Dictionary Cake

This was a picture for "The Shelf Elf Looks It Up: in the Dictionary." When the book was printed, the little cards in front of the cake had the IPA pronunciation symbols on them -- as in, here's how to pronounce "ee-KID-nuh." (I don't know IPA and I don't have a copy of the printed book right now, so I can't show the symbols.) Anyway, cutting up a cake was the only way I could figure out to show pronunciation of a word. (Doing pictures for a book about the dictionary was not, let's just say, E-Z.)
