Hey, I'm sorry, OP, that you almost poisoned everyone but only got yourself as a result.
However, I do have my doubts despite everything.
It sounds like something you would day dream and not really do, then write about somewhere.
You think someone could get all the way to finished on a 3-tier cake then notice oopsie, it's butane. You would be figuring out a way to save that puppy for the later date--few of us would laugh about that--it would not be funny to me. I would be pissed. I would not be happy if someone laughed about a huge error like that.
Maybe it's true.
I've never tried it so I guess my bad for doubting still yet I do.
Gosh, I can easily eat two small bites of cake, but two pieces would be way too much. Isn't there a tremendous distinction between a bite...maybe just a taste...and a whole piece? Maybe my imagination just runs wild while I live with Ethel downstairs, but I can think of many reasons why I might take a bite from two different layers of cake. I mean, perhaps they were different flavors. What if you were trying to determine what ingredient was bad...do you need to throw out all the left over ingredients, or could it just be the chocolate from layer one or the banana in layer 2?
And, why can't mixing up a date mean feeding the cake to the family and rebaking later? I read about people doing this all the time. I dont' think she said how wrong she was with the date. Yeah, if it was just a day or two, maybe she'd save the cake, but a week or a month? Totally possible.
And, again, maybe because I live in that accidental slapstick world, but I laugh at my mistakes on a daily basis and I entertain my friends with them often. And I always want to share things that can help out others, especially if it is potentially dangerous.
And if this is all bogus, why would we need to call anyone out on this? I don't see it as a post that needs such treatment, do you?
I'm just feelin' awfully bad for the OP. I appreciate her post. If nothing else, she reminds me to be careful with my assumptions and to slow down at everything I do.
