I Blame the Cake!


For being late…

It was my son’s birthday…my son who is all about healthy living, strict diet and working out.

Except on his birthday.

THREE bags of candy went into this cake, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips and M&Ms.  I baked and frosted the chocolate cake,  Son did the decorating.

I actually ATE some of this cake.   And completely forgot to blog! Instead I went to bed and had nightmares of being attacked by millions of pieces of candy trailing cake crumbs.  Terrifying :-)

My other two sons have NORMAL cakes on their birthday.

So here’s my question: If we feed this cake to the flying monkeys, do you think they’d still be able to fly?

    Yeah, don’t feed this cake to the monkeys. They’d be flying at supersonic speed.

    It sounds like you had a good night though. Happy Birthday to you son.

    Wow, that looks and sounds really sweet. Probably put the flying monkeys into a sugar coma.

    My teeth hurt just looking at it, but my taste buds wants to dive right in. I don’t blame you for blogging late. If I ate a piece of that, I’d be falling right into a coma. :drool:

    Must think about fat-free sugar-free… Must control urges… Mustn’t eat those last two donuts… Mmmm donuts…

    Oh, dude! Yeah. I’m drooling. If ya’ll want a non-fattening diet, I’m featuring photos of my cruise all this week.

    *huddle with monkeys* *whispers* Okay, guys…here’s the plan. Once they all dash over to Penumbra, Chuck and Bruce will grab the cake. I’ll grab the Slayers, and we’ll all meet up in that secret location. Right? Right! Break on four…

    *looks shifty-eyed* Ahem. Yes, that cake looks unfit for human consumption! Srsly! Four!

    They’ll definitely be on a sugar high.

    Wow! That looks delish! Yum! except there is no way you could have more than one piece.

    Happy birthday to your son!

    B.E. Donuts? Where??? Yummy! I havne’t had donuts in forever (although I have the Chocolate Death Cake in my kitchen so why do I want a donut too?)

    I don’t understand this “sugar-free” stuff. Is that a foreign language?

    Silver, LOVED your cruise photos!

    Great plan, except the monkeys couldn’t lift the cake! Do you know how much that cake weighs? It’s insane!

    They did steal some of the M&Ms though :-(

    Dru, I think I’m still on a sugar high. And my stomach isn’t happy either…even worse, there’s candy falling off the cake, just sitting there, tempting me.

    Ashlynn, it’s true, I couldn’t even finish my piece of cake, and I am a Champion Chocolate Eater.

    OMG, that cake looks really yummy! I bet even I, the ultimate chocoholic, wouldn’t be able to eat much of that. I’d ask you to send a piece via flying monkey, but I’d probably never see it OR them. Like Erika said, they’d be supersonic from the sugar and caffeine buzz :)

    Silver, HEY, no making off with the Slayers!!!! The rest of us witches WILL hex you! :D

    Oh Cecile so sorry your invite got lost! It’s those monkeys! They’ve been distracted by all the hunk deliveries :-)

    I’m not sure my son thinks I’m the best mom ever, LOL! But I think my boys are the vest ever…usually.

    Dawn, the cake is a little much. I tried to REASON with the Son, but nope, he wanted THIS CAKE. Whatever.

    Um, and that piece I ate today? Not my fault! I didn’t mean to eat it, it fell onto my plate!

    Glad you’re keeping an eye on Silver, LOL!
