What's your bid?


Two layers of dark devil's food chocolate, with pudding in the mix for extra moist goodness. An inch and a half of real whipped cream and crushed double stuffed mint Oreos. Real butter, butter cream frosting with Dutch cocoa and Hershey Syrup Swirls. Each piece topped with a whole double stuffed mint Oreo.

So, what's your bid?

Auction Update: After some haggling and a small fist fight it went for $29.00

o.k. no fist fight, but it made for a great "ward party" story, don't you think?

Oh my heck sis! Every time I open the fridge it smells SO good! The perfect blend of mint and dark chocolate! All the kids and Thor say to just donate the money and keep the cake!

hmmmmm....

Thanks Jamie!

Oh it looks YUM. I bet it tastes ten million times better than it looks and it looks beautiful.

You are just so NEAT

S'mee said...

Lisa, thanks! I'm hoping it "sells" well so the girls get a good start on their camp money.

Jill said...

That looks so yummy that I just licked my computer screen.
Now my tongue is dusty.
Thanks.

I remember as a kid, the scouts having a cake bake off and auction. I didn't have brothers of course, but My Dad was always involved and my Mum always made something fun.

For years, and years, I thought cakes were only as good as they looked? Isn't that odd? Id never much eaten them, and it didn't occur to me, that the *taste* of the cake is what is in the value.

It seems that is a lesson that has taken a long time to sink in, (not just with cake of course)---

What I love about this one is, it's beautiful and Yum. The oreo's, give you just a whisper of the idea, that buried beneath the chocolate cream, is something dark and scrumptious. Something more profound and worthy.

I love it-

I will give you my first born son! Let me know your address and I'll send him UPS!

S'mee said...

ah Lisa, I used to think the same! Now I look to the cook and then make my decision! Although someone smart (sis would know who) said, "You taste first with your eyes, then with your tongue." I think in many ways that's true.

Thanks again for your generous and thoughtful comments. <3!!!

Mel, I just might take you up on that bid!

$29 ??!!! I would have driven up the two hours and paid you that. Your family had to be saying something along the same lines after the aroma filled the kitchen for a day.

Lisa M. said...

TWENTY NINE DOLLARS?

OH good heavens.

HEAVENS..

Okay I am swearing now.

I'd have driven ALL the way to get it for twenty nine dollars.

*Rolling eyes*

$29.00. For *our* ward, that $29.00 may as well have been $100.00. I am not sure what the other cakes went for, but I wouldn't be surprised if the others went for $2 - $5.00. In *our* area, finances are tight and so I was amazed when I was told it sold for that amount.

That said, if I make another one, would you guys drive up and just visit for the day?

Red said...

mmmMMMMMmmm...yummy! This looks soooooo good! I'd pay $29 for it, heck I'd go all the way up to $30!

Did you make it for something special?

Jill said...

I think that cake would be worth a long car trip to your area with 4 hyper kids in a minivan with broken air conditioning in the middle of august.

Or better yet, I could leave the kids home and fly to get it.

S'mee said...

Red, they were raising $$$ for girl's camp. You need to come by sometime and I'll show you how to make one!

Jill, Just let me know when to have it ready!

Rynell said...

Looks delish! I want your recipe! (pretty please....)

S'mee said...

Rynell, I'll get it in the mail soon!
