Last night (late) i finished a baby shower cake for Boss' sister inlaws shower. I placed it in the back of the truck which is parked right outside my kitchen window. It was nice and cool and I have my daughters dog for the week end. I can't trust her so this was the safest place.

We went to bed late (around 1am) the dog was trying to come into my room where my cats are so I didn't get to sleepwith all the whinning then the barking. I thought my son was coming home when she barked. I got up a few minutes later to warn him not to eat the cake that I have to finish today and thru my kitchen window I see two men rummaging thru my truck!!!!! I get my husband and call the police. I husband scared them away and all they got was my change for the tolls. They went thru both my cars. I have lived here for 22 years and never have I locked my car.
My fault .....but after the police left and I was calming down I remembered the cake in the back!!!!!! PANIC...I run outside to find the cake was ok...never even touched it.....I was a mess.... THank gooodness
they didn't see it or I would have been up all night baking instead of worrying!! All turned out well no harm no foul but what a nite! Just had to share thanks for listening!!!!!

so creepy, I live in a small town and I never lock my car doors (though I know I should...I'm just too darned lazy....then when I go out in the morning I gotta get my keys out before I get in and the whole thing) scary for you though!!!
Bet you won't forget to lock the door on your house!!!! eek

ok - have to ask. what you have done if it had rained? seems little odd to leave a cake overnight in the back of a truck.

I was thinking that too! Is it OK to leave a cake outside all night? What about bugs? Even worse, what about racoons?

Regardless, I am glad that you are OK!

I'm glad your cake was/is safe. I can understand the dog issue, I have 2 dogs, 1 at the time of my story, I had a 3 tired wedding cake to do and baked all my cakes, had them set out on the table (un-iced) I had to run out so I covered them all with towels, pushed in the chairs and went. When I removed the towels to start icing the biggest layer had a small dent, I thought I must have done that, when I got to the 10" layer half of it was gone...Thank God I had a extra layer. My dog some how managed to get on the table walk over a 2 layers (only dented one) and eat half of another one. That gave her the new nick name of "Piggly wiggly cake eater". Good Luck with the next ones hidding place.

Your story reminds me of a true story that happened to my friend. She too lived in a small town (I once lived there too, though I can happily report I don't anymore). Anyway, she never locked her car. One morning she got up and got in her car and was backing down her driveway when a man sat up in her backseat. She started screaming at the top of her lungs. Luckily, the guy was harmless. His wife had kicked him out the night before for drinking and he was just trying to find a place to sleep. Scary and funny at the same time!

How scary. I'm glad they only got into your vehicle, and not into your house!

Wow, that is lucky, although I would never be able to leave any kind of food in my car overnight...between snakes, frogs, deer and racoons, it wouldn't survive.

Don't you guys have doors in your house to keep dogs out?

We had a rash of people stealing stuff from garages! Everyone felt it was ok to leave their garage door opened while running around for the day. Not me, I lock everything, even my car is in locked while parked IN the garage!

i would say the op meant it was locked in the king cab part, the back of an suv, or such...hopefully!

just to let y'all know...the largest percentage, like 85% or something, of break-ins are during the daylight hours, because it's less suspicious when they come to your door or window. many times, they'll know who is out during the day hours because they live leave, they come in. my husband has taught me and my 4 yr old both that after the door is opened, it gets automatically deadbolted when closed. i've gotten many strange looks from neighbors when they had to unlock the door just to let themselves back out, but it's better to be safe than sorry, for sure!!

also, never leave the garage door open, even when mowing the grass! guess where that door in your garage leads to...your house, you guessed it!!!!!

another thing: if you do not park your car in the garage, you need to make sure your doors are locked, and preferably your garage door opener is at least hidden somewhere. alot of bad people will just break a window, reach in and open the garage door, and they now have access to your house.

I have a pick up truck with a cap and it locks I have put many things in there for safe keeping. Yes I have doors in my house like a bedroom door that would probably come open with the push of her paws so my best bet was the back of the truck it is sealed no bugs no animals and it was cool and safe...I thought!

I will be locking my car everynight now. I leave at 5 am every morning to go to my job. I am glad it happened on a Friday night or I may have walked into that myself.

also I don't usually have a dog .... I am doggie sitting and couldn't think of any where else that I was sure she couldn't get into it.

LOck em or loose them that is what the next town is doing now If y ou don't lock your car and there is theft or the police find it they ticket you . So to add insult to injury last night I could have lost my change(LOL) and my cake and then gotten a fine ontop of that! LESSON LEARNED! Be careful out there please
