Don't leave an 18 month old near a cooling cake!!

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I was in the process of making a guitar cake yesterday and my friend stopped by to pick something up. I was standing outside near the door talking to her and my girls (3 1/2 and 18 months) were right inside the door. When my friend left, I thought....it sure is quiet. I asked the older one where is your sister?/!!?? Sure enough she was helping herself to a little cake and sharing it with the dog!!!! Fortunately, I was able to salvage it, but I gave her a big "That makes mommy so sad" speech and she was thoroughly sad! Needless to say she didn't eat much dinner last night!!!!

Oh my gosh....you are lucky that she didn't give the whole thing to the dog.
Isn't it funny how kids seem to be the quietest when they are getting into trouble? icon_wink.gificon_lol.gif

I love the guitar cake. Poor baby wanted some cake.

My son did that when he was 2. I had just made a kahlua cake (lots of alcohol) and told him that he couldn't have any because it was for mommy and daddy. I went to the bathroom and when I came back there was a hunk missing and cake all around his mouth. I watched over him like a hawk (because of the alcohol), he scared me to death.

Yikes that is scary!!! Yeah, I need to make some cake for them more often. The 3 year old asked the other day, "Are Audrey and I going to get to eat some of this cake mom?" She was so hopeful, but I had to tell her no, this is for someone's b-day! I do let them snack on the tops of cakes I cut off, but there is nothing like having a cake decorated for you!!! icon_razz.gif

I bet they would love a little 6" cake made just special for them.

Me too, but I think cakes are like meals....they always taste better when someone else cooks them and you didn't have to do the work. Man, now that I am a SAHM I REALLY appreciate and miss my mom's cooking....just to have someone cook for you is so nice!!!!! icon_cry.gificon_lol.gif

I had a similar incident, except it wasn't a child but my cat. I had made a cake and it was cooling on the cooling rack and my son called and needed a ride home from work......so I decided to cover the cakes with a dish towel, when I got back the cat was lying on the cakes....needless to say I had to start over.....she had never done that before, but I had never left cakes unattended either so I learned my lesson! My children are all grown now, but still they want to pick at my cakes!

Cindymm4- I just had to laugh. The cake was probably really warm and so your cat probably thought- "Oh what a nice warm spot that my mommy left for me to sleep on.." icon_wink.gif

Just a little taste, Mom! You did a great job on recovery...the guitar looks great.

As far as worrying about the alcohol content in your cakes, after the cake is baked with the alcohol in it, it is no longer "alcoholic" since the alcohol evaporates in the baking.

I can also see my cat sitting on a cake like that, he seems to think that everything I do, I do for him! Fortunately I've been able to convince him that the table and the counter tops are off limits to him, but if I weren't here...?

This is very encouraging, to learn how much we can salvage from what appears to be a real disaster at the moment! Janice
