How Much Do You Bolus for 7,236 Carbs?

We made a cake for the cast party for Bye Bye Birdie. Best I can figure it was 7,236 carbs but I didn't put it on a scale. The inspiration was the play post card.

The cake was in production for about a week. Longer if you include experimenting with gum paste and making fondant.

One of Kelley's classmates drew caricatures of the play characters. Very talented young woman named Ashley, who as her senior project designed and made the leading lady's costumes. Very Cool.

Our house is covered in sugar. My shoes stick to the floor and every blood test is suspect. It was a heck of a lot of fun and like a good play it was enjoyed by the audience it was produced for and is now a memory.
