Presenting: Wally The Were-Platypus!

You've waited with bated breath for two whole weeks, salivating at the thought of a one-of-a-kind Were-platypus cupcake. You loved the idea soooo much, you voted for Wally over the incomparable Captain Jack Sparrow, driving the good Captain to his rum bottle and this writer to the edge of Crazydom.

A Were-platypus is, of course, far more kick-butt than its more tame counterpart--the simple platypus. The Were-platypus is a vicious creature, consumed with blood lust and driven by the need to teach all would-be-water-villains a lesson they would never have forgotten had the Were-platypus been gracious enough to let them live.

He isn't.

He's on a mission. Think Jaws is the worst that can happen to an unwary swimmer? Think the Anaconda is the stuff of nightmares? Think again.

Without further ado, I give you Wally, the Were-platypus.



He looks good from every angle.



What Wally sees.



I can only take credit for baking the cupcake and providing the chocolate sprinkles for fur. My incredibly talented hubby did all the rest. He really, really didn't want me to give him credit for this one. Really didn't. I don't know why.

Another incarnation of Wally is here on Shannon's blog.

Long live Wally the Were-Platypus!

  8. Also...I can't HELP noticing that there are no other were-platypi (or is it platypuses) that were entered before the deadline. Does that mean my pitiful coconut blobby guy wins by default? (Or are you still bitter that this is partially my fault in the first place?)

  9. Keena - Lol. We'll be making a Captain Jack cupcake next. But I believe more were-animals are in our future!

    Shannon - Yes, you win by default. And yes it is YOUR fault. lol But he is cute, isn't he? I'll email you a list of five books from my stash for you to choose from.

  10. You were driven to the very edge of Crazydom, yet at the last moment, you were able to resist actually being thrown out of Crazydom, right?

  11. Ha, ha. As the reigning Queen of Crazydom, it would hardly be sporting of me to abandon my subjects.

  15. AWESOME JOB TO MY BROTHER-IN-LAW!!!!

    Excellent idea, although, I'm sure if Captain Jack had been voted, you would have labored to do it all on your own.
