Celebrating with Edwin

Big day across the ocean today: my good friend Edwin is celebrating ONE YEAR of daily photos in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. Isn't that fantastic?
Happy birthday KLDP and congratulations Edwin!
I've rushed to this cake shop, Sweet Art in Paddington, to choose a cake for Edwin. Which one do you think I should take? Pluto the dog, the three-tier all white very formal one, the flowers and stripes, or the very cheeky Superman handbag? Quick, help me chose and I'll bring the cake to the party!

C'est un grand jour de l'autre coté de l'océan : mon ami Edwin célèbre aujourd'hui un an de photos quotidiennes à Kuala Lumpur en Malaisie. Bravo Edwin et bon anniversaire a KLDP !
Du coup je me suis précipitée dans ce magasin spécialisé dans les gâteaux pour grandes occasions, Sweet Art à Paddington, pour lui acheter un gâteau. En France, on s'intéresserait surtout au goût mais ici on travaille avec une génoise de base et tout est dans la déco sur le dessus... autre culture ! (est-il besoin de préciser que je préfère nos pâtisseries ?) Mais bon, allez, vite, on choisit un gâteau et on se retrouve là-bas pour la fête ? Lequel on prend ? Le chien Pluto, la pièce montée blanche, le multicolore à fleurs et à rayures, ou le très coquin sac à main de Superman ?

My apologies for not getting back here sooner. First, thank you for stopping and commenting and asking questions about cameras. I left you a long reply back there under your comments.

Thanks again.

To answer your question about my St. Pat's Day photo, the photos I posted were from a smaller, local parade last weekend. The big parade in Manhattan will be on March 17.

I like the traditional three tier cake. :-)

But we should all wait for Edwin to choose.

My favourite cake shop!!! Oh Nathalie, how did you know? Did you know they once mad a Kermit and Miss Piggy in a bathtub cake? It was fabulous!

Oh... Poddy's right. I'd like the Superman handbag. It's so macho and campy at the same time. :)

Nathalie said...

Oh Edwin, I'm delighted that you enjoyed the cake.
Just like Pod and the majority of the voters tonight I feel there was only one possible answer: Superman's handbag;

Achieving a full year of posts is no mean feat so you definitely qualify as a Superman, and then there's an allowance for the feminine in you, plus I was sure you'de be one to enjoy the twist !

Dsole said...

So happy anniversary to Edwin!
And this is really a truly cake?? This superman handbag is "eatable"?
That's agreat!

~tanty~ said...

Oh, I was late. Edwin has already chosen his cake. But I do think that Superman's handbag is suitable for him. So, happy anniversary Edwin. Thanks Nathalie for sharing the cake :)

Bill said...

My vote would be the striped one, I'm into volume.

freelancer said...

J'adore le sac Superman ... mais j'imagine mal l'homme d'acier avec ce sac au bras ;)

Abraham Lincoln said...

Sorry I am too late. I would have "guessed" Superman because it does take some steel nerves, I guess, to come up with something interesting every day for one year.

Thank you too, for coming to my blog and commenting about the truck wheels and my wife told me, "See, I told you I am a saint." So, she saw it.

edwin s said...

Yay! Superman cake pour moi!

Olivier said...

Comme beaucoup je vote pour le sac à main Superman...Tient pour la peine, ce midi je vais m'offrir un eclair au chocolat pour les 1 an de KLDP ;o)

Kate said...

I'm a bit tardy, but I'm satisfied with cake crumbs. Is there ANY chocolate around??

ruth said...

Rats, I shouldn't have second guessed. Nice party!

Keropok Man said...
