My birthday was on Sunday and my wife and daughters made this delicious cake in the shape of a Quarriors' die.



My daughter came up with the design including the following faces:

1 Quiddity (x2) (One is the imaginary bottom of the cake.)
2 Quiddity (x1)
2 Portals (x2)
1 Monster (x1)

The monster side is pictured (I am trying to add more images to my gallery, but the loading is coming very slowly). It is 37 across the top because I turned 37.

My daughter (who designed and made the individual sides) said that it was a Questing Wizard, but then pointed to the Witching Hag die. I think she thought that the picture for the Hag was a creature rather than a pot and I think she mistook the handles for eyes (look at the picture upside down and maybe you can see the pot and steam). She is 6, so some confusion is happily forgiven.

I decided that it is indeed the 'Birthday Monster' and can be captured for just 1 quiddity if it is your birthday. The cake didn't roll very well and the table was a bit messy afterwards, so we decided to have our cake and eat it too!

Looks great! I hope your family enjoyed culling it, although too much glory in one sitting is bad for you.

I think it should be Qwerty Seven if my keyboard is telling me the truth!

We had to cull it over several days as the cake was absolutely huge (to make it cuboid). It was so big, that they ran out of cake batter and the middle was a different type of cake. The problem was that all of the glory went to the cooks rather than the birthday boy for making such a nice cake.

It's actually a cube? Well now we'll have to see the other sides.

I'm loading them into my gallery so that I don't fill the subscribers with a bunch of cake pictures. One other is in there so far, but they will be loaded within the next day. I will post again to let you know.



This gives you a good idea of the other sides. Gummi worm portals (the best kind) and a Quiddity side (also sugar paper).

Okay, the uploader was working better for me this time.



2 Quiddity side, made with sugar paper, icing and love (plus other yummy ingredients).



And one of two Gummi Portal sides, which if rolled let you draw ANOTHER cake. These were greatly sought after by my girls for their consumption.

This also gives a good view of the gummy ring around the bottom of the cake (which was apparently a 1 Quiddity side). I think dice holders should be fashioned out of gummy.

It was chocolate cake mostly with a middle section of vanilla. Again, it was too big for one batch of cake, so my wife had to make two (we also got a batch of cupcakes because of this).

If you are going to use lemon cake, I might suggest a portal or maybe a Spirit.
