MumblingRagDoll Sun 26-Jun-11 01:21:31's minor...I know it is....but I have o know the general thoughts of others.

I baked a cake tonight as a dry run for DDs brthday party next week....turned it out...PERFECT chocolate sponge...told DH that I would decorate it in the cream would be frsh etc.

He just wandered in "Cakes nice"

He's taken a fucking CHUNK off the corner and desicrated its perfection...which I was going to decorate tomorrow.
I know it's minor...I have sliced it away..right across so the cake is nw straight edged again on all sides...but I KNOW it's not as it was.

I make cakes on a semi regular basis and they're cut and eaten as a family...would you take a chunk off someone's freshly baked cake? He also TURNED IT OVER after taking his corner.....revealing the risen side...when I had already turned it upon taking it out of the tin....I had to turn it over again to get the flat side on top! angry

I prbably would care but this is a practice cake!

I'm inclined to take your side just on principle cos all men are dicks as far as I am concerned tonight. But, probably, if you hadn't actually said "don't eat it", you've got to expect that he might. Even though he knew you were going to ice it tomorrow. Next time you make something for him, just have part of it yourself and tell him how tasty it was as you give it to him. e.g cup of tea (drink half of it).

grin He also drank my bottle of cider earlier.

fat bastard.

It's the equivelent of me bashing his fish on the head and cooking it when HE caught it.

It had cooled.

[refuses to get over it]

Just take big bites out of all of his food in future.

GypsyMoth Sun 26-Jun-11 01:40:04

Oh you buggers.

I am so disappointed in you all.

madhattershouse Sun 26-Jun-11 01:43:48

It was a practise cake by your own admission...get stuck in too!

DoubleNegativePanda Sun 26-Jun-11 01:46:43

Custard you've just made me burst out laughing. DD said "stop being weird and laughing at your phone!" but I can't stop chuckling. Jeez that was funny, like you couldn't keep it a secret one second longer. grin

OP, I was going to say that yore being a bit touchy, but if he's also drunk your cider he's gone too far. Lamp him!

MumblingRagDoll Sun 26-Jun-11 01:47:09

But I haven't practiced decorating it! The test model must be the same as the finished article!

I am leaning towards clemency now...too many of you telling me IABU.

I am ever so slightly perfectionist.

DoubleNegativePanda Sun 26-Jun-11 01:48:09

Although Custy seeing as how you've just quit smoking I'm not surprised you'd steal someone's cake!

MumblingRagDoll Sun 26-Jun-11 01:48:43

Thank you Panda...maybe that's what sent me over. First the loss of the cider and now my cake perfection.

MumblingRagDoll Sun 26-Jun-11 01:52:19

I'm going to bed now. To think up little ways in which I can even things up. He's going fishing next week...I may just go along and fillet his catches before he can! Or as advised have a bite of ALL his food for a week.

Here's your soup...."slurp"'s your steak "gnash" and so on. Thank's for the advice!

Just tell him that was very annoying and that he owes you a present. (He might even get you one!) I expect you'll feel better tomorrow morning.

Triphop Sun 26-Jun-11 02:23:14

As it's already been cut and all, can the rest of us have a bit?

GwendolineMaryLacey Sun 26-Jun-11 02:28:24

And she usually low carbs. At the moment all cakes are fucked round Custy grin

I really want to link that cake cartoon here but I don't know what it is!

Mummy2LZ Sun 26-Jun-11 03:39:06

YADNBU My DH does the same and it REALLY PISSES me off too! lol I baked a heart shaped cake as a farewell cake and he came and broke the pointy end of and crammed it all into his mouth!!!!!!! ARGHHHHHHH.
Ok feel better now.
Not a big issue but annoying!

DD2 (at age 3) once washed a chocolate cake I had left cooling. It had some remnants of the flour I had dusted the pan with on it that offended her sense of propriety.

giraffesCantZumba Sun 26-Jun-11 04:32:21

lol at low carb burt turning in to a cake muncher! Well done on the stopping fags!

I would get angry about this, my husband wouldn't do this, I suspect because he knows I'd be angry. If he's desperate for a cake he can make his own. Chopping bits off a large cake isn't on. It is the selfishness and lack of respect and affection for the person making the cake who you know wants you to leave it alone that is the issue here. I would see this as done out of spite to upset me or uncontrollable greed, neither of which are good qualities in a partner and I would be telling him this angrily.

Once when I had baked a cake with ds2 age 4 I asked him to break up the chocolate for the icing into a bowl while I was sitting on the sofa breastfeeding ds3.

He shouted through that he needed a bigger bowl, I was a bit hmm

Then he proudly brought through the two bowls of broken up CAKE shock

How dare people desecrate the practise cakes!

Can't sympathise. I'm usually lucky if people go near mine. Am not Natural Cook.
