The cake being all edges is a reference to everything about her birth being an edge case. 03:41, 2 December 2021 (UTC)

It seems likely that the title of the comic is a related pun: her birthday is an edge case, and so she has an edge cake. 04:22, 2 December 2021 (UTC)

So is Hairbun officially named Emily now, sort of like how all instances of Megan are Megan even though she's only called that once? I know all the names here are just placeholders of convenience, but even then I've never know what the rules for naming are. Captain Video (talk) 06:11, 2 December 2021 (UTC)

Edge pieces on cake are often sought after because they hold more frosting, for cakes which are frosted while out of the pan. 06:37, 2 December 2021 (UTC)

I have an impression that Cueball is delighted by having only edge pieces, however some cakes edge pieces may be either sought for or avoided, depending on one's tastes. E.g. tarts have more crispy base cake content and less filling at the edges. One person may go for the filling, another for the crispy base. -- 09:50, 2 December 2021 (UTC)

So it seems the events in the comic happened on Apr 1., as the "last month" birthday could be either Feb 28. or 29. -- 09:50, 2 December 2021 (UTC)

Not necessarily. Remember, Emily can have her birthday whenever she wants, so the date this comic is set as is entirely arbitrary. 12:26, 2 December 2021 (UTC)
