Illustrator Easter Egg - Birthday Cake Brush

In the Brush palette, click the "new brush" button. Select "Calligraphic" and give it angle 5, roundness 26, and diameter 56. Instead of the normal pictures of the brush, it will draw birthday cakes. Set the sliders on the right to "random" and move them around to rotate and scale the cakes.

Very nice, but I cannot use it: cakes show in the dialogue box but won't come out while painting (or am I missing something?)

I am also willing to bet that the numbers signify someones Birthday 5-26-56. I reckon that you could find other dates that work too. I'm too tired to try now, but remember, you heard it hear first!

I don't think you are meant to be able to paint with the cakes. It would be terribly annoying if you wanted to use that particular round brush, and all you got were cakes!
