Behold, the Pea-Pod–the pea-green ’76 VW camper bus the girls in my book (REUNITED, Simon & Schuster) drive on their cross-country road-trip. Only in birthday cake form. According to the makers of this masterpiece (my husband and 7-year-old son) the idea came from the younger chef. How sweet is THAT? He also advised me not to eat the Lego wheels, just in case I was tempted.
My son was only six when our family went through what can only be called a “Cake Boss Phase,” and at the time, I wondered if I was being a bad parent by letting him watch a show with bleeped swears. In hindsight, it was a f%$#-ing awesome decision. Best birthday cake ever.
