I had no clue what to expect when encountering Pendleton “Pen” Ward. Seriously, I had no idea what was going to happen. Out of all the celebrities I encountered at the Emerald City ComicCon. I have to rate this as number one. It was mathematical? Pendleton Ward in the creator of the lovable show Adventure Time on the Cartoon Network. You could only meet him by winning a raffle contest with only 100 winners split up between 2 days. It would have been really sad if I hadn’t won.
I have a prepared spiel I give to every celebrity before handing them a cupcake. I’ve practiced it several times to make sure I speak clearly and reassure the celebrity that I am a credible cupcake source and there is no poison in their cupcake. However, I’m pretty sure all Pen Ward heard was “This cupcake is for you” before he took a bite. He ate Jake the dogs face right before my eyes! It was awesome! Here’s a look at that Guinness cupcake before it got eaten.
I couldn’t find an image that suited the top of a cupcake, so I made up my own based on Mr. Ward’s art. I’m not sure if he enjoyed the cupcake or not, but he was kind enough to leave me a wonderful doodle on my action figure…and mentioned an upcoming cupcake episode.
