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

At our school bake sale the resident domestic goddess berated my friend for bringing in shop bought cakes. My friend had a two weeK old baby and a seriously ill husband.
Goddess mum will never know how close she came to being lynched with her Kath Kidston pinny by a group of righteously irate mums.

Katir I am meant ti be taking my DC to the doctors and you are making me late, as I'm going to have to wipe the tears of mirth from my eyes

How about a fridge magnet "I never cook with wine. I just drink it and order a take away"

I really would text back and say "ok I won't bother then" and then don't .

I have to admit I do prefer cupcakes to crispy cakes. But I accept I am wrong!

Yes what tutu said but I wouldn't be able to resist adding something sarcastic like "Great motivational skills MrsX"

BTW I don't do FB but if you reply on there does that mean everyone will see it. If so, please do and show her up the snooty cow!

Please, please PM me if you ever start selling these.

Creamtea1 Wed 27-Mar-13 13:29:18

that above is the best course of action

YANBU.

Agree I wouldn't bother.

I would put a comment on fb saying 'how lovely it must be to have so little to do that you have the time to bake 'real' cakes & spend all day on Facebook.

smile

Take your nests in - prime all your friends and their DC to RUN and buy your cakes. Then give her the finger grin

Ok dont give her the finger just smile smugly ... can you tell how much I loathed all that cake oneupmanship crap!

minouminou Wed 27-Mar-13 13:30:56

I know, Babyfirefly.

It's possible that the foodbank looks at non-mainstream foods and thinks "Oh no, we'll never shift this...." but a simple "We'd prefer more conventional/recognisable/simple foods, please, as it's likely to be more appreciated...." would have done the trick.

Anyway - send the email to the lemon-sucking madam....and then make some amazing flake-cakes. With Mini Eggs and a free wire and pom-pom chick to go with it.

Go on.

I've run out of tinned chickpeas. I looked in the cupboard last night and was devastated. We had to have lentils instead and dinner took too bloody long to cook.

MarmaladeTwatkins Wed 27-Mar-13 13:32:08

"
Next newsletter, there's a message from the cah who organises it to drum up donations with the proviso ".....please no tins of chickpeas or weird things from the back of your cupboard....".

shock Horrified but grin at the same time. Stupid cow! I love chickpeas!

"
Or get a pinny with "I'm with Bitch-face" on and stand next to her." grin

I think that 50 pee a cake would be better. 50p would also stop the greedy biffs buying PLATEFULS at a time. Seriously, one dad bought TEN CAKES the last sale and then they had to turn people away from the sale because they ran out of cakes. This is why they're so desperate for cacks. Because they keep selling out early. Well, price them more realistically, you thick mares, and you will have a more steady sale.

Stick those sparkler things in them.

Nancy66 Wed 27-Mar-13 13:32:50

at the sale just go along and stick your finger in all of the 'real' cakes.

FayeKorgasm Wed 27-Mar-13 13:33:23

OP. I would much much rather have a chocolate cornflake cake than a manky old fairy cake any day.

I can't believe how bitchy some people are. Definitely pelt her!

Iamcountingto3 Wed 27-Mar-13 13:33:29

Yup, definitely bling the buggers up with every sprinkle & mini egg known to man and then practiced looking surprised & confused when they sell out before anything else. The wander round innocently saying "wow, x said these wouldn't sell - & the kids loved them - wouldn't have thought....?"

tabulahrasa Wed 27-Mar-13 13:33:39

I'd just send her a message back...

Ah well, they can go in the pile of cakes nobody wants then, next to your lemon drizzle cake - HAHA!

I mean she can't complain, look its got haha on the end and everything.

anotheryearolder Wed 27-Mar-13 13:33:50

OMG Katie brilliant!

Dont tell anyone but for 12 years I iced Tescos plain fairycakes.
I had a stash in the freezer and just got a tray out each time - iced them badly- thats the secret or they look too perfect and transferred into a tin of my own. biscuit anyone grin

MarmaladeTwatkins Wed 27-Mar-13 13:34:07

Cacks? Oh yes. All of the cacks all of the time.

minouminou Wed 27-Mar-13 13:34:34

Yeah, Baroness!

Mini Eggs, Easter chick, sparkler, cocktail umbrella.

Go on.....you know you want to.....

DontmindifIdo Wed 27-Mar-13 13:34:35

NO NO NO! Don't put that comment given she's done this so publicly and you know her cakes didn't sell last time put:

"Oh, I thought last year the cornflake cakes sold out first and it was the dull things that no one really likes that were left - I seem to recall there was a lemon drissle cake left last year, I hope whoever made that has ben advised to make something a bit more popular this year!"

Back atcha bitch!

olgaga Wed 27-Mar-13 13:34:43

Gosh that is really rude.

I only baked cakes for the cake stall once after I saw the pathetic prices they charged for cakes I'd spent about £7 on ingredients to make, plus hours spent making them.

I now just go and spend money on cakes and tombola instead!

GetOeuf Wed 27-Mar-13 13:34:52

Oh my god I desperately want a tea towel with MOTHER FUCKER emblazoned on it.

Do you reckon there is a market for twee floral goods with swear words embroidered on.

CUNT napkins.
COCKSUCKER tea cosies
ARSEHOLE tabards.

HazzleMcDazzle Wed 27-Mar-13 13:34:59

Well seeing as she's been so snotty on a public forum, she's going to look like such a prize dick when your crispy cakes sell out quickly then!

I'm organising a PTA cake stall for this afternoon, and would kill to get cakes like these. If you can get them over to deepest Essex by about 3pm I'll gladly have them!
