Celebrate Easter with a Poops...I mean Peeps...Cake!

April 3, 2010

Every year, the same thing happens...

Easter rolls around, my mother finds a nice picture of a nice cake in Better Homes n' Gardens magazine, and she decides that we absolutely must have our own version of the photo-worthy treat at our holiday celebration.

This year, the Easter dessert that will grace our table is the Peeps Sunflower cake.

Behold:


It's cute, it's clever, and my goodness it sure looks easy enough! All you have to do is take one package of cake mix, some store-bought frosting, a handful of chocolate chips, a package of Peeps, you throw it all together, and you get this:


Ten ducks taking a dump in a giant, communal toilet.

I mean really, Mom? Really? Did you really have to put the ducks ass end in? Kind of makes me feel like I'm at the Bronx Zoo. There's nothing flowery about it.

When my mother serves it tomorrow afternoon, she should be like, "Christ the Lord has risen today! Hallelujah! And please, let this cake be a reminder to get your DPT booster shot...and always use plenty of hand sanitizer...and don't feed the ducks."

Any way you slice it, my mom is very proud of her creation:


Those little poops are just so springy!

I am positively weak with laughter. Her radiant, adoring smile at the end just clinched it. At least she is very pretty. Enjoy your poop cake.
