(This is the part where you say: Another post about cake? Really?)
I probably should have written this post first, before the one about “Bobby” and his birthday cake.
I say that because you may have come away from the last post with the impression that:
- We didn’t make a cake at home for Son’s birthday
- We are careless consumers for not checking the spelling on the cake
And I simply can’t bear the thought of you getting those impressions, because if I did, it would completely discount the hours that MC spent making the cake for Son’s party on Saturday.
Here at the MBI Estate, we’re fluent in our Noggin shows, so it’s little wonder that Son chose Max & Ruby as the theme for his party.
If you’re familiar with the story Bunny Cakes (and how could you not be after reading it 3,450 times?) you know that Max is a bit of a cake-maker himself. In fact, the whole book documents Max’s struggle to get some Red Hot Marshmallow Squirters to garnish his Earthworm Cake.

The cake was an absolute wonder. Four layers of chocolate-y goodness bound together with chocolate pudding and dusted in chocolate graham cracker crumbs. Shaped to look like a lump of mud and garnished with gummy worms and red Dots.
It was a huge, huge hit. Here it is:
