NationalFlight Fri 22-May-09 20:25:49

NationalFlight Fri 22-May-09 20:28:08


nobody likes him!


FrannyandZooey Fri 22-May-09 20:29:18

omg i looked at top picture and thought you had made chocolate vulva cake

MinaLoy Fri 22-May-09 20:30:05

It's a beaut! Well done cake lady.

FrannyandZooey Fri 22-May-09 20:30:11

he looks yummy btw

fishie Fri 22-May-09 20:32:27

gosh. it is a lovely bat but an utterly marvellous vulva.

NationalFlight Fri 22-May-09 20:34:22

arghhh!!!!!!!!!!! NO IT IS NOT A VULVA!!!!grin

but thanks, nice of you to say so grin

NationalFlight Fri 22-May-09 20:35:10

Vulvas do not have TEETH


FrannyandZooey Fri 22-May-09 20:35:38

it only looks like a vulva in the first two

in the third one it looks like a butterfly bat honest

FrannyandZooey Fri 22-May-09 20:35:56

speak for yourself wink

NationalFlight Fri 22-May-09 20:37:01

This gets worse grin

Seriously it is for ds birthday

I have until sunday to ensure it does not look like a fanjo,

is ti that bad?

FrannyandZooey Fri 22-May-09 20:38:43

no i am being playful and rude
it's a fab cake
how old is he going to be?

NationalFlight Fri 22-May-09 20:40:19

ah thanks fran. 6. I found there was only yellow writing stuff and at one point tried to find out if he'd make do with a wasp instead. Face it, it could be anything couldn't it grin

nickytwotimes Fri 22-May-09 20:41:10

It is fab!

Nothing like a vulva.

Franny's mind is clearly in the gutter. wink wink

FrannyandZooey Fri 22-May-09 20:41:23

LOLOL @ wasp
i wish i could make cakes
my mum made brilliant ones and i always remember them

FrannyandZooey Fri 22-May-09 20:42:10

oh come on nicky it does look slightly fanjoid in the first two

NationalFlight Fri 22-May-09 20:42:48

I was into icing patterns and stuff as a 13yo, sadly I have not made one in YEARS. Tesco cake mix, 38 whole pence, bargain!

FrannyandZooey Fri 22-May-09 20:42:51

ONLY the first two though
it clearly becomes a wasp afterwards

BAT i mean BAT

NationalFlight Fri 22-May-09 20:43:41

PMSL at fanjoid


NationalFlight Fri 22-May-09 20:44:45

Flappy will sting you if you are not careful franny.

FrannyandZooey Fri 22-May-09 20:46:29
nickytwotimes Fri 22-May-09 20:47:33

<<whispers so as not to be heard by National>>

yes, it does a little bit.

Perhaps the first two stages could be seen as the metaphorical birthing stage of the finished Flappy?

<desperate attempt to redeem self>


can I have a bit now please?

NationalFlight Fri 22-May-09 20:50:57

grin See, later on tonight when I have partook of wine, I am going to be standing there in the kitchen trying to fashion a clitoral hood from royal icing. It is a rubbish bat. It would probably look BETTER as a fanjo. Ds won't care, will he? hmm

it's fab! well done :D

and it looks nothing like my fanjo

i mean, not that i'm suggesting you modelled it on me or anything. but erm. i'll go now

NationalFlight Fri 22-May-09 20:52:11

keep digging tiy wink

i had you in mind actually

nickytwotimes Fri 22-May-09 20:53:01

It looks like a bat in the last picture.

It looks NOTHING LIKE A FANJO int eh last picture.

I am pmsl at the idea of an icing clitoral head.

is he having a party?
i mean, will other mums see it and wonder why you made a vulva with a face on?

let's face it, for 38p who cares if it looks like a fanjo

NationalFlight Fri 22-May-09 20:55:37

good point, i am going to have to buy a proper cake aren't I. There's no way I'll get away with it.

OR I could make a complimentary one in the shape of a big PENIS but disguised as a caterpillar. And ask for the parents' car keys on the way in.

Theme it, yes, that might work...

nickytwotimes Fri 22-May-09 21:00:52

You could sell the pattern for it in Ann Summers?

hehehe no it's fine. people are always impressed with my homemade cakes.

well, they say they are anyway

FrannyandZooey Fri 22-May-09 22:09:16

i have been giving this some thought
and you know i am not sure of the wisdom of calling it a flappy cake

Sycamoretree Fri 22-May-09 22:21:03

Sorry, but PMSL. This thread has given me the biggest laugh in AGES.

Bless you NF - I actually think it's rather charming. grin

AitchTwoOh Fri 22-May-09 22:33:49

omg YES i'm afraid i too thought it was a fanny cake. i think the word flappy might have been a bum steer.

Aitch linked this thread to my thread with the words Flappy cake. You are all being very cruel. I looked at the pictures without reading the thread and thought it was a brilliant bat/butterfly - sorry! bat!

But now that Franny has pointed out the similarity....I am off to show dh this thread. grin

PS Is the presence of cat food in one picture significant?

Saltire Fri 22-May-09 22:54:07

I like the face with the green dummy, it's very liflik, how did you get the cake to look like thatgrin

BigTeuchLittleTeuch Fri 22-May-09 23:45:49

why is your cake so shiny?

Is everyone esle's fannies cakes this shiny?!

MollieO Sat 23-May-09 00:11:00

You could combine his birthday with a talk about the facts of life. I'm sure the cake would be a useful aid. grin

NationalFlight Sat 23-May-09 07:40:32


Teuch that was the bottom (sorry) of the cake. I bought a new quick release tin from habitat having not attempted a cake for some years.

When I turned it out it was, as you say, very very shiny hmm

AitchTwoOh Sat 23-May-09 21:07:12

meant to ask are you FA, NF?

NationalFlight Sat 23-May-09 21:12:02

oh ya I am smile

You are H, yes? grin

i was thinking about your fanny cake in bed last night NF.
as you do

anyway, i reckon if you move the wings a bit it'll look more batlike.

instead of being straight down at the sides, they need to be sticking out more iyswim?

NationalFlight Sat 23-May-09 21:46:41

Ah thankyou TIY smile

well I am ashamed to say we have consumed almost half of it already, despite birthday being tmrw blush

but anyway he was very pleased with it, the raisins round the edges were good, I have to recommend tesco cake mix.

Next year I will make a better, slightly adjusted version with the wings down a bit grin

Good for halloween actually too, it was so simple to cut the shape as it all came from one circle. No wasted corners! black marzipan would have been better than choco though.

AitchTwoOh Sat 23-May-09 22:07:03

a cake mix?! <judges>

i have a friend who swears by that tesco mix, i have to say it is really lovely. i always ask her for the recipe. tis i, flight.

NationalFlight Sat 23-May-09 22:13:47

Well is a bit dry honestly but certainly not bad. smile

It took long enough for ds2 to throw nuts and bolts all over the floor, put all my cleaning sprays in the bin and tip over the cat's water...gawd knows the damage if I'd made a real cake!!

FrannyandZooey Sat 23-May-09 22:42:58

i think it was very ingenious with no wasted cake
and you were a very good sport about the vulva thing

NationalFlight Sun 24-May-09 07:46:47

oh Franny you sweet thing smile
It was hilarious, you had me in tears, but in a good way you understand!

worst thing was ds kept saying 'what, mummy? what are you laughing at?' and got mightily offended when I said the other mums were laughing at his cake!! I had to back pedal fast.

BibiThree Fri 29-May-09 12:30:47

Where have the pictures gone? You made the round up and now I want to see the vulva cake!
Please smile

Jackstini Fri 29-May-09 12:39:55

Absolutely - v excited about choc fanjo!

damewashalot Fri 29-May-09 12:43:46

Yes please, need to see it grin

tinateaspoon Fri 29-May-09 13:04:14

Oooh please put the pictures back - I might want to make a vulva cake one day

PortAndLemon Fri 29-May-09 13:05:14

TheYearOfTheCat Fri 29-May-09 23:07:25

BelleSeuss Sat 30-May-09 10:22:04

I want pictures!

[toddler strop smiley] grin

Damn, I missed the pictures.

I thought this thread would be about a floppy cake blush

LastOrders Mon 01-Jun-09 00:23:34

Pictures. Back on. Now.

NationalFlight, the pictures aren't there now. Can we see please? grin

tinateaspoon Tue 02-Jun-09 19:50:32

Can't MNHQ get them out of the archive or something. You can't publish this on the round up and leave us all dangling, please have pity I am in need of a good laugh grin
