Had an idea of making a victoria sponge cake with white icing on top then have ayu's "A" symbol cut out from a thin layer of marzipan... shame i'm too lazy to do it.

Edit: Looking at the last years entries, I don't think my sponge cake would beat them...

can we add non-food items as well into the entry? for example can we use ayumis cds or pictures along with food?

spanishfan 22nd October 2009 10:49 PM

When I saw "photography" i thougt at last! but then... making food TT_TT

I'd make something but really don't have time, if I make something it would be very simple, but don't think so.

Good luck to everyone ^^
