Funny disaster

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Well, I thought I'd post this, because it was absolutely hilarious.....well it was eventually.

I was asked by someone in my church to make a birthday cake last minute for our pastor and his wife. So, I was dying to try out a caramel mud cake recipe and RBI's recipe for white chocolate SMBC. So the plan was, layers of mud cake torted with Dulce De Leche and White Chocolate SMBC. The only problem was, I had bought a 14" board so it wouldn't fit in the fridge. I didn't think this would be a huge issue, however it was a warm day.
Anyway, the cake was made, wasn't totally perfect but it was smooth enough and it was just for taking to a bible study for us all to munch on.
Anyway, my friend picked us up and she always has the car heated up to basically sauna temperatures. So my partner had the cake in the box, sitting on his knee and we literally turned the first corner, when it slid off the board into the side of the box - not a huge huge disaster, but the icing on the side was obviously ruined. However, 15 minutes into the journey..........my partner shouts 'You have got to be kidding me' - I turn round to potentially the funniest by most annoying things I've ever seen.....I'll let the pictures do the talking. Anyway, everyone thought it was hilarious and as I pointed out to the pastor 'It's the most memorable birthday cake you'll ever have' - no one could argue with that!

The cake was delicious and everyone loved it!!!

I'm so sorry! It looks awesome though!

In related wreckage, today I was carrying an ice-cream cake across campus (I'm a college student-- no car and wanted to celebrate my best friend getting into grad school) and I caught my foot on a step and completely wiped out. My cake looked about like yours, I was covered in icing and ice cream, and am out all the money icon_sad.gif Should have made her one and saved the transport issue, but I had no time.

Oh no! I am glad that you can have a good laugh at it now and that you have a picture of the finished product before it's little accident .

Ha - the more I look at it the funnier it gets. When it completely dismantled itself for about 3 milliseconds, I could literally have jumped in front of a car, but then I literally killed myself laughing. Had it been a serious cake for a serious event though, you can bet your bottom dollar I would have launched myself of a bridge lol.

Sometimes you just have to laugh. Its all a function of the laws of physics, right?

Life's too short to make cake pops.
