(the big polka dots on the window are coffee filters that we colored with marker and sprayed with water so that once they dry, they are flat and stained-glass-like)
The cake......they never turn out how they are supposed to at our house!! My friend, Betty, made the most delicious coconut sour cream cake. I was going to make one like it and add pink to the frosting and delete the coconut (sorry, Betty!).. My cake stuck to the pans (I had greased but not floured).....what a mess! So I cut the cake into squares and threw it in the punchbowl amidst layers of the sour cream/sugar mixture and the cool whip. Dave and I were very happy with the outcome--very moist and not too sweet. The kids could have cared less- they were just thrilled about the Skittles on top. You can see the recipe here for how it is supposed to turn out :)
purple + pink + food + friends= a very happy day!
I just had to laugh and feel better about my awful cakes when I saw Melissa's post - hilarious. What has been your cake disaster story? I think God allows many of these things to happen to me to make me realize I am no Martha Stewart.....like today when we bumped the table and the gumdrop tree came crashing down breaking off branches......Hey- this is real life! Parties are meant to be messy and sticky and noisy and loud!!!!
