So, I made this baby shower cake for a friend in return for all the babysitting she has done for me. It was for her sister. I delivered it on Saturday. The mommy and future Grandma were very impressed..." cool!" I explained to them that there were dowels under the moon and one through the moon to keep it in place. I said "Just make sure when you cut it, you don't serve someone a dowel." They nodded understanding and I went on my way.
Fast forward to today. I get a call from my friend and she tells me she has this hilarious story to tell me. Apparently during the party, when it came time to serve the cake, there was some disagreement about whether or not the moon part of the cake was edible. My friend argued with her sister that it was all edible. "No!" Her sister says. "She said there is a barbie in the moon and we can't cut it!" WHAT??? My friend argues. NO! it's all edible. "NO! There's a doll in it!" My friend's sister took the moon part home and cut into it herself, wanting to see the "DOLL" in the middle of the cake.

WOW. That's all I have to say. Wow.

icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif that is so funny!! i always get scared that when im explaining about the dowels in the cake that the person is so busy looking at the cake that they dont pay attention to what im telling them,so i end up telling them twice,and sometimes pulling a dowel out of the package to show them what the dowel looks like.

yes because dowels and dolls sound sooo similiar icon_confused.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif
I also always worry about dowels, but not as much since I switched to bubble tea straws instead of wooden dowels.

Yeah I thought I've heard somewhere that it's a tradition for some people. Bake a doll into the cake, whoever gets the doll has good luck? Not a barbie though icon_biggrin.gif

Yeppers. I just recently had to explain to a recipient what a "dowel" was! I felt like I was talking to a child. Geeez!

lol, my husband is constantly convinced that someone is going to choke on a dowel rod and cant understand how we can all use them and not worry about it!! i told him its a necessity and I also cellotape a little typed note to every cake box telling people how to remove dowels and also how to store gumpaste figures which means i keep myself right cause people definitly arent listening to you once they see the cake!!
