How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Sift the cake mix through a tight strainer as you put it into the bowl, because you can never tell what's in these damn mixes. I mean, I found a few pebbles in there once. Gross! (Plus, sifting makes it easier to mix, less lumps to work out.)
  • Add sugars and vanilla.
  • Beat eggs slightly, then add and mix.
  • Melt the butter over a stove and let cool slightly before adding to mixture. Or, if you wanna add the butter cold, that's fine too, to each their own.
  • Add milk and mix/beat until smooth.
  • Using a paper towel, grease two large pans with the margarine, making sure to get the crevices and along the sides.
  • Flour pans too. That's always fun.
  • Pour 1/2 of the batter into one of the pans. Add the baking powder to the remaing mixture, then fill the empty pan.
  • Bake at 350 for around 40-50 minutes, depending on your oven. Remove when knife or toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • One will be flat and one will be poofy. Use the flat cake for the bottom, ice it and place the poofy one on top. Then cut the sides into the shape of a football. Or, if it's not a superbowl party, you can just leave it as is. Whatever.
  • Ice the sides, leaving the top plain. Cut the very tip off one of the corners of a Ziplock bag, just big enough to fit the flourette maker into, then fasten with the rubber band. Bam, instant pastry filling bag! How cool is that? Thanks to Chef Kelsey who taught me that trick and did an intense job of decorating my cake.
  • Fill the remainder of the icing into the bag, or little bits at a time, whatever you prefer, and decorate the top with little flourettes.
  • Take the white (or yellow, in our case) icing and make a football decoration down the center.
  • Serve your Ultra-Mega-Zord-Awesome Cake. Make lots of friends and get lots of phone numbers, because you're the $#!%!
  • Your quote of the day comes from when Kel, Chris and I were waiting for the bus after the party. Tons of people were driving around waving Giants flags, honking and screaming at anyone they saw. We got so sick of it, we began to screw with them.
  • Crazed Giants Fan: [Driving by honking] “Giants are Number 1!!”
  • Chris: “I hate your family!” Kelsey: “I love crack!" Den: “Crash and die!"

Chef Kelsey volunteered to eat whatever I wasn't serving. He's so skinny, I didn't have the heart to refuse him. lol   Close
