I am trying to figure out how to make a Brobee cake (green monster) for Gonzo's birthday on Thursday and I have found a few examples online. I promised my friend Erin I would go for it. She - and now many others - want proof.
I am also pleased to announce that I found a Monchhichi! Gotta love eBay. It is a real one. I did not have to fly to Japan. Monchhichi has been my pet name for Gonzo (aside from Gonzo) since she was an itty bitty thing. Little thumb-sucking monkey girl. I bought it immediately - it is vintage, new in box. Only afterwards did I think about how quality testing for children's toys has changed markedly over my lifetime. One lead dipped Monchhichi won't put her in the hospital, right?
