The return of the cake lady

It's been a while since I've had a cake request, I was starting to think I was losing my touch, but then Terrie asked for a cake. A boob cake to be exact.

No problem! A boob cake will be, well, a piece of cake! I thought I could just make the boobs in mixing bowls like you do for Barbie's dress. Terrie wanted BIG boobs.

After Terrie made this request I got quite sick and had a ton going on so I wasn't sure I would have the time. I called our local exotic bakery and they wanted $150!! For some freaking boobs? Someone was smoking crack, looks like I'm making the cake.

All day Friday at work I'm thinking about the boob cake. Suddenly I realize, they need to jiggle! Jello jigglers! Perfect! Now I'm excited!

I get up Saturday morning, make the jello, bake the cakes to use as the base. Two round cakes for the boobie bases and one sheet cake for the torso.

I take everything to Terrie's to assemble. It's going well, I got the torso trimmed and add the jello boobs. So far so good.

Then, I learned an important lesson. You cannot frost jello. Oh, you can frost it, but in about five minutes it all starts to slide.

And also, jello jigglers are too heavy to sit on top of regular cakes. So my frosting is sliding and now, so are my boobs. Well, not MY boobs, the jello ones.

Ok, let's try whipped cream in a can. Whipped cream sticks to boobs, I mean jello, right? So we cover the boobs with whip cream and add the nipples I made out of gum drops and stick it all in the fridge because we want to surprise Mark.



It was a surprise all right. The whipped cream slid right off the jello, just like the icing and the right boob would not stay on the cake no matter what, it kept making a run for it.

I think Mark liked it anyway.



Note to self, next time use fondant.

  3. I started reading this and I thought at first, um, cute, nice, good writer, and then I kept going. Okay, I snorted hot coffee by the time I got half way down the page and when the boob started sliding off, I nearly wet myself! This was hilarious! Love it! So glad you came by my place so I could find you!
