  1. Yay! There is so much awesomeness about this cake, that I want to highlight some of its features. It was made by Sarah and Brooke. The pop bumpers are iced peanut-butter cups. The ramp is red licorice, given undulating height with toothpicks. There are tin foil balls, to bat with your chocolate-bar flippers, triggered by the peanut-butter-cup flipper buttons glued to the side. Nutter Butters iced in a panoply of colors line the chocolate-cake playfield.

    And there are glowing LEDs. Because my friends are awesome. :)

  2. Credit where it’s due, I just took the picture. The cake was made by Sarah and Brooke, in honor of the birthday of the wonderful Sharon (http://www.girlwritescode.com).
