Great Cake Day take 2

A big thank you to my fabulous husband for getting the fully fat-laden cream cheese in spite of the fact that he can't eat any.

Please note the slightly pomegranite colored icing.

I know, you're saying "um, Trish, that's sort of coral colored." To you, I say "Fuck you." I have been a slacker barren bitch and havent gone to get the proper thread so I didn't have it handy for a color comparison. And too much food coloring tastes funny. It's in the color family. Deal with it.

It's obviously not to scale. However, please note the accuracy in the double headed & double tailed sperm. Just like my husband makes.

Oh. And I also apologize for the darkness of the photos. My less-than-year-old camera suddenly will not take pictures with the flash on. If I try, it flashes at me to check the battery. (Which is fine & fully charged.) I'll send it in to be replaced one of these days.

Apologies over. Here's my take on an infertility cake.











*added shortly after submitting the previous entry*
You know. Going back and looking at the pomegranate thread, it looks far more burgundy than orangy which is how I remembered it in my brain. So then I went to look at an actual pomegranate (which I've never eaten) and realize that indeed, closer to burgundy. Color me stupid. But burgundy would have required mucho red food coloring, so even if I had realized that, I wouldn't have made it that dark. Cause red food coloring tastes like ass. So. Um. Just pretend. Thanks.

What a great idea! You are the only one I've seen that put little sperms and an egg on the cake. Very creative!

This is hysterical. I love it. And I hope you served it in public.

I tried to make a pomegranate-themed cake a few months ago. It is so hard to get the colour right. Mine looked magenta. You win some, you lose some.

they make tasteless red food coloring now. I don't know if it is actually tasteless, but they do make some.

The cake is perfect! The double-headed sperm cracks me up.

Sunny said...

You make me laugh! WAY FUNNY! How did it taste?

Trish said...

Sunny, it turned out great. I was a little concerned the cake wasn't quite done enough cause even more than 5 minutes past the suggested backing time, the toothpick still wasn't coming out clean. But I was too afraid to overbake it. Turned out great.. really moist..
I made the icing in the kitchenaid mixer I got for Christmas that I hadn't used yet and whipped the hell out of it, so it was light & fluffy and full of fat-laden cream-cheesy goodness. Yum!
