Say What?

Painfully Honest Cakes

Remember, kids, if you can't say anything nice...

...say it with cake.

 

Today is National Honesty Day, but before you go dropping those truth bombs, let's take a look at some ways you can be completely honest but still somewhat polite:

And my personal favorite:

Only works with Angelas, though.

I just realized if you read those three together, you get a short poem:

"You are tolerable.
You are slightly above average.
You are Angela."

I like it.

 

If you can be a little more effusive, there's also this option for a completely honest compliment:

"And hey, I mean that."

 

But let's be honest: 99% of the people you know are total jerkfaces, and the only reason we say nice things on their cakes is because it's their birthday and we want cake.

So here's a compromise: start with "happy birthday," and then throw in a little truth:

Boom.

 

See, the exclamation mark makes it chipper!

 

The misspelling will confuse everyone long enough for us to make a run for it.

 

If you'd rather avoid all that conflict, though, then how about a general statement that everyone can agree on?

TRUTH.

Say What, Again?

Sometimes people often send me their cakes with no back story, which usually isn't a big deal, but other times...

Um.

Yeah.


I like to think this is the same James:


And all together, now:

"Nana nana nana nana nana... da heck?"


Now here's a reader who knows how to properly stage a photo:

Never have I been so grateful for a pair of quotation marks.


Deep Thoughts
From The Bakery:

I guess it must be a birthday cake? Maybe?

"Gee, thanks, Mom."
"And don't forget to show your friends the new sweater vest I got you!"
"MOO-OOOOM!"


I think "Danngeous" is supposed to be "dangerous."

Sooo, I'm guessing they never saw these bon-bons, then.


"And thank YOU for putting them out again."


This is one of those times I wish I was a baker:

I mean, the urge to put a plastic roach in this thing must have been OVERWHELMING.


And finally:

That says "Happy Holidays Mile High Ferret Club."

I'M OUT.
