Bake off

By sadman - 07/05/2011 23:10 - United States

Today, it's my three month anniversary with my girlfriend and so I decided to bake her a cake from scratch. It took me three hours, a call to my mom, three different recipe books, and half my pantry. On the way to her house, I stopped to pick up flowers and left the cake in the car. It melted. FML

Baked cakes don't melt.

You would have been ok with just the flowers man. Who celebrates 3 months anyway?

flowers would have been perfect and/or taking her out to dinner. I'd xnay this cake idea until it's her birthday.

50- The correct answer is "high school kids" I'll bet anything my 25 year old girlfriend would give me a weird look if I tried to celebrate a monthaversary. It stops being cute and borders into desperation after high school. My ex's bestfriend was just bragging about her 27 monthaversary the other day.. And making big plans. She's 19-20 years old. It's simply disturbing. And it's obvious that the guy's been completely emasculated. Monthaversaries, aside from maybe at 6 months, after high school are just bad, in my opinion. But have fun celebrating your 60th monthaversary. And wedding monthaversaries. If you need those to keep the spark, maybe you oughta blow out the candle.

when I was 23, my boyfriend celebrated our 1 month anniversary and I thought it was a bit strange... we were together for almost 4 years and that first month anniversary is what I remember most.

61- Emasculated? Really? That's a bit of a harsh judgment to take away from baking a cake. Though I do agree that celebrating months is a little extreme...

I'm 15, and my relationship is over a year now (1 year, 5 months) and we've NEVER celebrated a month being together, just a year :)

# 61 - Emasculated? That's a little harsh :) I know a lot of people who likes/liked to celebrate monthaversaries within the first year of their relationships. I don't think That's desperate, it's just something some people want to do. Just because I don't bother, why shouldn't they if it makes THEM happy? :)

Sorry, that was to 61.

WHAT? a kiss for such hard work? well lucky you warned me, not worth it if there's no bj or sex in the equation!

three recipe books? how hard can baking a cake be?

my fiancé and I celebrated our monthaviersarries for the first year. he would make a bunch of little detailed things for them and when it was our year anniversary he gathered parts of all the things gave me and decorated the dinerroom with them.

Its true, damn guy be desperate!

Sorry, the emasculated thing was about my ex's friend's boyfriend, at 27 months. My bad =) Though OP so desperately trying to bake a cake at 3 months seems to be pointing in that direction.

It should be mensiversary. Latin mensis for month. It's not a fully recognised word yet, but it would be the correct form. Anniversary is from Latin annus. Also, sometimes melted cake is better. For example, I love iced cream cake when it's melting.

61, only people in high school refer to people as ex best friends.....

He didn't say "ex best friend." He said his ex's best friend, as in his ex girlfriends, (I'm assuming) best friend.

why do they need to "spark" up the relationship after 3months???they dont even know eachothers favorite color yet.theyre still gettin to know spark needed

61- fully agree with you. my girlfriend can never make any plan on the 7th of every month cause it's her "anniversary" (stylishly know why people don't get that that word is for ANNUAL occasions). she's celebrating her 19 month "anniversary" and it makes me want to stab myself to death so o don't have to hear about it month after month.

I have never understood celebrating each month. When I was 15 with my first boyfriend I even said that I'm not celebrating it, because if anything it just shows how playful and not serious the relationship really is. I was with him over a year, so clearly not celebrating them doesn't hinder anything.

Nah that's just something ppl who say ily in a week do. Very high school, I know because I did it. Plus why do you need to keep the spark alive after only 3 months? The honeymoon phase is 6 months. OP I say nix this and write her a poem if you want, but hey each couple is different.

Amazing guys :p

Baked cakes don't melt.

Ice cream cake?

KatrinaKitten 16

Haha, I know :(

Baked cakes do melt when they have icing on and in them. Also there's only one way to recover from this kind of set back... It's a dick in a box time!

I'm also betting the OP probably didn't make it right.

I have to agree with rbg. It shouldn't take that much effort to bake a cake and it certainly shouldn't melt that quickly. OP did something wrong. Three recipes? Was it a tiered cake?

it could still be an ice cream cake. have you had one? it's layers of baked cake and ice cream.

The icing or any writing will melt, but the cake is still edible! So it's not a complete loss :)

Sometimes an ice cream cake has a baked center...

the icing melts. I think. i still think you couldve given her the cake though. if there was that much frosting that it melted, then you probably didn't bake much.

wow. you are truly a dumbass. you can't bake an ice cream cake!

199 - She realized two minutes later what she said & corrected herself. So really, you look like the dumbass here.

dude you must be a righty bc your right arm is much bigger than your left. try southpawin it sometime

199- if you can deep fry ice cream I'm sure there's SOME way it can be baked. and p.s, before you insult people, do a little review of your post before you come out with "you guys are truly a dumbass".

#3: great answer

the frosting melted, I know, the writers wording is confusing...

fairygirl88 ... you are the dumbass smh

Is your picture a piece by Salvador Dali?

Thats what you get for leaving the cake inside a hot car.

That's what you get for being an idiot and thinking that there is such a thing as a 3 month anniversary as well.

KatrinaKitten 16

It's the thought that counts.

Yeah. I'd be so happy if my boyfriend bakes me a cake. So sweet :)

too bad!!! guess now you could just buy one like you could have done in the first place

noelykins1 19
