There’s No Pleasing Some People!

Published by on

Well one small contrary person.

Georgia asked me to make her a play cake today. We looked on the internet and she pointed out the largest cake possible, I reluctantly agreed. After an early supper, I sat down and made her this cake.

Triple Layer Chocolate Strawberry Felt Cake
Several hours later … I presented it to her with a big –> TaDA!

I expected cheering and clapping. Instead, I received this sort of reaction …

I didn't want Cake ...
Apparently, she wanted a phone!

God give me strength!

The joys of parenting! I know how you feel. I made lunch today and it was not what my 6 year old wanted and I got the same reaction. I guess they do out grow it.

witchypoo · February 24, 2008 at 10:01 pm

Dude, I knew it was felt, but I was drooling.

That stings! It’s a fabulous cake. I bet she’ll play with it often once she gets over the grumpy moment!

Audra Marie · February 24, 2008 at 10:27 pm

Okay, how did you make the cake? I caught a picture of mine bawling just today. I can use it for leverage later in life. :)

I love the cake! Georgia’s reaction is also priceless – “like mom can’t you read my mind!”

Tasha · February 24, 2008 at 10:54 pm

That cake looks pretty cool – what did you use for the cake part? Is it all felt with cardboard or something?

Cocoa · February 24, 2008 at 11:30 pm

Oh to be three again and cry when something isn’t just as I expected!

I think your cake turned out fantabulous!

Oh my Gosh, that is AMAZING. You are incredible with your felt food. I’d love to enter your contest with this comment (and I posted about the contest, too).

Noreen · February 25, 2008 at 12:09 am

Wow, send it to my house my girls would dance with joy!!
my girls usually ask me for something bigger when I make them something, like when I make a cupcake and they say “thank you mommy can you make me a cake now”

You did a great job.
She’ll love it tomorrow, I’m sure.

That cake looks good enough to eat.

I bet if you had made a phone, she would have wanted a cake! Toddlers–the fun never stops!

nikkapotamus · February 25, 2008 at 6:42 am

I think I would have cried too. Because I couldn’t eat it! It looks so yummy! You are such a great mommy.

Jenny M · February 25, 2008 at 7:10 am

Thats an amazing cake!! and Good for the figure as well= Wow- a phone huh? Who knew?

Andrea · February 25, 2008 at 7:43 am

That cakes looks SOOO good – I could definitely eat it if it wasn’t felt! ;) Hmmm…but a phone? Shucks…maybe next time.

Cute cake, hopefully she will come around and decide she does want the cake.

Deb · February 25, 2008 at 8:10 am

I cannot believe the cake. I almost thought it was real! You crack me up. and so does Georgia – gotta love her. :)

Julie · February 25, 2008 at 8:43 am

I think it looks good enough to eat!

liz @ monkey Kisses · February 25, 2008 at 9:06 am

OH my and it was georgous!!!!! i want to eat all the felt foods you’ve been making.. I think they may be less calories than the real things.. but i can imagine how great they taste!

Heather · February 25, 2008 at 9:25 am

I’m glad to know that I’m not the only mom in the universe who thinks (on several occasions throughout the day) that she’s fully met and exceeded the needs of her child (FAR beyond the call of duty) only to receive an all out temper tantrum in return. Sometimes I just can’t wait until we get on the same wavelength…it sure would save a lot of time, effort, and frustration. God help us all! :)

Cindi Hoppes · February 25, 2008 at 9:44 am

You are truly amazing! Your cake looks so good and real! Please send it my way along with your laundry! Cindi

jenB · February 25, 2008 at 10:13 am

How boring would a phone have been?????

How on earth do you find the time to do all this felt food? That cake is absolutely adorable and Georgia doesn’t know what she’s missing out on!

you poor thing. the cake is gorgeous and took a lot of time and skill…i think you deserve a medal for it.

jennifer · February 25, 2008 at 11:54 am

My daughter saw that cake and said that is my cake. It looks like a strawberry shortcake cake (the doll Strawberry Shortcake). That is beautiful.

Delicious looking cake and fun too. What a perfect toddler reaction. I get that if I forget and cut an apple in half after peeling it. The horrors of a sliced apple!!

Just imagine me standing up, cheering with pom poms, and clapping louder than you’ve ever heard a human clap. I think that cake is so fantastic! Sigh. I’m sure (I say confidently) Georgia will warm up to it…

Wow!! Love your gorgeous cake. You are really good at cooking the felt.
Georgia must love it (after she got the phone). I know how you felt with my almost 2 girl.

erin · February 25, 2008 at 4:35 pm

Awwwwwwww, the cake looks awesome….I’m sure Georgia will love it, though! Maybe not today, but probably tomorrow!!! (or when you least expect it) Isn’t that how motherhood usually works? That’s how it works at our house…lol!

Lisa · February 25, 2008 at 5:36 pm

Not to repeat others but that cake is AWESOME!!! You are very talented Georgia has no clue how blessed she is to have a mommy like you.

Kristian · February 25, 2008 at 6:59 pm

Sorry, Kim but I too, am laughing..really hard. Mostly at Georgia’s face, but also at how totally hilarious the whole situation must have been…cake…phone…cake…phone. How did you mess up on that ;)
I love the cake.
