i almost forgot! i made my niece's birthday cake, but when i eventually found those sugar-candy frosting-topper jobbies, they all contained egg whites. boo! so, i switched tactics and found a cute polka-dot candle in the shape of a 4, and some pastel confetti sprinkles (they were small flat circles). i thought that was an adorable idea–very festive and colorful. the cake was a hit with my niece and everyone else. it was a simple chocolate cake with vegan buttercream frosting; i only brought a few pieces back home. yay!
