To pelt my cakes at this mum's head in the playground this afternoon? <fume>

The school are having a cake sale tomorrow and have BEGGED for donations of cakes. They have been Facebooking about how desperate they are all week as they want to make a dent in the £12,000 target needed for some new play equipment in the playground. One might think that flogging cakes at 30 pee each is not the way to make a dent but that's another thing...

I am pushed for time this week but I thought I could do some cornflake easter nests with some mini eggs on top as a quick alternative to baking and frosting two dozen fairy cakes. So I went out and bought the stuff (which I reckon cost more than they will get from the sales tbh) Then I replied to one of the FB begging messages saying "I will bring some cornflake easter nests tomorrow, will have about 40" Then one of the PTA wimmin replied "Ha ha! That's great but be prepared to take most of them home as they don't sell as well as real cakes."

Fuck. You. Bitch.

sad

Oooooooh. angry
I'll buy some. Love 'em.

I think in that case I'd reply "ok then I won't bother". Cornflake cakes are the best sellers at my son's school and pre-school fetes. The kids love them.

HazeltheMcWitch Wed 27-Mar-13 13:04:43

Bee-yatch!

They do sell, don't they? Maybe I just live in a very unsophisticated area?

The economics of cake sales are off, aren't they?

BitBewildered Wed 27-Mar-13 13:04:45

YANBU. Fairy cakes are shit.

HazeltheMcWitch Wed 27-Mar-13 13:05:17

OMG! Why did I use so much punctuation there?

Nancy66 Wed 27-Mar-13 13:06:29

i'd take those over another motherfucking cupcake any day.

BeingAWifeIsNotForMe Wed 27-Mar-13 13:06:30

Stick them in the freezer overnight so the edges are really sharp, then pelt the fucking bitch grin

Thumbwitch Wed 27-Mar-13 13:07:09

Oh how very fucking rude.

I wouldn't waste them on her, I'd just save them and eat them at home over the Easter weekend.

Rude. I love chocolate crispy cakes.

With mini eggs on top and loads of chocolate whats not to like - I thought that was a standard kid fave. Fair enough it may not be to all adults taste - but if your cake sales are anything like ours its normally the kids (well with the parents money) doing most of the buying.

MikeOxardAndWellard Wed 27-Mar-13 13:08:01

I would respond very simply 'you're welcome'. Rude bitch. x

SanityClause Wed 27-Mar-13 13:08:31

IME, anything with sweets on is popular with children.

Maybe it's different at your school though? hmm

hmm to her BTW, not you!

do what tutu100 says! I beseech you thanks.

Emilythornesbff Wed 27-Mar-13 13:08:46

I now have a craving for them.
So, as it turns out YABU.

ipswichwitch Wed 27-Mar-13 13:08:52

YANBU, although don't pelt your cakes at her, use her crappy cakes. I'll come buy all your lovely cornflake cakes since they (and rice krispie cakes) are far superior to regular cakes. so there

MarmaladeTwatkins Wed 27-Mar-13 13:09:16

grin at BeingAWife giving tips out for maximum injury!

I bought some really pretty easter themed paper cases from Waitrose too. I am going to make an extra effort with them to make the kids want to buy them. I might even bring out the coloured sprinkles to lure the kids to buy. You know how the little ones can't resist a fucking sprinkle angry

Sell them on MN then present the school with a cheque for the full £12,000 with the local press covering the event. grin Post a copy of the photo on FB.

Thumbwitch Wed 27-Mar-13 13:09:46

Just seen that this is you, Twatters. smile

Save a couple that don't work so well (chocolate doesn't set, for e.g.) and pelt her with those. Although the frozen sharp edge idea appeals, I prefer the idea of sticky chocolate nests lodging in her barnet for the day. grin

ipswichwitch Wed 27-Mar-13 13:10:50

dammit, now I'm craving them too.

KoalaFace Wed 27-Mar-13 13:12:04

Make them and when you leave wave your empty tupperware at her and shout "I told off some of the children for using your 'real cakes' as cannon fodder in a cake fight. You're welcome!"

Still18atheart Wed 27-Mar-13 13:12:04

We had a charity cake sale last week and the chocolate cornflake cakes sold a lot quicker than the traditional cupcakes/ fairy cakes.

EostreChaoticResurrEggtion Wed 27-Mar-13 13:13:54

I'm with tut100 I'd post again and say I won't bother then.

Wrt the cake throwing, freeze some and make the other's sticky. The best of both worlds wink

Sparklingbrook Wed 27-Mar-13 13:14:10

Make some of those dangerous flapjacks with sharp corners and a slingshot. angry

Willow36 Wed 27-Mar-13 13:14:41

I'd buy them over cupcakes/fairy cakes. They are my absolute favourite.

She's being a bitch. Refuse to buy any of the cakes she makes.

thezebrawearspurple Wed 27-Mar-13 13:15:16

I'd eat them rather than wasting any on her head, throw stones insteadwink
