a tv cake? you want a tv cake?

I’d like a TV cake.” I tried to offer him some alternate ideas but his mind was made up. I had a couple of weeks to figure out how to design a TV cake. I decided to combine the TV along with the movie they’d be watching, Monsters University, and came up with this:


Not bad, right? The kids loved it too… Only mine had no idea what the buttons on the side of the screen were. Glad I didn’t decide to make an old-school shaped television!
