Domestic Goddess Failure: case study 1

If you have read the about me blurb at the left it mentions I am a 'domestic goddess failure'.

What does that mean exactly?

It means when Mr H was forced by the girls to pick a cake from the AWW birthday cake book, you all know the ones I mean, he picked this one:




It requires a special metal bowl that you cover in glad wrap fill with ice cream, freeze, then remove from that special bowl and use lots of ice magic.

I dont have that special bowl.

I dont have time to work with melting icecream and grated chocolate and all the special little tweaks this cake needs.

But never say this Mummy does not deliver a hand made cake to celebrate birthdays at the Huey House.

Da Dahhhh!







Echidna in all his glory.



And healthy too, no need for all those extra chocolate biscuit sticks.

So that dear readers is just one of my domestic goddess failures.
Hope you all laughed as much as we did eating it.

  5. This gave Joel an asthma attack! It is so freaking awesome. It is exactly the kind of thing I'd have come up with. There's a reason art in high school was a freaking nightmare for me...

  11. Tee hee, I love your cake! Looks tasty.

    I have made it clear from the get go that I do not make special cakes, I make cakes from a box and everyone will love it or there will be no more cakes made!

  18. This made my day Claire ... absolute pisser! I can assure you I won't make the cover of Family Circle either! I've married into a big family and everyone seems to make cakes etc with ease. The pressure is stifling but even my cheese on toast would surely turn into some squashed undiscovered animal replica. Thank you so much for sharing this and love how the family enjoyed the attempt no matter what. From another happily failing domestic goddess wannabe!

  23. That is HILARIOUS! I just love that you own this. Me? I'd be in a puddle declaring myself an utter failure (because nothing I create would live up to my own self-imposed standards). Oh wait a minute. This isn't hypothetic...it happens every year. Sigh.
