Birthdays Done the Big Doofus Way

My wife is pretty handy with making the cakes. In fact, she takes the cake!!!

Thank you.
Thank you very much.

I'll be here all week.

Johnson, party of five, your table is ready.
Try the veal.

Don't forget to tip your waitresses.

But anyway...there are times when we're rushed to get to an event but we NEED A CAKE. So, what do you do? I don't bother with those over-priced store bought cakes when I can find something really nice while I'm on the road.

In fact here's a picture from one of our recent family events. Notice how careful Miss Sniz is with the knife and how my oldest daughter is learning from her technique (yes, we counted it toward Home School Credit--Home Ec 101.)

This was a birthday that no one would forget.

what the heck?!?

I've noticed you have an affinity for aardvarks...

That is so nasty! You obviously don't have enough work to do.

Big Doofus said...

crafty - I did that at home...where I don't have enough work to do. :)

Rose - It's a possum! Aardvark is tastier, but much too expensive for our single-income home.

One of the reasons I married Big Doofus was because of his creative ideas for economizing. So we don't have enough money in the weekly budget for beef? No problem. BD "takes care" of that little problem for us. Sigh. I know I'm lucky...don't be hatin' 'cause I snagged this resourceful man first!

Mmm, mmm, mmm!

I sure love me some 'possum cake. There's nothin' quite like good home cookin'.

Mmm...possum. Delicious.

This is Photoshop at it's finest.

Where are the candles?

I had a ferret cake for my birthday last weekend. The kids loved it.

Possum is an excellent choice for a casual affair. There's nothing as embarrasing as bringing in a fancy Raccoon with a laid back family gathering, unless of course you're wanting to put on airs.

What sort of frosting tastes best with Possum? I won't eat it without frosting!

(This was a really funny gag on my computer since the cake itself was "below the fold" and I didn't see it until I scrolled down. OUCH!)

Toni said...

'Zat possum? Why now, there's some good eatin'.

Scott said...

I don't mean to sound snooty, but please tell me this possum had a cream filling.
Birthday Possum HAS to have cream filling.
