Since I did make the cake up from scratch (Not that a box was an option. Who has banana cake sitting on the shelves in a grocery store?) I went the lazy route and used canned frosting. Actually I have a deep fear of ever attempting to make frosting at home after some very nasty attempts that failed fantastically.I've also come to adore my cake spreader thing. Before I had it I tried using a butter knife. Ever try using a butter knife to frost a red velvet cake? It looked like a horrible Christmas massacre had taken place as the red crumbly bits mixed with the white cream cheese leaving a slightly bloody pink slick on parts of the cake.
Once the cake was nicely covered in chocolate goo, I thought "Well this looks nice but it's kinda plain. How can I dress it up?" Then I remembered we still had some leftover yellow frosting that was the mustard in the hot dog groom's cake.
Being all so clever I thought hey I can tell people what this cake is by adding some yellow bananas. But that didn't look right, so then I added some more yellow stuff to try again.
It still looked weird so I finally decided screw it, I'm going for broke and tried to line the edge with the last of the yellow frosting. Then for good measure I put some sprinkles on top cause we all want sprinkles.
This is why I should never ever decorate cakes unless I have a plan in my head thought out for a few months:
Every time I look at it I break out into giggles. It looks so awful, like Big Bird had an accident on it or it was the site of a radioactive waste dump. (I bet you guys can come up with better explanations for the random yellow droppings)
I tried to take a picture of myself laughing while also eating up the last of the chocolate frosting but I don't think it worked too well:This whole challenge for That Wife of taking a picture of someone laughing is hard. Other people as soon as you put the camera on them clam up or do a weird pose and my own personal portraits are a touch avaunt garde I'd say. But maybe as you guys get a good look at the cake I made you can join in the laughter, take a picture and enter that.
