Cakes – Dots – 1997


I…I…I just didn't know what to do for this one.

I didn't know the girl all that well (coworker again) – she was either fairly recently hired or a temp or a college student who'd come on as summer help.  I don't remember.  But I didn't know enough about her to come up with anything cute, and…sigh.  Maybe I was burnt out or sick of cake at that moment in time. 

I have no explanation and no excuse.

The cake was all chocolate – the bottom layer was 13 x 9, topped by two hearts – 8" and 6" – and covered in chocolate frosting. 

The decorations…they were white chocolate chips and white "candy melts" and pink royal icing flowers piped onto the candy melts.  My little index card says, in parentheses "no theme available" so I guess I figured I'd some day wonder what the hell I'd been thinking.

(Right now, it's actually reminding me of the "Pearlies" – first brought into my awareness in the movie Mary Poppins – they're the ones singing "Supercalifragalisticexpialidocious" (I don't know if I spelled that right) with Mary after she wins the carousel horse race in the whole cartoon section in the middle of the movie.)
