The cake we won was a pirate ship. The cake had already fallen apart and was being held together with skewers and so much chocolate frosting that I got a sugar buzz just looking at it.
Over night it fell apart even more. It was no longer recognizable as any sort of a ship. In fact, it looked as if I had let the children go at it with their bare hands. For today's lunch break during branding, I took the cake down where it was well received and thankfully, mostly eaten. I have only a small amount left of what has been dubbed the "Tornado Cake". I am quite certain it will be gone by tomorrow evening. This is good news considering that I baked a cake today for my Uncles' birthday. A chocolate bundt cake to be precise. This turned out sooo much better than the lemon meringue pies. I melted some of the leftover icing from the Scout cake and drizzled it over the top and then served it with blackberries. It was delicious, but I am now at my limit for cake for at least three weeks. At which point I will be baking a cake for S's ninth birthday.
