Liam Brockwood had a much better birthday than you did, thanks to this lovingly crafted and entirely edible Plants Vs. Zombies cake. I haven't been this jealous of a seven-year-old since 1981.

Liam's father, Ted, sent us to his Flickr page in order to foster jealousy over his child's birthday cake. At least I think that was the reason. It might have been pride or something, but jealousy is definitely what I'm feeling, just like back in 1981 when my neighbor had an Atari 2600 and I was still playing with Smurfs.

SMURFS!

Furthering my argument for Ted's desire to instill jealousy is the last line of his email: "Every Zombie, Pea Shooter, etc was edible chocolate."

Edible chocolate zombies? You might as well give up on birthdays now, Liam. It doesn't get any better than that.
