Sweet Tooth

To celebrate Uncle Ryan's first week as a full-fledged dentist, I made this cake. Kind of conflicting interests to shape sugar like a toothbrush, but once I had the idea there was no stopping me. I wouldn't recommend using dyed marshmallow creme as actual toothpaste.

I'm still scheming how to successfully make a spine cake for Brad.

While we're talking toothbrushes, I'd like to mention that Ryan hooked Brad and me up with some sweet Sonicares a while back. Have any of you used one of these vibrating villians?! The first time I used it I wasn't sure I could endure the two minutes of torture. It so tickles my lips and gums! I'm used to the tickles now, but it has forever stripped me of my teeth-brushing multi-tasking capabilities. I guess I can still use my left hand to do other things but I cannot use both hands and just let the thing hang out in my mouth for a second. I've tried it unsuccessfully. I'm learning to enjoy the two minutes of meditation while staring at myself in the mirror and when it's done, I can't deny the fresh from the dentist feeling.
