For @spandelles' birthday, this Saturday. Madeira cake with marzipan boards and details in fondant (and non-edible advertising hoardings!). The long-suffering French model cyclists are brought into service again, along with some conscripts from the kids' Lego collection to make up the audience.
(Oddly, it looks flatter in the photos; the banking’s quite steep in reality.)
Lego Just Got Told Off By A 7-Year-Old Girl
Dear Lego company:
My name is Charlotte. I am 7 years old and I love legos but I don’t like that there are more Lego boy people and barely any Lego girls.
Today I went to a store and saw legos in two sections the girls pink and the boys blue. All the girls did was sit at home, go to the beach, and shop, and they had no jobs but the boys went on adventures, worked, saved people, and had jobs, even swam with sharks.
I want you to make more Lego girl people and let them go on adventures and have fun ok!?!

“Can you describe the Ninth Symphony in words?”
“It’s the epitome of humankind. In a music sense.”
