Yo Ho Ho, And A Bottle Of Crappy Cake Design
This is possibly the worst cake I've ever made (except taste-wise... it tasted like cake, and that's always good). I had a last-minute request to make a "fun cake" for a friend's birthday party, and this was happily devoured several hours later. The only picture I had was from her cell phone. Oh, well! Mixing the icing colors was the most fun.
Cake For The People
This was made for a friend's 4th of July party last summer. I intended to make the Kraft Food & Family "American Flag" cake (cake, jello, whipped cream, strawberries & blueberries to make the stars & stripes), but since I already had mandarin oranges on hand... This suited the party better, I think. The only problem was that the jello wouldn't set fast enough. Now, I'm known for being able to cook "anything" (as said in an awe-stricken voice by starving undergrads), yet I cannot get jello to set. While I waited, I despaired and drank rum. This resulted in me showing up to the party (via another driver, of course) already in patriotic spirits. Fellow patriots crowded the food table while I unsteadily sliced strawberries, and drew pictures of the flag on plates to "help" me.
Good work, team.
