Eating leftover birthday cake with a Bob the Builder fork

Eating leftover birthday cake with a Bob the Builder fork

posted in Uncategorized |

Leftover birthday cake, you ask? Who had a birthday? I did! On Sunday I turned 30. And then my husband followed my spectacular day with his own birthday blowout on Monday, turning 33 (Fortunately the term ‘blowout’ has a completely different meaning when applied to a 33 year old, as opposed to a 1 year old). We figured out once that, had we been born in the same year, we would have been born at almost exactly the same time because of the time zones. *cue twilight zone music*

Because our birthdays are only a day apart, I only ever make one cake. Although I do like cake, no one really *needs* two cakes. I suppose no one really needs a cake at all but our three year old daughter now associates birthdays with cakes and she simply couldn’t let the day pass without a cake being made. I also discovered that she was horrified that Daddy wasn’t getting a present with paper on it, which of course she would have graciously removed for him because his newly-acquired geriatric state would have made it impossible for him to do it himself.

Anyway, back to the theme of the post…

I’m sitting here at the computer, enjoying a piece of birthday cake while the kids peacefully slumber during nap time. Today being one of those days when for some reason all eating utensils have disappeared from their proper drawer, I am forced to eat delicious chocolate birthday cake (honestly, the best I’ve ever made) with a Bob the Builder fork. This is one of those forks that come with the plate, bowl, cup, spoon set. And you know what? It’s completely useless. The tines are so dull I can’t actually pierce the cake and it’s so small that I can’t scoop the cake up. So not only does it fail as a fork, it also fails as a spoon. So what is it good for? I think it would work really well as a digging implement in the garden.

And the spoon that came with the set has already been relegated to the rubbish, after someone stepped on it and broke it. In this case, when Bob asked “Can we fix it?” The answer was most definitely NO.

    Belated birthday wishes to you and your hubby! :)

    What a funny story! We LOVE Bob here.

    But have to wonder why they make those little forks quite so dull. I know we don’t want the littles to get hurt….but…why not just give them sticks to eat with? Might be more effective.

    You…should have just used your fingers to eat that cake. :)
