Pastries for the lovelorn.


Well, it’s another night of -5 F temperatures and the sap ain’t running in my neck of the woods, so it’s as good a time as any for a bit of head-scratching, baffling cake humor.

Our eldest daughter turned to me yesterday evening as we were finishing up something at church and said, “Oh, Mom, did I show you the pictures I took a couple weeks ago of these weird cakes?”

Here they are:

magnet cake

lonely hearts cake

Um, what occasion exactly is being celebrated here? I’m laughing in a baffled sort of way, trying to imagine any scenario where either of these would be the appropriate thing to buy.

And what personalized caption could one possibly add to either one?
