Now I'm not saying a boy can't enjoy a pink cake covered with donuts and sprinkles, but if we're gonna follow hetero-normative social gender constructs, it's pretty clear who this cake is for.
Don't let anyone tell you that you can't combine foods you love to create a delicious chimera. For instance, one of the best burgers I've ever eaten had peanut butter, bacon and a fried egg on it. Sounds bizarre, tastes AMAZING. Also, it was the only thing I ate that day, talk about a calorie bomb!
Imagine waking up on Sunday morning after a super fun night out on the town for your friend's birthday. You're exhausted, you're sore, your voice is hoarse from proclamations of merriment, your hair smells funny and you still have one sock on. Now imagine that this donut appears on your nightstand. Feeling a bit better now? I thought so.
Next time you are hosting a quilting bee (and I know it's soon! Don't lie!) you can present snacks on little appropriate stands made out of thread spools. Themed presentation of snacks is one of the little things that make get-togethers extra special.
Now that I'm getting older and slowing down a little (LIES!) and not raging six nights a week like I once did, I can imagine eating bright green donuts shaped like sweet little bears without feeling queasy in the least. There was a time when even the hint of breakfast would send me wretching. I'm happy to be able to appreciate the cuteness and whimsy of green icing.
