The cake she made to go with it was absolutely spectacular! She called her cake the Tower Vine Cake. The outside was covered with purple and green buttercream frosting made to look like vines and leaves and flowers, and the inside was a swirl of vanilla and chocolate cake batter (we call it 'Marvel Cake'...mostly because when I first invented it many years ago, I called it 'Marble Cake', but I seem to still speak with my b's and v's sounding a lot the same, so the kids all thought I said 'marvel' and it's stuck). Yum! She did a 'Marvel'-ously fantastic job!!!
And now, we're off to watch 'The Man in the Iron Mask' to compare it to the book we just read. I seem to remember liking the movie as a kid, so I'm SURE it's better than the book, which was seriously depressing.
