Ate the cake off the floor

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
I am a hobby baker, and bake for friends and family ( hope to one day have my own business). And last week was my birthday. My 3 year old asked if I was going to make my own birthday cake and I said no, that I was too tired today. Well she decided to make me a cake, (with daddys help). My daughter decorated it with flowers my husband helped her cut out ( all while I was at work). When I got home, she ran to the fridge and pulled out the cake, and started singing "Happy Birthday" , at that moment, the cake slid to the floor. Tears immediatley filled her eyes and she ran to her room. I felt terrible for her! At that moment, I grabbed four forks,and told my daughter it was still perfect and my husband, my 9 month old , 3 year old and I sat on the floor and ate cake from my floor. (Freshly mopped by the way) It made my daughter feel much better! No use crying over spilled cake!

Thanks! I told a friend and she said "thats disgusting!" Well she doenst have kids, and doesnt realize that throwing that cake away would have CRUSHED Grace. It was very yummy, even off the floor.

LOL.. people without kids will never understand that feeling of wanting to make it all better no matter what. In all honesty the floor isn't a totally gross place and you did good mom!! How sweet of her to make you a cake because you were too tired and a huge WTG for you and your family for making her feel better.

We were at a High School Football game a few years ago and watched a cheerleader carry a large sheet cake to where the other girls were waiting at the sides of the stands (out of site of most people except those of us on the end) She tripped and dropped the cake onto the dirt and grass.
The girls went after that cake on the ground like they hadn't eaten in a week. It was so funny to those of us who saw it. The cheerleaders did not realize anyone was watching them gobble up the cake!!

Let's face it - not ALL of the cake hit the floor - only part of it! The rest is fair game IMO! My kids are in their 20's and I guarantee I'd be on that cake today as fast as I would have if they were age 3. Actually faster - they both love to bake like me - and they're very good at it!

I don't have kids, but I know that I would do that for my nephew in a hot minute! Shoot, I'd do it for my mom if she went to the trouble and that happened!

Happy Birthday!
"Cake or death?" "Eh, cake please." "Very well! Give him cake!" "Oh, thanks very much. It's very nice."
"You! Cake or death?" "Uh, cake for me, too, please." "Very well! Give him cake, too! We're gonna run out of cake at this rate."

Sorry, but that is simply not true about all of us. We have no kids and that is by choice. Because we don't have kids does not mean that we don't have hearts. I worked for Pan Am and had some UMs (unaccompanied minors) on board. They were terrified. I would have done anything to make them feel better and I did the best that I could. Unfortunately, Pan Am did not train us for this sort of thing, but I think that I did fine. Anyway, at the end of the flight one man asked me how many kids I had. When I told him none, he did not believe me. He said that he thought that I must have had a "bunch" by the way I comforted the kids.

I highly applaud this mom for thinking so fast on her feet. I think that alot of people would have just seen the mess on the floor and not how it was affecting the child. The cake that she so lovingly made for her mommy was ruined and on the floor. She nust have been crushed and what mom did made that hurt go away probably immediately. She will probably remember this kindness for the rest of her life. HUGE, HUGE kudos go out to her. You are a super great mom in my eyes.

Oh, and cake on the floor? I bet that alot of our floors are cleaner than some of the counter tops in some/alot of restaurants.

BTW, great story and Happy Birthday.
