My first Cake Wreck...

This weekend just wen't from bad to badder. I had my first cake wreck on Saturday. I've avoided all "oops's" in the passed, and I should be glad that this "oops" happenned for kiddo's BFF - who was thrilled just the same but crap! What was I thinking??! In hind sight - I was too distracted by Lucy to even think about baking a cake but it was a distraction in any case. Originally - the sheep was upright - on legs. A half round pound cake supported by a thick plastic dowel that ran top to bottom. When the base (or legs) split up the middle, though, I should have changed course...but I din't. I also should have considered that few cakes are any match for the Kingsley Rd...Anyhow - Here is what my sheep cake looked like by the time she made it to the Party...A little tipsy and her chest split. You can see where she used to have feet...and when we cut her - she fell totally over. The end result - my first ever Zombie Sheep Cake. It went from Bad to Baaaaaah-der...ugh. Thankfully, she was delicious! :) Nex time...no legs!

Well, you can't argue the post cutting part, but I really think the sheep itself was really cute
