An Ace of Cakes by Chicken-Yuki An Ace of Cakes by Chicken-Yuki
If folks out there find the blatant inability to cook an endearing trait, then Miles is in luck: she can cook pretty damn well when she puts her mind to it. (And I mean no contradiction by it. That’s precisely how she’d feel. ;) )

Weird as it is, this is our scrappy “lone wolf amoeba” armed with a cake with flame-designed frosting on the top. It’s likely strawberry because
1.It’s her favorite
2. It’s not made as often as Chocolate or White cake, by my understanding.

In-story, I’d say the spade has become a personal symbol for her because it’s considered the “suit of swords”, and she seems to really like swords in a non-phallic way. Otherwise, why else would she be using laser swords as her weapon of choice while running around as a bounty hunter? Also, I think it really fits her odd interests in mafia and rat pack culture. (It may not be THE rat pack, as Planet Earth is a “fictitious place” in her universe, but Planet Canvas also had its share of talented lounge lizards back in the day. :) ) The recent meaning the spade’s starting to develop just happens to bring a grin to my face as to how well THAT suits her, too.

As I never understood the whole cake thing, I looked into what I could, and all I could confirm is that it never started off from that whole “Portal” thing as much as some would suspect. Heck, I’m still not entirely sure about its humble beginnings, other than the statement that it would be better than sex to some.

Guess that makes some sense. Just ask Mario and Princess Peach. XD

…excuse me for my sad attempt to draw cake. :(

LOL! I think it's so funny when a cute-looking character swears. Like when my then 3 year-old sister dropped her cookie on the floor and "G*dd@mmit!"

Then I feel as though I've failed a tad in my portrayl of Miles. She's not exactly supposed to be "cute" here, but I guess I can deal with it.

...though I gues my second image of "crazy face" Miles may rectify this.

On the other hand, I could link you to some drawings of her as a child, but I feel that might be pushing it. ^^;

Oh, well, I guess she could be called "cute". She'd likely be called so in-story. It would just unnerve her in a strangely non-tsundere way...

To be fair, cakes are easier to bake than they are to draw. :XD:

Would've been easier just to go with the cake slice. ^^;
