Remembering the Smeecha Cake!

smeecha111

 

Do you know the emails sent with pictures of brilliant strange looking cakes that we ooh and ahh over and think to ourselves waaay ayshawgoooon they look tooo good it’s too sad u have to ruin them in order for them to be eaten!?

 

I remember a few years back, when i was still a new bride and life was still fun. It was Bu tootee’s birthday and he refused that i get him anything aside from a pair of plush novelty animal slippers…

Me, being the stubborn person that i am, refused to let his 25th birthday go by unmarked. So i decided that ok he gets to get the slippers… and he gets a nice homemade dinner with a surprise cake at the end. He likes the slippers so much? Ok, i will get him a cake that is an exact copy of those slippers.

Decision was easy. I took a picture of the slippers and decided to find a bakery in Q8 that would do them for me.

A top view of the cake, the smeecha is swimming on a little blue cream sea surrounded by choclates

Surprise Surprise!!!!

Aside from one creative bakery in Q8, no one would make the cake  for me!!!!!!

Smeecha's Eyes from Marzipan! Pity my clumsiness smeared the cream on top :(

The commercial ones with too many branches scattered around ever corner in Q8 do not have the capability to do such cakes and the taste of their cakes are horrible anyways (ista’3far allah)…

The big professional ones who cater for weddings and parties looked the picture up and down and refused to help me out, wasting their precious time on a miniature cake that serves less than a 100 persons…

The only nice bakery who never turned me around, who helped me out without question, whose cake i know i will like, who added their own touch and made the cake amazing, and who gave me a very reasonable, infact too reasonable, price for it (less than 20 KD!!!!!!) was… Caramel!!!

Walla i gave them the picture, they said ok. Come pick it up on the party day. It was maybe 3 days in advance.

They did a pretty good job. The cake tasted amazing. U can judge ur self on how the cake looks.

We took it the next day to my parents to celebrate and every one was just laughing out loud!!!!

I did not have a blog then. I never got around to share what a wonderful experience i had that day. But now i can and i will…

    Anyone else notices how scary the eyes are? 😛

    And no, that clumsiness that you mentioned gave it an even angrier look, it looks as if it is glaring lol.
