Amazing "Artsy" Cakes and a Birthday Giveaway!

It's my birthday today, and I just had to show you the incredible "artsy" birthday cakes that my best friend surprised me with last night:
 
 
She made a palette, complete with water dish and real paint brush:
 
 
...and an easel, with one of my own watercolor paintings on it! To do this, she took one of my greeting cards to a bakery where they scanned it, then printed it on edible paper using food coloring! How cool is that?
 
 
Thanks, Keri! What a great birthday surprise!
 
..........................
 
And now, I have a little surprise for one of you, dear readers.
