September 10th is Katie's birthday. Last year, two months after she turned seven, she was taunted at school for being a Star-Wars-loving girl, and the geek community gave her a ton of love and support. This year, when I asked her what kind of birthday cake she wanted me to make, she replied without hesitation, Star Wars!
I ended up making two cakes for her. One is R2D2 and another is a spaceship that says, May the Force Be with Katie. Here are pictures of the cakes in progress and the final results.
Happy Birthday, Katie, and May the Force Be With You!
