Haha, I used to wonder about this myself, and then tried cake decorating. Now I understand that the challenge and joy of creating a fun cake is often as important for the decorator as receiving it is for the...uh...receiver. I mean, I know DD would have been just as happy with a toy on top of a cupcake from Vons, but gol' darn it I wanted to make that cake! We did see the movie and she loves the book and screams "Remy!" every times she sees an ad or poster, so I wasn't doing it JUST for me lol. But I think the reality is, my daughter was just my excuse to be able to make it
. I am really impressed by the talented CC'ers who, even if they don't have a cake order or special event, will go ahead and make a cake just for the sheer pleasure of it (and thank goodness they share the pics with us).
As for Remy, I too thought it was funny that even with all of that abuse, he still can't seem to wipe that grin off his face
