Today, I got up at 5 am to bake a surprise birthday cake for my 16-year-old son. I put the cake on the table and went to call my son. "Surprise!" When I came back 30 seconds later, the cake was all gone and the dog was licking his lips. My son won't even believe I made a cake. FML

The empty mess on the table clearly showing a dog got into the cake seems like legitimate evidence.


#1 That doesn't apply here when the gesture was meant for someone else who won't believe the OP actually made one.

Did you also wake up earlier the day before to make cinnamon rolls too, only to find they were knocked over and mostly eaten when you came home later that day with your dog sitting happily nearby?...

You have never seen a hungry dog, have you? They will lick things to a polish.

Not the target audience, but an audience nonetheless. The dog appreciated it, I'm sure OP!

Just like humans, some dogs are super loyal, and some are just assholes.

Just show him the box of cake mix/ingredients!

Dogs are notorious eaters... Prolly should have put it up higher.

wouldn't there be evidence, like a dirty plate or crumbs? wouldn't the kitchen still smell delicious??! either way I'm sorry for your loss... dogs always get into the good stuff before you even know what's happening!

I guess you should have taken the cake to his bedroom to wish him, OP. NOT seeing the cake when you returned must certainly have been a surprise for you. Haha. Happy birthday to your son.

Surprise cake for breakfast? Will you be MY mom?

*Cats are evil. Never trust them! Fixed that for you.

Haha. Thanks, but I stand by what I said!

Moskaaa7 makes false claimes, never trust her!

Had a husky collie mix jump up onto the counter and practically inhale a piping hot made from scratch apple pie just removed from the oven. The filling was too hot to eat and surely hurt and burned the dogs mouth. No way he would have been able to taste it. Lesson learned the hard way . . . by the baker, not by the dog.

Just teach them not to eat from the table, and never ever feed them table food.
