Great. Now I'm hungry...


After slaving at the stove, Justin and I managed to make a cake so realistic and perfectly proportioned, that it is truly hard to tell which Xbox controller is the real one and which is edible.

Tell the truth: you're stumped as well, aren't you? Aren't You???


I thought so.

Evan's contribution to tonight's Cub Scout cake auction was much easier. A dump truck with loads of chocolatey stuff dumped all over it. Voila!

The mystery of this post is this: Seeing both of these cakes, what is the "theme" of the cake auction tonight?

Toys!

My boys would FLIP over the truck cake. :)
Great job!

Allison said...

oh they both look sooo yummy! Great job!

Marie said...

They look yummy!

Oh, and, um, if pregnancy doesn't get in the way, look for my attempt at a LEGO brick cake in mid May!!

Now I'm hungry too. I would positively kill for cake instead of - gag - the "macaroni and cheese" served by the hospital kitchen today. Where the hell is James with my cake??

Your commentary on photo #1 is cracking me up! TOO FUNNY!

And kudos to the hubby for the new job!

As startlingly realistic as the controller looks, it's the truck cake that makes me drool a little. [wipe]

And congratulations on the job!!! Have you considered Dimetapp in the Gatorade? I'm not saying it's great parenting, but you know Patrick gets to sleep undisturbed, you get to blog, the kids are well rested... Just a possibility I thought I'd throw out there for ya.

Congratulations again. It probably feels good to breathe, right?

Love it! Have you considered making cakes professionally?

Those look like they were fun to make! I am hoping to make chocolate chip cookies with Summer tomorrow. She just loves helping me.

Hannah said...

sheila said...

Boys and their toys?

Great cakes, they are both cute :)

That truck cake is so cute!

anymommy said...

Absolutely cannot tell the difference. Lol. If it's not toys, is it favorite things?

Good guesses. The theme was "What I want to be when I grow up."

Evan wants to work in construction.

Justin wants to work at Microsoft.
