Napoleon’s friend Pedro wants to ask the most popular girl in class to the school dance which leads to the following exchange:
Napoleon: [referring to the dance] Who are you gonna ask?
Pedro: That girl over there.
This scene takes place in chapter 9 of the film – the title of this chapter? Date cake. Yes, the cake is the star! Here are our three heroes - Napoleon (left), Pedro (right), and Cake (held by Pedro):
In homage to this scene I now refer to ‘building a cake’. Pedro must be quite a skilled baker as it’s a tall and impressively decorated cake – from the height I’m guessing it has layers.
This shot shows the message iced onto the frosting - Pedro hearts Summer:
Unsurprisingly, from Summer’s nonplussed reaction, Pedro doesn’t get his date. Am I the only one thinking she must be hard to please? If this cake didn't sway it, what would?
Frosted layer cake, built by Pedro to win the girl of his dreams, CAFTA salutes you!
