Leftover cake is so lazy, sitting around on the plate for days and days with no responsibilities. Come on loser, make me a snack!
When I was a kid, the closest I ever got to decorating my own cake was a cookie and a little tube of gel icing. I had plenty of fun with just that. Imagine how awesome it would have been if we had edible paper back then? I can't say I'm not a little jealous of kids these days.
