A recipe for your Royal Wedding-crazed roomies

April 28th, 2011 · 38 comments

Coverage starts at 4 a.m. EST, but there’s no need for early-morning fanfare. Just pop this in the oven Thursday night and leave it on the counter. Goes great with cucumber sandwiches!

Sugar & Spice Cake

And yes, those are raisins. You might call it “The American Take on Spotted Dick.” (You could also call it several other more punning names, but my, wouldn’t that be vulgar!)

    Are those raisins? Chocolate drops? Or (most passive-aggressively of all) rat poos?

      I’ll take “rat poo” as a variation on “punning”.

    Speaking of shrivelled fruit, was it ever decided whether Camilla would be invited to the wedding?

    (I had to make that comment despite my not being the least bit interested in this eVent, because it’s nearly midnight, and I am awake against my will. Much like the bride…)

      why would she not be? dodi al-fayed i’m not so sure about though…..

      pretty tenuous link to the royal wedding here; what’s the idea exactly – british people eat cake? don’t americans?

      dodi died in the crash with Diana so inviting him might be a little too passive aggressive..

      zomboid, @2.1, I think Kerry just had the urge to grab the spotted dick and run with it.

      @ park rose and zomboid,

      Is that the kinky version of a 3-legged race?

    I’m having trouble with my sense of scale. Honestly that looks like a cat food bowl.

    is it passive aggressive to mention that you’re in EDT not EST since it’s daylight saving time now?

      Blimey! If those are raisins then that’s a bloody big cat.

    Rat poo on the cake is one thing, but why the diarrhea poo on the edge of the bowl? THAT’S passive aggressive.

    Is it a cake? From this direction the dish looks more like a ramekin than a cake pan. Maybe it’s a steamed pudding? That would make it more British.

    But how can you have a pudding if you don’t eat your meat?

    • #6.1   park rose

      Well then, it’s obviously not pudding, but just another brick in the wall. Especially if I cooked it.

      It looks like baked oatmeal to me, which is actually a pretty tasty way to eat oatmeal.

      If being too damn loud got me baked breakfast goodies, I’d turn it up to 11.

      Or it could be a sugar and spice cake, but I only got there by scrolling over the pic to see if I could get that last raisin word.

      Yeah, it starts with “You’re too damn loud” then after a while it becomes ” I put sleeping pills in here, goodnight!”.

    Jesus effin’ Christ, there’s a raisin missing in the damn thing. I had to look at the picture a dozen times muttering to myself “what the hell is LCUD?” before I realized what I was actually reading.

    I’m thinking this could inspire a new business venture for PA Notes: Sell cakes and cookies with little passive aggressive notes baked on top. I imagine bringing in a box of donuts for my coworkers, frosted with little notes like “Stop Showing Me Pictures of Your Kids” or “Lay Off The Garlic Pills.”

      Combine this with the sexy cake shop and we have a winner of an idea.

    • #8.2   Kara bang

      Good idea. There are really only two types of baked goods I imagine someone needing: the passive-aggressive donut or the erotic cake. Between those two, we should have everyone’s needs met.

      Yes, I need a cake shaped like a woman going to the bathroom with a message that says “Your Momma Doesn’t Work Here”.

      In chocolate.

    Would “Contact” at the top of the page not have been a better place to post such an inquiry? Or maybe you’re just hoping for a passive-aggressive note in reply to your post.

    Pfffft.

    I too thought it read “You are the damn LCUD.” I had no idea what “LCUD” was and even thought it was some sort of royalty-related term I’m unfamiliar with. Seriously, this was a frustrating one, especially when I finally figured it out and realized the cake itself has nothing to do with the wedding. Too much work!!

    Although this is the perfect form of passive-aggressiveness. What better way to get your point across then by filling up whomever is offending you and a note within?
