The next Ace of Cakes?


My kids are still obsessed with the cake- and cupcake-decorating segments on Howdini, sometimes sitting quietly for up to an hour as they watch Betty Crocker professionals frost cakes in the shapes of pirates and princess castles and dragons.

But I didn’t realize how much Anthony was absorbing from the Web site until tonight, when we were decorating a basketball cake for my brother Steve’s birthday.

As I started icing our creation using a butter knife, Anthony tapped me on the shoulder and asked, “Mommy, why are you using a knife? Don’t you have an offset spatula?”
