Thank You!

Wow! Thank you everyone for the great feedback on my pole dancing teddy bear cake. Based on the reactions, I'm definitely going to make more. Which brings up two questions:

1. The base of the pole, that mixing thingy, is not stable and the pole falls over. What could I use to make it so stable that it stands on its own? For example, is there a clay that hardens on its own without having to be baked in an oven?

2. Where can I find itsy bitsy teeny tiny platform stripper shoes to fit the little bear's feet?

Give this new pole spin a new name!

Holy cow I've been on fire with the pole work since visiting that strip club last Saturday night! First that new trick I finally mastered, and now I accidentally discovered how to do a whole new spin! At DejaVu I remember one of the dancers doing a spin I like to do, only her hand positioning was different. So I tried a couple times during my practice last night to do it her way, and as I was doing so my body just naturally twisted around into a spin I never knew how to do before!!

In order to add the spin to the choreography I practice, and eventually teach this trick, I need a name for the spin. I'm sure it already has one, but I don't know what it is. So it's time to come up with a new one. There are three pictures of me doing the spin below the cut. Please choose a name for it:

What should I name this new pole trick?
