I wish I had thought of that blog idea first, Jen.
But, I didn’t.

That’s why THIS post is not going to be about those kinds of cakes nor will it be about cake flavors. If you want to serve carrot cake at your 4-year-old’s birthday party, HAVE AT IT. No, this post is about other cakes that you just wouldn’t want to serve at any party ever. I thought I should mention this in case you start Googling “cakes” and find yourself confronted with one or more of these tasty delights.
|Unless you are inviting a ton of birds to your house to party it up, I’m thinking you’ll want to steer clear of these. With the exception of your Aunt Agnes, PEOPLE DON’T LIKE TO EAT GROUND UP INSECTS. The other possible exception besides Aunt Agnes, though, is the 80s group “Flock of Seagulls”. They’d probably love it. Source|
#3 CAKE OF SOAP
|Gathering a bunch of people together for a party and then revealing that your birthday cake is actually a cake of soap will result in lots of hard feelings toward you. Trust me. I tried it once and my Aunt Erthelene hasn’t spoken to me to this day and I totally made that up. If, however, you have a room full of foul-mouthed five-year-olds, which is often the case in this rapidly declining culture of ours (Can I get an Amen?), you may want to consider having a Cake of Soap on the sidelines.
The word “sidelines” offers a good segue to a my sidenote (and also gives me the chance to use the word “segue”) about liquid hand soap. I actually found this image above from the blog, “The Farmer’s Nest”. She shows you how to make a GALLON of liquid hand soap from one bar (or cake!) of soap. I’m totally going to try it!
#4 RICE CAKE
“Kelley, why is the cake shaped like a suitcase for a Fourth of July party?”
“Because, it’s a SUITCAKE! Get it? HAHAHAHA!!! It’s not a suitCASE. It’s a suitCAKE! HAHAHAHA!!! Happy Fourth of July!!! Where are the sparklers?”
ADDENDUM: My very first comment on this post was to inform me that there are, in fact, one gazillion to the infinite power of suitcase cakes out there. See? What I want to know is if they called them “suitcase cakes” or “suitcakes”. Huh? Huh? (If they called them “suitcakes”, please don’t tell me.) Either way, boo on me. I’m still going to make one for the Fourth of July, though. (Thanks for letting me know, Trish!)
Carry on, now. I know you have more important things to do with your time.
