Piece of Cake...

The men's ministry at my church had a best cake contest on Sunday night. And I was asked to enter.

Now, I knew going in that I didn't want to make just any ordinary cake. Anyone can submit a yellow cake with chocolate icing. No. I wanted to make a cake that was a true testament to manliness. So I started thinking about how I could combine manliness and cake. I came up with the greatest idea to ever be thought of...

The "Steak Cake".

I would make a cake that looked exactly like a t-bone steak.

I began my work on Saturday night. But, I found out on Sunday, that my cake would need to be completed and submitted by 4:30pm on Sunday. And there was just no way that was going to happen. So I had to put the dream of a "Steak Cake" on hold. Editor's Note: Don't worry. I'm still going to do it.

So, at about 2pm on Sunday, I decided to call an audible and make a different cake. I ended up making a butter pecan cake with butter cream icing topped with pecan pieces. Yeah, I know. It sounds delicious because it is.

I finished the cake at 6pm on Sunday. It was much too late to submit. So now, I have a cake. As of 6pm on Sunday evening, I had a whole cake. As of now, 10:44pm on Monday night, this is all that's left...

So, if you judge a cake's deliciousness by how quickly it moves, I suppose you could call this cake a success...
