My son's cub scout pack has a cake decorating contest where they auction off the cakes. Everyone bids for their own cake..., it's just how it works. So I got stuck making this cake at the last minute this afternoon..., again (it's really suppose to be father and son, but they can't seem to get it together). It is really hard to decorate a cake and not eat any frosting or anything. I couldn't do it. We were putting a "flaming arrow" on this cake, and we did so with gummy candies and licorice. So, then knowing that this cake is coming home, I did not really use cake at all. It's No Pudge Brownie mix with some frosting on it. It looks kind of sad and small, but last year we got stuck with this huge white cake that I ate a good portion of. If I am going to be coerced into baking and re-buying my own cake, it's not going to be some large fat ladened cake. I plan to wipe off the frosting and have myself a piece of fat free brownie tonight. If I just prepare myself next year, maybe I will make one of those cakes sweetened with applesauce..., something with carrots and raisons. This year is a little hectic, and it was thrown on me at the last minute. I feel a little bad for my poor son tonight, taking in that tiny little "cake", but really we don't need cake.
Ugg.., I just got a call that I need to go down with the checkbook. I wonder how much we bought our cake for. This is not my favorite fund raiser. Bah humbug. I think I am just a bit grouchy today.
