The Cake

The Story of The Cake

     Erin ordered this cake from Aunt Jean and she had specific requirements:  It must be three layers, have Strawberry Shortcake on top, have doors and windows on each layer and have snow.  Jean considered coconut for snow but Erin said the white frosting was the snow.  As you can imagine, Erin was thrilled.

     When Erin was at my house, she said we were having pizza for her party.  I mentioned this while talking to Jean and Jean said we were having home-made chicken pot pie, mashed potatoes, fruit and veggies.  So Jean asked to talk to Erin to explain the change in menu.  I called Erin to my office and said, "Your party co-ordinator would like to speak to you."  She replied, "Oh, Aunt Jean is on the phone?"
