A LITTLE WHITE LIE

No Maass lessons this week, I'm preparing for the conference! Have a cute story that I posted last year.


Have you ever told a white lie? You are going to love this especially all the ladies who bake for church events!

Alice was to bake a cake for the Church ladies' group bake sale, but she forgot to do it until the last minute. She baked an angel food cake and when she took it from the oven, the center dropped flat. She said, "Oh dear, there's no time to bake another cake."

So, she looked around the house for something to build up the center of the cake. Alice found it in the bathroom...a roll of toilet paper. She plunked it in and covered it with icing. The finished product looked beautiful, so she rushed it to the church.

Before she left the house, Alice had given her daughter some money and specific instructions to be at the bake sale the minute it opened, and to buy that cake and bring it home.

When the daughter arrived at the sale, the attractive cake had already been sold. Alice was beside herself.

The next day, Alice was invited to a friend's home where two tables of bridge were to be played that afternoon.

After the game, a fancy lunch was served, and to top it off, the cake in question was presented for dessert.

Alice saw the cake, she started to get out of her chair to rush into the kitchen to tell her hostess all about it, but before she could get to her feet, one of the other ladies said, "What a beautiful cake."

Alice sat back down in her chair when she heard the hostess (who was a prominent church member) say, "Thank you, I baked it myself."

Think about it...What would you have done?

    Ew. Toilet Roll Cake. But I'm wondering HOW a toilet paper roll can hold up a cake.
    Kat said...

    guess you should always tell the truth -- you never know when the little lies will bite you

    Maybe the paper wasn't such a bad thing. Those little old ladies probably needed the fiber in their diet.
