Here’s a Contest I’ll Never Win

Cookie magazine is running a cake-decorating contest. Send them a pic of your best effort, and you could win some groovy prizes!

How do I know I’ll never win? Reason #1: I took a cake decorating class last week at the Brooklyn Kitchen, and this was my result:

It ain’t pretty, that’s for sure. Lord knows how I’m going to pull off the Handy Manny cake (complete with Manny, his toolbox, and all his tools) that junior has demanded–uh, requested–for his birthday two weeks from now.

Reason #2: This speaks for itself.

I have many skills, and I know that. But cake decorating is most definitely not one of them.
