why I like pie

("Happy birthday, honey! ...sorry your cake looks like a homicidal maniac.")


A slight slip of the hand, the eyebrows go on crooked, and all of a sudden you'd got the most pissed off birthday cake ever. No amount of ice cream could hide that evil glare...all Raggedy Ann needed was something stabby in that pink hand and I'd probably still be having nightmares.

But I'm sure the cake was delicious - my mom's a terrific baker. And look! Party hats and noisemakers! My childhood was perfectly lovely, aside from a few buttercream mishaps.*

(And, yes, my mother will probably yell at me for posting this. I hope you all appreciate it.)

*the purpose of this post was to make you all go read Cake Wrecks, the funniest food blog on the web.

No - her Mom did not yell at her. But her Mom did get fright at 5 am this morning when she was checking the site before getting ready for work. I gues I will never live down this cake or the pumpkin pie without sugar.
I do hope you enjoyed.
PS - this was, I think, my first try with piping icing. I've gotten a little better. Have Breda post pics of some our recent cakes. We Rock :)

I like pie too. I see what you mean about your cake...Mom gets major kudos for all that work, though. My best/worst cake story is a cake I baked for my son's birthday party. The whole thing fell apart when I took it out of the pan. It came out in chunks. Hmmm... Long story short, I iced and decorated the cake pan I baked it in, sang 'Happy Birthday', took some pictures then brought the iced pan into the kitchen. I then took the chunks of cake and served them up with a glob of icing and some ice cream on top. The kids never noticed! Hey, we do what we have to to get through... BTW I'm a 'gun chick' too...
Like your blog.
