Go Fish

It's FREEZING here! All of a sudden we've found ourselves in the middle of January!!!! Seriously, the horses' water buckets froze solid yesterday. If this is any indication of what lies ahead for us this winter I'm running away to Castaway Cay!

Luckily the kids and I have found one (unlikely) way to forget the chill outside...

Let them eat "cake"

For those of you who don't know (and obviously have never read a word of this blog), I have a warped sense of humor. And no day is complete without checking in with my favorite blog-god List of the Day. But wait, before you click be forewarned that this site isn't safe at work, at church, with your parents, around the kids, and probably inappropriate for woodland creatures.
Anyway, thanks to LOTD I've spent way too much time laughing uncontrollably at some crazy cakes. And well, since I haven't blogged in a bit I figured I'd share some of my favorites.

Seriously, what qualifications must one have to become a cake decorator?! My guess, a pulse. maybe.

Yay for public schools!

I'm assuming someone gave birth to a kangaroo....

Hey Sasha, take it as a compliment!

You're almost as good as a real son! Actually, the asshat with the frosting bag misspelled "Stetson".

Hey Anber, quotations "marks" aren't always "necessary". You're better off "without" them.

And don't let the black lettering and black roses lead you to believe that we think you're retiring because you're due to kick the bucket any day. By the way, what the heck is she retiring from, Stealer's linebacker?!
The misspelled "retiremet" was a cute touch.

Um, Jerry, something makes me think they don't mean it.

Hell yeah! Myjiantbirthday is my favorite holiday!

And yet another reason to never order a cake online. I guess the baker genius however didn't spot anything odd about this one.

Oh look, Tia Delma had a Gril!

They need frosting with spellcheck!

And sometime you get exactly what you ask for... sorta.

I'm with the baker this time. Aunt - slash - Mom isn't any better.

Perhaps if this person had used air "quotes" the cake decorator would have understood.

Hard to tell, ebonics or a head cold?

What the customer said:
“So we’re throwing a going-away party for our friend, and we’d like you to write “Good luck at U.C.”, since that’s the college she’s going to. Also, she’s a big E.T. fan – you know, from the movie? – so we want to incorporate that somehow. I’ll leave it up to you; we just want something E.T.- related on it. Can you do that? Yeah? Cool! Thanks!”

What the decorator heard:
“Blah blah blah, write blah E.T. blah blah on it. Blah.”

I get a feeling this was his last cake on the last day of working in the bakery
