Whew! Let me tell ya, making that cake was REALLY stressful. I think I almost got wrinkles (not that I have anything against pugs and bulldogs, but I really don’t want to look like them!). The cake wasn’t THAT hard to make, I mean, how can stacking a bunch of donuts be difficult? But it was the whole process that was so stressful.
So we had initially planned to make a pineapple cake for Badtz because we thought he loved pineapples. It was a well thought-out plan. We bought the cake flour, pineapples, and a new square cake mold tin (because Anna usually makes round cakes) the day before. This morning, we started making the cake. Espresso and I got into an argument about how to design the cake, even. He wanted a simple one because he wanted it to look “home made”. Hmp, of course that “home made” look will NOT pass my standards. I mean, I’m not the resident fashionista for NOTHING! I live and breathe aesthetics and presentation! So, WHATEVZ, Espresso. I’m putting myself in charge of decorating… 4EVAH!
Anyway, we finished sometime after lunch and here’s how the pineapple cake looked like:
Perfect, right? Well, that’s what we thought. As we were admiring this work of art, Mimmy rang and told us the good (NOT) news: Badbadtz-maru is ALLERGIC TO PINEAPPLES!
Oh no, it was 5 p.m. and it was TOO LATE to bake another cake! We ended up eating the pineapple cake (ugh, I’m so SICK of pineapples now! Cappuccino ate half of the whole thing!!) as we were brainstorming about what to give Badtz. Then, Cinnamon had a fabulous idea… since Badtz likes donuts, why don’t we just stack a bunch of donuts to look like a cake and decorate it?? Genius, I say. I think Espresso was a bit jealous that he didn’t think of it first heehee (but that’s between you and me okay?)
So, that’s exactly what we did. I’m very happy how our gift turned out eventhough it was a bit late. Milk was actually the one who put the rubber duckies on top! Those were his favorite duckies. Heehee! So sweet of him!
