Still Wishing I Was a Baker

November 12th

I really wanted to cut myself a slice.
So you lost your job cake
Bundt cake should be called butt cake

This is Waitress-inspired, “Sorry-You-Got-Laid-Off” chocolate cake. It was delivered warm, with a sprinkling of cinnamon for good luck. The recipient was quick to say, “Guess what! I may have a job offer!” to which I responded, “See you next week with the Congrats-You-Got-A-New-Job!! pie.”

Any excuse to bake, what can I say?

  1. That is a very good-looking cake. I’ve wanted to see “Waitress” for a long time..pretty much since it came out in theaters..I’ll get around to it one day, I guess.

  2. Oh my word, could you just clone yourself and have your clone come live near me … I promise I’d reciprocate with heartfelt gifts and cups of tea! Or better yet, delish meals and bottles of yummy wine!

    Oh, you must be a good luck charm. Maybe I should bake my dear husband a cake! It looks beautiful.

  4. You have one of the biggest hearts. So thoughtful and caring of others. So many times while reading your blog, I am wishing you were my daughter-in-law. πŸ™‚

  5. i loved waitress! even snagged the dvd from my dad’s house. shhh…don’t rat me out πŸ˜‰

  6. Beautiful cake Kelli and an even more beautiful heart. Look forward to seeing what pie you bake for her next.

  7. Nothing better than a cake made with love and happy thoughts. And it looks amazingly tasty too! πŸ™‚

  8. I saw Waitress (not as good as I had hoped!). Cake looks delish! Hope your friend lands a job soon!

  9. I have to second Sue’s comment, we just need to clone you gal. LOL.

    The cake looks awesome. Wish I was there to help eat it. LOL. My dad always said “Any money spent for food, was money well spent” He was farm raised and I believe got the saying from his father. My dad was born back in the later 1920’s so times were harder then. He was a truck driver when he and my mom married, so life was easier after that. But I believe he was right, especially when food is shared with a good friend. Nothing better.

  10. I’ve been reading some of the above posters comments and I agree, you’d be a wonderful daughter in law and if everyone in the world were as sweet and caring as you the world would be a better place.

  11. My husband will be getting one of those soon. THe cake looks yummy!!
