Tag?! Here's "it"

My like-minded va-va-va-vintage friend Stan [aka the Elegant Thrifter - familiar? You oughta be!] tagged me in a game of pic post. And I immediately went scrambling for this pic of me with one of my favorite bday cakes. Ever.

[circa, well, none of your damn business]

My mom has always had a zest for baked-from-scratch cakes. And I'm pretty sure that even at the tender age of 21, she handcrafted this charming [albeit a bit kitschy - all the more reason to love it] panda cake for my 3rd birthday. It's so absolutely adorable that I look a little afraid because 1]we'll have to light him on fire; 2]we'll have to [no mommy, no] slice him; and 3]worse yet, eat him!

But most likely, considering my fondness for frosting and the gift-unwrapping at hand post-panda, that sunny day in the 70s - I'm pretty sure I pulled it together and ate my way through a paw or two.

Now I'm turning the tag tables on a few bloggity friends - please come forward with a favorite pic as your name is called, because you. are. it.
