Anyone know a better way to draw a pipe with frosting?

Me: Like my cake?
Friend: Yes. What is it supposed to be?... a vasectomy?
Me: No.... why? (laughing my head off)
Friend: It looks like a congrats on the vasectomy cake.
Me: Oh... really? (still laughing)
Friend: What is that supposed to be?
Me: He got a new job selling pipe. PIPE!

This is when a congratulatory cake for your husband getting a new job goes terribly wrong. I guess cake decorating isn't my forte.

Isn't a vasectomy considered a pipe job?

Maria said...

I should have called you when my husband had a vasectomy 2 years ago. Although he probably would have appreciated it more if it were made of ice so he could put it on his nuts. Was that inappropriate? Oh well...

Congratulations to John!

Oh that cake just looks so wrong!! Sorry meems but it just does. Maybe I'm just dirty minded.

Congrats on the Job though, and Mimi that was VERY thoughtful of you.

Vasectomy is better than what I was thinking.... Maybe "congrats on the new job" would have been a good choice...any time you are drawing something with frosting that could be mistaken for a penis you might want to rethink it.... Sorry that I couldn't be there to make his cake because as we all now know...I rock at it!

Sarah said...

Oh my goodness, that is so funny! And I think that a vasectomy wouldn't have crossed my mind... has it been on your friend's mind? haha The cake is adorable, you are so cute and congrats to John on his new job!

Danielle said...

Yay!! Who wants vasectomy cake...who really needs kids anyway? Sterilization is the new black.

Congrats on the job.
