Best. Birthday cake. EVER.

Last night was the 2010 CSSF Short and Novel Workshops gathering where everyone gets to know one another, and where we talk about how things work in the workshops, logistics, and theory. It also coincided with my birthday this year, which is about the time my first novel ARCs are being printed, so Jean (and others, I hear) made me this awesome cake:



That's James Gunn smiling behind the Cake of Awesomeness™, and me trying not to let the wonderful cake slide off its tray. Did you know good bakeries can take an image and use frosting-jet printing technology to transfer the image to edible goodness? Check it out:



Thanks, y'all! Okay, now I must head up to the dorms for lunch with these kind folks, and then the Workshop officially begins!

Best,
Chris
