Gotta Have Cake! FMS230





Never has there been a truer sentiment!  When I was young my aunt would make a chocolate mayonnaise cake for family birthday celebrations.  Do people even make such a thing anymore??  Sounds awful but honest it was delicious!


Jen Brum, my crafty friend from Canada, designed a sweet sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches - I hope you play along!

Everybody needs a cake on their birthday! Using the DSP for the tabletop is so cute, love the scalloped edge along with that bold diagonal stripe, it's the perfect setting for a party! This reminded me that we have leftover carrot cake in the fridge.. :)

Awesome card Linda! Love that sentiment too! And the mayonnaise cake comment made me laugh...I've had a mayonnaise cake before and it is good. But I thought that it was a midwest thing, they put mayonnaise and cream of some kind of soup on everything! :)

Mmmmmmm, chocolate cake. Mayo makes sense with it being basically eggs and oil. Bet it makes for a rich and yummy cake. Ok....now that I'm not being distracted.....this is such fun. Love the colors and that little balloon!

I have never in my life heard of a mayonnaise cake. I'll take your word for it that it was delicious, but I'm not anxious to try it! Brilliant take on the sketch. I love how the cake plate is sitting on a shelf!

Chocolate mayonnaise cake? I've never heard the like! But it sounds intriguing :) This sentiment cracks me up whenever I see it and so, so true! Fabulous card, Linda!

Hi Sharon,

Yeah - I agree, you GOTTA have cake - and eat it too.

I've found mayonaisse makes a cake nice and moist and rich.

Your card is bright and cheery.

Mayo? In CAKE?? I bet it was moist! lol I love this! I am so anti-meeting and think they need some cake...or some sort of spirits. I sure don't miss that about work! I love the fun, happy feel to this card. It just screams birthday!
