In these troubled economic times, people just want to save money. They shop at discount stores, quit frivolous spending, and drive teensy, fuel-efficient vehicles. Oh yes, and commission giant cakes in the shape of said vehicles. Ah, America.
It was recently the first anniversary of Smart Car’s introduction to the American car market. A celebration was held that involved a parade of hundreds of the smallest, cutest cars you’ve ever seen, and this big (but equally cute) Smart Car cake.
I wish I could take credit for the car, but my boss, Esti–fondant fairy extraordinaire–actually did all the work. I served as creative muse, cheerer-upper, and birthday-plaque-writer-oner. All vital jobs!
