What the?!  
Watching a documentary in which a person mentions cake.
Mr Brammers: Ooh, cake! Would you like a cake tomorrow? I might bake one. I really enjoy baking cake, and I haven't made one for ages.

Mr Brammers: Why are you looking at me like that?
Me: We have been together for OVER SIXTEEN YEARS and this is the first I have heard of this!

Seriously, he has made out that producing toast is something of a trial. If I come home tomorrow and there is a perfect Victoria sponge, I may weep – equal parts delight and frustration.

Sixteen years is a VERY LONG TIME to hide cake-making skillz. I feel he should make one every week for the next sixteen years to compensate.

Oh, I'll not be able to cycle enough to work that off! One every few months ought to do it :-)

It is in the oven even now!

Sixteen years is pretty long time to go without baking if you enjoy it... I hope you get an edible cake out of this :)

He has made toast over the time ;-) There is cake in the oven, the batter was good, all bodes well, save that it is hideously late at night!

He is baking now (sure it's the middle of the night, but we're night people here ;-))

OMG, men are so annoying!!!

I have to say that it's a lot better than a friend whose husband took 18 years to mention he was gay, but yes ...

It just came out of the oven, at 1.20am, so I'm not up to eating any, but Mr B has not only knocked off a slice, but blamed me for the absence of cream, custard and ice-cream (guess who ate all of the above?)

He's a terrible man, but I like him :-)

I'm not sure what to hope for here, there will be weeping either way it seems. ;)

Cake! I want some now!

Am reminded of my aunt's trials with 3 teenage boys, each with 2 teenage male best friends who would come over after school; she still claims 9 teenage boys are collectively known as a locust plague. Microwaveable packet cake was her friend; I distinctly remember them having one pantry cupboard full of food and a second stocked only with packets of cake mix, which would be restocked weekly.

I am reminded of this because my cousins still boast of their cake making skills, based on 8 years of this.

Was there cake?
blamebramptonblamebrampton on October 20th, 2011 01:52 pm (UTC)
It is 12.51am, there is cake in the oven! I can't envision eating any of it, at least until after I've had some sleep, but still, CAKE!

Perhaps you ought to think about the possibility that he's been switched with an alternate-dimension counterpart without anyone noticing?

I am blessed with a husband who makes a fabulous cake every year for my birthday. I hope yours was good!
