Moving out

Sometime last year secretslip applied for a job near her family in northern california, much time passed with them ignoring her. She finally decided that she hated her current living situation and since she was stuck down here she talked me into moving into a new apartment with her, alas a few months later the job up north finally got their act together and hired her away.

So I decided to give her a going away present. She'd mentioned on several occasions that she'd wanted a cake with a dinosaur on it, and that the one time that someone had tried to get her such a thing they'd had some despicable (in her opinion) pineapple between the layers.

Time passed and then my mind connected the ideas, "Baskin and Robins sells ice cream cakes with edible photos on it" and "world of warcraft had a big dinosaur in one of the zones".

I was impressed that I got to tell her that I was getting an ice cream cake but she was completely failed at guessing what picture I was going to put on it.

This was what was on the cake:

And thanks to the miracles of modern phones there's an mpeg 4 video of her reaction.

BTW, there's still some cake in my fridge if anyone wants some.

It was a little washed out, and since I got a small cake I think the image looked to be about the size of a standard photo, about 4x6, but basically yes that's what it looked like.

I got some odd looks when I picked it up.
