Birthday Prank

Since my daughter's birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks, I've had birthday party planning on my mind. That put me in remembrance of a fun memory from years ago.

When I was a teenager, my aunt, siblings and mother collaborated to play a birthday trick on me. They cut two sponges into the shape of a double layer cake and frosted the thing with real, chocolate frosting. They handed me a knife to cut the cake- which of course, turned out to be an impossible task. My siblings' eruption into laughter I think was my final clue that this was no ordinary cake.
