Barter for Batter

I am ALL about bartering. Love it. You do this for me, I make you a cake. Clean my gutters? Cake. Rake my lawn? Two cakes (my yard is really big). Take my dog for a walk? Cupcake. This particular cake was a barter with my brother...over batter (couldn't resist). You can see all around this post what my brother was able to accomplish for me. He's an incredibly talented artist; he made my logo and helped spiff up the rest of this blog, to name just a FEW of the things he's done for me. I just love it.

And evidently, my brother loved our Dad's cake that I made last month because he asked for a repeat. However, he's celebrating with his employees at work today, and wanted me to put this little icon, named Johnny Tracker, on the top of the cake as part of the celebration. Evidently, all of his employees will "get it", even if we don't know what it means. Inside jokes. Gotta love them.

So again, this is a yellow spiral cake with chocolate mousse filling.

Fondant Johnny Tracker on top. Pirouettes on the outside. Just like Dad's.

Happy Johnny Tracker Day??? And thanks, Jimmy, for all of your work. I LOVE it!


  1. The department absolutely loved it! Three words: Oooh. Aaah. Yum. Thanks again, sis.

  2. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the updates to the Blog! Your brother is super talented :)
