Beef, It’s What’s for Dinner

28 Jun

Being the multi-faceted bloggers that we are, we decided to try our hand at baking this week. After eating burgers at the Sherwood Diner (this never happened, but we did consider ordering them), we were inspired to bake a Big Mac cake. We researched different recipes and finally settled on one from Women’s Day magazine. If busy moms have time to make a hamburger cake, then why wouldn’t we?

Elaheh did make a three-tiered wedding cake once, so for the record, we are not novice bakers. But somehow our hamburger cake did not resemble the picture in Women’s Day. Safe to say that we are not going to tweet this post at the Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten. (in a garden?)

First of all, we’d like to issue a complaint to the mag for publishing unclear directions. We thought that two boxes of cake mix yielded two 9-inch rounds, but when assembling the burger we noticed that we were missing the top bun. Seriously, what’s a bowl cake?

We also took some creative liberties by opting for a yellow cake mix when the recipe called for a pound cake mix. Another factor that contributed to the disaster that came out of the oven could’ve been Justin Bieber softly crooning in the kitchen. *

*Justin Bieber wasn’t actually with us (or was he?). His songs were just on repeat.

Thanks Women's Day!

The Original Big Mac Cake

Compare to:


In conclusion, a waste of time and resources.

Things that keep us up at night:

  1. Tara Lipinski’s guest roles on 7th Heaven
  2. Either you’re a doctor or you’re not.
  3. When Alyssa is 50, her resume will still say that she majored in Science in Society.
  4. What do Pippa Middleton and Michael Jackson have in common? We’re not really sure either.
  5. How many times do you have to tweet at Tahj Mowry to get him to retweet?

Daily Picks!! So uninspired

Song: Man in the Mirror. RIP MJ.

TV Show: Felicity. She followed her high school crush to college. That’s all we’re saying.

Movie: Just Go With It starring JenAn and Adam Sandler. Great cameo on Andy Roddick’s part. Wooo! Go Grand Slams!!

Youtube video: Hot Snowboarding Girl.

    First of all, thanks for the glorious shoutout to MJ. amen to that beautiful man and everything he left on this earth (including but not limited to MinM and Start of Something. rip.

    Second of all, CIGA AMen to @Mallory, “sick of the d list celebs like tahj mowry thinking they have the right to not respond on twitter.” He’s not even smart…

    Third of all, I’d like to propose a preview to the WEEKEND ON MV post, which will inevitably be the greatest post SoEC has ever seen. Maybe an exclusive on tracking down the town Moho or State Beach, what’s really in the water? Since it has been EXTREMELY saliferous this year. What gives? Just some ideas to get you thinkin…
