Disappearing Cake

The other day, I baked a cake. After I frosted it, I left it on the counter. It was covered, on a cake dish.

The next morning, the cake had mysteriously disappeared. Usually my husband is the culprit. I asked him about, but he didn't have a clue as to where it went. The odd thing was that the entire cake dish had vanished, and there weren't any tell-tale forks and plates in the sink.

I figured it would eventually show up.

It did. Sort of. The cake plate returned to the counter, with only some cake crumbs and chocolate frosting on it.

"Kids!" I said. "What happened to this cake?"

They came downstairs and grinned. "Midnight snack!"

    1. No. Bootsy doesn't have a sweet tooth. If it was tuna fish-flavored, he might have wanted a nibble.

  3. I thought Schultz would be the culprit. That poor little dog seems to get blamed for everything.

    1. Nope. Schultz doesn't eat cake. He prefers venison.

  8. Was the cake for them? Perhaps you need a locked cabinet in your pantry.

    1. It would have been nice if they would've washed it, too. :)

  13. And SOOOOO nutritious. LOL. If I wasn't such a food Nazi, I could see that happening around here. As is, they know they're dead if they take off with unauthorized sweets.

  15. I got diabetes just reading that. I wouldn't even be mad, though. Eating an entire cake is kind of impressive.

    1. I feel like I've gotten diabetes, too, just from thinking about the amount of sugar they ingested. Very impressive, indeed!

  17. Yeah, we have a big rat that similarly enjoys midnight feasts. That, and Mr T once slipped into a parallel universe in which he was robbed of two slices of pizza from the box he was bringing home.
