My friend Mimi Pond, who did the funny Super King cartoon I posted a while ago, made this wonderful cake for a memorial service for her late mom Janet, who volunteered at a library. She had a little help from Jewish lesbian folksinger and Tupperware maven Phranc, who apparently knows her way around cakes, too. The cake features some of her mom's (and every mom's) favorite sayings: "You are deliberately trying to drive me insane" and "This house better be picked up by the time I get back."
I can hope hope my kids would be so creative! Mimi used a yellow cake recipe from "How to Cook Everything" and buttercream frosting from Smitten Kitchen.
