Proof that Awesome Mom is not always awesome


This is a cake I made on Sunday just because Evan asked. I did not grease the pan good enough so the cake layers would not come out of the pans properly. I just mashed the crumbled pieces together and frosted the entire thing. It tastes the same but my husband sure has a fun time teasing me every time he has a slice.

My next imperfection as a parent is what Harry had for a snack this morning. What is so bad about a snack? Well if it is a large hunk from some sidewalk chalk that I left out there is a problem. I fished quite a bit of it out of his mouth (at peril of having my fingers chomped on) but he was still drooling blue for a bit after.

Some days are just like that!

And yes, cake should taste good no matter what shape it's in!

I love that Evan is old enough to ask for cake now. You should definately give Evan what ever he wants.

Hey, it's the taste (and the effort) that counts! :)

Looks yummy to me! At least you made the effort!

CHEL said...

Hey.. .at least you came up with the idea to keep it and eat it. Knowing me, I would have thrown it away.. makes sense it would still taste the same!!! :-)
The heat here really isn't that bad :)

You are an awesome mom just for baking the cake in the first place. I've had some pretty big baking disasters and yours looks pretty darn good in comparison. ;-)

Ha, ha, ha, I have two paper eaters! Oooh, boy, let me tell you, when the baby starts crying and won't nurse, I know to check her throat for paper obstructing it! And the worst part is that she wants it, so her sister GIVES IT TO HER. *sigh*

The cake looks good to me. Heck, ANY cake looks good to me. *considers baking a cake at 3:30 in the morning* Nah. Not tonight.

I am not a very good cake maker, so I cannot criticize :). Looks great to me ~ and very yummy!

Magpie said...

Cake! And ice cream! And chalk! What a combo!

Damselfly said...

Mmm, chalk! Yummy! ;)

Doesn't everyone make a cake like that at least once? One time, to be silly I wrote down that I would bring "baked bads" for a bake sale, and they did indeed turn out bad....

Amber said...

It looks better than the first cake I made in college. It fell completely so I made the indentation into a fishpond of icing. Hmmm....
