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.
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 have tears in my eyes I laughed so hard at this- I really needed that. Thanks!
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.
Yeah, none for me thanks.
(laughing) oh. my.
When you decide to do a "best of the Lawsons" section for this blog, remind me to vote for this post.
How great is this! We actually did our own similar peeps expirement. I'll be posting my wife & I's pics tomorrow.
Loved seeeing yours - my wife & I were laughing sharing in your experience.
I've made some very interesting cakes in my day that looked nothing like the magazine pictures. Props to your Mom for giving it her best shot.
Ty is eating his "chicken poop cake" now... very happily. Happy Easter, Mom!
LOL @ pooping Peeps. Looks delish!
Lauging! It looks like something my eight year old would do.
You didn't photograph the cake from its best side...or me for that matter.
My father is wondering why in the world I am staring at the computer screen and laughing so hard. Bwah! That cake...really takes the cake. Classic! Hahahaha.
I heart your mom. :o)
Oh you crack me up! My friend Angie aparantly read the same magazine. Here's how her peep cake came out. I'm just sayin'...it's doable ;)
Totally frickin hilarious. Thanks for sharing!
Oh "crap" that is just too funny!!!!
oh no . . . I am laughing so hard right now. . . oh no, no, no. . .!!
I am looking forward to NOT having to see this!
Your poor mom...
