I'm currently working on an old wives tales blog post which is going to be up soon and really funny. This couples friends have a tradition of baking a cake that is half blue and half pink. The cake is then frosted and placed on a turning plate. The father-to-be is charged to turn the plate and the expectant mother then cuts a slice. Whatever color she cuts determines whether or not they are having a boy or a girl.
Because I don't know how to bake......well correction I can but it's not pretty, I asked my next door neighbor and friend if she would mind baking the cake for me. She was happy to do it and brought the cake over this afternoon.
Here is the frosted cake inside one half is pink and the other half is blue but only she knows which is which
V$ turned the cake a few times and finally I cut a slice and boy, oh boy what did we get
This is me and Melisa aka the cake lady
So here is the cake with both sides blue and pink and the slice that V$ and I selected. :) We'll see if this holds any truth in July.
