The Cake of the Triforce

Kaja Foglio Eyeroller
triforcecake
Our annual school cake walk transforms the cafeteria into a terrifying and sticky zone of destruction. It's enough to put me off cake for, oh, about a half an hour afterward, at least. The kids win these huge, goopy home-made cakes and proceed to dig into them with inadequate plastic forks or, more usually, their bare hands. It's really primal, they're like lions gathering around fallen wildebeests. I, being a grouchy adult, made two smaller, more manageable cakes instead of one giant one. Thus once again I defend my title: "Queen of No Fun." Fortunately for people who (shudder) like fun, Phil helped out and made labels for the cakes.

Next year, I'm thinking 3'x4', three layers on wedding cake pillars, covered in sparklers, lollipops and plastic dinosaurs. Donated anonymously, of course.

That is an awesome cake design, and the labels are adorable! Sounds like the kids really enjoy the cake walk ^_^

With a little drawing of Mare Antoinette on it perchance?

Those ungrateful little whippersnappers! ;) If I'd seen a Zelda cake like this in my old school cafeteria, I'd have peeled myself off the wall to walk for it, then thrown all my money at the victor to acquire it!

Just got home from my own kid's cake walk - and he picked out the cake we brought! Really, if he wanted one, he could have asked!

Dem!
The word-picture you crafted about the primal lions feeding will haunt me for *days*... and I will chuckle every time I think of it! :)

In other words, a lot like when someone puts out a box of donuts in the "common area" of your average office...

Cool cake idea, FTW!

OH! That's a *fork*!!! I couldn't tell if it was a badly drawn "4" or a pitchfork or what! D'oh!
