Same book, different cake.
When I made a cake for The Younger's birthday, at the time I asked The Older which cake he would want for his birthday. He flipped through the book and pointed to one of the boats. That was September.
Come December, and it's time for The Older's birthday. And yes, I remembered which cake he pointed out.
Amusingly, as I was making it (I was up till 6 am making the darned thing) The Younger (who's a morning person by default) came down, saw what I was making.
“Is The Older going to [visit Dad] by boat?” he asked. I made the airplane for The Younger at his birthday since he was flying to see his Dad.
“No, he's going by plane,” I said. “But he wanted a boat cake.”
But at least this time, I remembered the sugar.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
