A Surprise Birthday Cake

I got an email from a client who was looking for a 3-D cake for her husband's birthday. He's a building block fanatic, apparently, so she wanted a Han Solo with a goatee to make it look like him.

I emailed back and asked where it would need to be delivered to, and she said that she lived off of Old Coach Lane, and did I know where that was? Considering I live on Old Coach Lane I told her yes, I thought that would be pretty easy to find.

So it turned out that she lives up at the top of my street, and it also turned out that her husband drives the school bus that my kids used to ride. So for the last two weeks, whenever I happen to pass the bus I've been slowing down and trying to see what his goatee looks like so that I could get it right. He probably thought I was just a pest who was blocking his way, but there was a method to my madness.

I delivered the cake this afternoon, and I hope that he liked it. He wasn't around because he was, to quote his family, "out back in his Lego shack." And yes, I asked, and yes, he really does have his own Lego shack.
