How to say "no" to a request

First, don't say yes. No matter how many times they ask.

Now I have to figure out how to bake a cake in the shape of a turtle between 5pm Friday and 10am Saturday.....

Yours, panicked,

You're too nice :)

Shape of a turtle. Damn, I used to HAVE a turtle as a pet. Best I figure, if you have an oval bundt pan, start with that, then build in the middle with something creamy or moussey. The arms can be short and stubby...curl the tail a little but keep it small. The head may be hard, as turtle heads are best rendered upright. Something with a ball at the end to exemplify the intended shape.

I'm sorry I'm not better at this. I feel like a doof, giving advice to the master of all masters! Either way, I hope you'll photograph the project. Sounds totally cool!
