Edible clay? Ooooo

My husbands birthday was a few days ago, anyone that knows me knows that I love birthdays (not my own of course haha), in my household we not only celebrate birthdays but we also do birthday eve and believe me, we all milk it for all it's worth. This year I got a little crafty with my husbands cake. Just to give you some background info, my whole family goes caving and my husband and oldest son are both on the cave and cliff rescue team for our county. Well obviously that's exactly where my mind went when I came up with this.
I wish you could see the sparkles :o(

Cave accident! Call rescue! (haha you know I had to play with it)
 I mixed 2 cakes mixes and made the cake marbled, the caver and formations are made of rice crispy treats and covered in fondant. It was soooo yummy.

My hand has been giving me trouble lately, I tried to get a descent picture so you can see my knuckle.
That is a knot that has come up on my hand, it looks like another knuckle and hurts when I work too much with my hands or if I put pressure on it. I've had problems with that whole knuckle area of my hand since my unfortunate run in with a stubborn goat, he tried to head butt me and ended up pinning my hand against a pole. I've been trying to take it easy hoping that the knot would go down, no such luck.

I've hatched some new birdies!

It's been a while since I made any of these babies. I'm glazing them now and they will be fired in my next kiln load.
