Birthday Cake Poll

As I wrote last week, it was Boyfriend’s birthday. So I had to make him a cake. Normally, I’m not half-bad at baking/decorating cakes. For some reason, I was just not feeling it last week.


This was essentially the content of my text messages to Boyfriend that night.
Here’s what the cake looked like:

It's all lumpy and misshapen. 
And here’s how it looked after I “decorated.”
 
This was actually my second or third attempt at writing on the cake. The frosting was not cooperative. 
And here's how I looked by the end of it:
Frosting everywhere. 

So I decided a birthday cake poll would be fun. 

What do you think of this birthday cake?

  1. Y'know, you could always buy a cake, then put it in a receptacle that makes it look like you made it. Well, you could have before you put your icing skills on display. Maybe next time, instead of "Happy Birthday", you could just write "It's the thought that counts".

  2. I think that cake looks great. Presentation is not that important to me. All I can see is something that looks like chocolate, and that's the important part if you ask me.

  3. The more frosting the better! It looks good to me, I can't do that :(

  4. I ate a birthday cake this weekend that was all presentation. It looked gorgeous. And you know what? It tasted like complete shit. I've eaten store-bought that was better.

    The moral of the story: it's all about taste, not about the looks.

  5. I always prefer ugly, yet delicious cakes. No one needs to feel bad about cutting into an ugly cake. (Also, what A Beer said.)

  6. I think the cake looks fine. You did a lot better than I would that's for sure.

  8. I went with what the fuck is that thing in the corner because inquiring minds want to know. Maybe baking isn't your greatest strength. Wait! Is there such a thing as a wine cake?

    Love,

  9. I personally love "what the fuck is that in the corner" cake. It typically has "what the fuck is this in the center" which is always a bonus.

  10. So boyfriend is only 5 years old...?

    How does a 5 year old have more facial hair than me. This is shameful.

  16. I came in after the poll was closed, but I wanted you to know that I wanted to vote for WTF is that thing in the corner. I guessed maybe a cloud, but didn't seen any sunshine, so maybe NO? These are the important questions in life, Gia. TELL US.
