Zelda, Zelda, have you found your cakespiration yet?? Hey, you should try your hand at that old, tacky classic, the Dolly Varden cake!
It’s a doll! No, it’s a cake! No, it’s a doll! No, it’s a disgusting, edible manifestation of the patriarchal oppression of little girls!
Feminist concerns aside, is there not something a little obscene about cutting into a voluminous edible skirt, the glorious centre of which is, unavoidably, a pair of en-caked little plastic naked legs?
This concept is less outdated than I thought – a Google image search throws up hundreds of modern variations featuring (of course) barbies and Disney princess and even Dora the explorer, looking more womanly than she’s ever looked before:
Actually though, Z, I reckon you owe it to the Glow-bug to attempt a chicken cake of some sort – what do you think???
Eeee! enough idle clucking around, I must go pack our bags; we fly tomorrow night!! See you soooon, chicken-tamers!
