Mud Pie... er, Cake

Me: How did the potato masher get upstairs?
Supreme Leader: I don't know (she may have been gritting her teeth)
Liam: I don't know either, but it was probably stuck to my foot.



Huh? Whatever, he made me a mud cake for my birthday.



With an ocean theme. And it's a cake, not a pie. He was emphatic.

  3. My mental picture of Liam stomping upstairs with a potato masher stuck to his foot is hampered by not knowing what kind of masher you have- round or wavy- but I am managing!

    I hope you had a great birthday- that cake looks mighty fine.

  4. I love mud "cake". Although mine usually involves chocolate pudding, chocolate cake (crumbled) and gummy worms.

    But yours looks, um, yummy too. :)

    Happy Birthday!

  5. Turned upside down a potato masher would make an awesome wooden leg for a 5-year-old pirate.

    Happy birthday! Spill, Cap'n...how old are you now?

  6. I love how he qualified his statement. It must have been pretty darn probable. Nice CAKE!

  8. It may or may not have been him. Just more likely to have been him than not...

    What a lovely cake? Have you introduced him to Betty Crocker yet? I'm just saying next year could be a whole different world.

  9. A beautifully decorated cake!

    Potato mashers have a tendency to stick to feet - so that totally makes sense. Love that kid!!

  10. In a pinch, potato mashers make great metal sandals, too. Reuse....so very politically correct!

  11. Hey, I'll be Liam's lawyer...and in doing so I would point out that he merely said "it might" have been stuck to his foot. He made no admission. You are assuming his guilt with no real evidence. What kinda kangaroo court is this?

  12. A happy Birthday to you!
    &
    "...probably..." ??? That little imp! :D

    P.S.: That Cake of yours looks totally gorgeous!

  13. That's a good looking cakes. As for the potato masher, it's probably good you found it before it made its way to the bathroom.

  14. Pfffft. If you didn't keep so many potaters on the stairs, he wouldn't have to walk around with the masher on his foot. So it's your fault.

    Heyyyyyyy!!! Happy happy happy birfday! Hahaha, what a sweet boy you have. He thinks you need more fiber.

  19. How else was he going to get it upstairs? Gotta carry it somehow!

    And if I didn't say it before, Happy Birthday, Captain!

  20. My son get stuff stuck to his foot all the time: Legos, Hot Wheels, the cat. You name it, it has probably been stuck there.

    Happy Birthday!

  21. Thanks. Now I want cake, and I already feel fat. Happy flippin' birthday.

  22. This was--perhaps--the most ingenious use of a potato masher EVER! Granted, the pie isn't exactly edible, but it's the thought that counts. Right?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Duh....clearly it's a pie, even if it's in a cake tin. Come on! Hope you had a great birthday!

  24. I'm guessing my garden MIGHT look better than yours right now!!

    Happy, happy day my friend.

  25. Potato mashers are sticky. Mud "cakes" are adorable. Happy birthday!

  26. Happy Birthday! That is the most appetizing mud confection I've ever seen. Kids got talent.

  27. Happy Birthday! I think we are living in parallel universes (except for the b-day). I found the spatula and other cooking utensils in the kids closet two days ago. Sharpie marks on the table, experiments with snails. I guess it's not so bad. :)

  28. A potato mashed upstairs? Seriously is that not where we are supposed to keep them?

    Happy Birthday!
