How I spent my Saturday morning...

You may remember this from last Sunday. Well, after some last minute glitches, and changes in plans, here are the finished products. (Again, NOT kid-friendly!)

I decided that since I was way behind on time (thanks to having an AWESOME night last night with a house full of my girlfriends, the last of whom left at 1am!) I probably shouldn't attempt another cake. I came up with 2 alternatives.

A) bake a sheet cake to put the original penis cake (which had been lovingly wrapped tight and gently placed in the freezer last Sunday) on or
B) make cupcakes and put some type of penis on top of them.

It occurred to me that I should have asked my friend, who is throwing the party, for her penis molds that her mother and sister used for HER bachelorette party. Too late! But, I assumed I'd be able to find molds at Lover's Lane. There happens to be one about 5 minutes from my house.

Well, without boring you with all the details of my shopping trip, I ended up buying candy because they had no molds.

First, I bought these gummy penises.

I figured they'd be perfect for doing this:Shockingly, there are people in this world who don't like chocolate (the weirdos!!) so I made a few like this, too.
I also found these little cuties at the register. They're like Runts. (Remember those?)I used them for the mini-cupcakes I made.
Here's the finished cake. I think maybe I should have skipped the added stubble, huh?
This hilarious little detail is an homage to my Grammy. But, that's a story for another day.
Well, I'm off to get ready for the shower (which I'm already late for). The bachelorette party is pretty much immediately after the shower. I'm already tired just thinking about how long this night is going to be. I just may have to cut out early, and leave the partying to the youngsters.

You are too funny. When a close friend turned 60, I hit an XXX rated site and sent her a box of goodies. She lives out of town and was hysterical when she opened it. I wonder if it came in a plan brown wrapper?

The stubble is awesome! I think a dribble of custard would have topped it all off. I hope you had a great time...I am jealous...haven't been to a bachelorette party in too long.

Chi, I'm so glad you liked the crayon craft. You could even get your class involved - imagine having them sort the crayons by color! And do check out Meg's blog for more craft ideas - she used to do a craft every week with her kids, after school, and she now hosts craft weekends in her home. She is really inspiring - even if I'm not doing those things, I love seeing how/what she is doing!

Thank you for calling me a smart cookie on Mark's site!
And OMG we are the same person, you have to come read my blog! It's kind of scary.

This is so awful: when I was reading your post, I thought to myself that I need to figure out something to bring for our monthly office party (we have birthdays in each month, so instead of many parties, we just do one day per month and it is my turn to do the cake in February) and that maybe I would do these cupcakes. Somehow I think my office would be stunned if Maria-who-has-a-female-partner brought penis cupcakes.....I guess I will stick to what I planned on making instead: Bourbon brownies with praline icing....
