    2. Speaking of those cakes - who made them? Those are fantastic! I love the violin and the 56bit for 56 years!

    3. Most are a collaboration between Felicia and me. However, in the case of the 56-bit encryption cake, that was Felicia and Sheila (for me). And the violin was done by Amara and me (for Felicia). We often try to tie the theme into something the person likes and the year. So one of the cakes for Sheila's 20th, had a skeleton (bones) drinking milk. Calcium is element 20. Did you see the hidden 57 on the violin?

    1. The calicos are cute but easy. We took the leftover bits of dough from our sugar cookies, chocolate cookies and gingerbread cookies and rolled them together then cut out the cat shapes.
