"Lemon cream cake with lashings of Walnut chips. Yummy! Too fattening for my liking, though I bet the baby will love it." She circled it with her red byro-pen, several times. At least THAT was decided. The only remaining problem was a model of some kind, to place over it.

Baby's First Cake, Part One

Perina Thompson sat, tensely poised, in the Living Room, at the edge of her chair.
"Well; any ideas?" Asked Johnathan, anticipating a quick reply. There was none.
"Sorry Johnathan, but I just can't seem to think of anything at the moment."
"Then, let me know when you do. And remember, it takes at least a week to order the cake, and today's the 22nd. Only Nine days to go!"
Perina sighed, sinking back into her chair. She loved her nephew dearly and felt a let-down. Johnathan rose to his feet and placed his jacket on.
"I'd better get going. It's already past 7 p.m. and Jenny will be worrying."
Petrina followed her brother to the door to see him off. The car, a silver 340-GL Volvo, was parked in the driveway. It had only recently been serviced and the new exhaust could clearly be seen. As the car reversed back, onto the street, the horn honked out aloud as he drove off home. She waved and shouted,
"I'll ring you!"
Returning indoors, Perina ran upstairs to her room, onto the bed. A magazine lay there on 'Cake Decorating.' She flicked through its glossy pages, eyeing all the pictures. She stopped at page 16.

Downstairs, in the conservatory, her five puppies lay basking in the afternoon sun. They would remain there until Perina's parents arrived from their mid-afternoon shopping session. Only two would then be allowed at a time in the car, for their regular evening drive, which normally lasted 40 minutes.
Just then, the bell rang, and they all started barking out aloud. Perina ran down, barefoot, almost tripping down the stairs, and opened the main door.
"Hello, Mummy. About the cake..."
