouts along with the annual Cake Decorating Contest. Will and Rob had been working on plans for their submission for a week.
If this doesn't ring a bell for you, you need to see some Phineas & Ferb. This is a show about two stepbrothers who decide to make the most of their summer vacation. They build a rollercoaster. They travel to Mars. They add their sister's face to Mount Rushmore for her birthday. And in one episode, they pitch a toy based on their pet, Perry the Platypus. We are also especially fond of the episode where they go Bollywood and the one where they get their parents' favorite band back together for their anniversary. Will and Rob's Perry the Platypus Inaction Figure took third place and won for "most colorful".
Here's a sampling of the other cakes to be had. Top honors went to the pizza cake, with a second place for spaghetti cupcakes (which I can personally vouch for -- very realistic and very yummy). The Barbie cake gets an honorable mention for coming complete with a moralistic dialogue. When it was time to serve them, Dylan, who made it, wanted Rob to cut into it. There were pockets of strawberry jam throughout and he said "Look! It's a slasher movie! Cubmaster's Killing the Prom Queen!"

Perry was Tanner's favorite. That is the only "kids show" I enjoy watching. These were all great - but i kind of missed the bikini this year. . .
