For some reason, I just had it in my head that our friend Ross needed a birthday cake with his own picture on it. I take a lot of pictures of our friends and it was inevitable that I'd have a good, funny, non-embarassing (or really embarassing) photo to use for the top of a cake. There was the hilarity factor to consider, but also the edibility factor. What would we feel comfortable actually cutting into and eating. (I knew it would be creepy having him cut into his own face to serve up slices of cake, but I figured he was man enough to do that.)
Anyhow - if I get his permission (Thanks, Ross!!), I'll post a photo, but even without it is important that you know that the Hen House in Merriam (at I-35 & Johnson Drive) did an amazing job with the cake. The photo turned out beautifully, but most importantly, the cake (a 1/4 white sheet cake) was absolutely delicious. The frosting wasn't too sweet and the cake was moist, fluffy, and flavorful. Good stuff.
