Today, I woke up early and spent hours baking and icing a three-tier cake for my friend's eighteenth birthday, which is this evening. I just found out my mother threw it in the compost bin because she's on a diet and it was "tempting" her. FML

Wow, that's hella selfish, I would make her buy one to make up for it.

The amount of rage that would well up within me could never be measured by any means of the measurement system, should I have been in that situation... Your mother had a lousy excuse and I really hope she does something to make up for her selfish behavior.

Well what did you say to her?

That OP is gonna throw her in the trash and say she was tempting her.

I think she said something along the lines of "That really rustled my jimmies".

She should have asked her to buy a new one.

"I'm sorry. I shouldn't have been so thoughtless by leaving a giant cake right in front of you. I also don't need to buy my friend's affection with an oversized pastry -- the presence of my spirit ought to be all she wants for her birthday." Yeah, that's probably what the OP said.

I think it was along the lines of FUUUUUJUUUUUUUUH... Btw 21, you can't usually buy a 3 tier cake and get it the same night.

OP, your mother is a bitch.

Yea a bitch that is gonna spend hours out of her life making another cake.

Op did your mom also ground you for not telling her what her birthday present was? If so, I think she knows she's a bitch

27 So more friend can't do something nice for each other? I don't see how she is buying affection by going out of get way and making a cake for her friend. Its her 18th birthday so maybe she wanted to go all out for her.

I find it interesting that people ask OP questions and expect them to get answered.

72) OP's can, and sometimes do, reply to comments on their FML

And?? Just take it out and eat it!! Don't waste food!!!!

She ruined your cake; ruin her diet by injecting bacon into her vegetables.

She's probably a fat ass who knows next to nothing about dieting. Freakin idiot

I wonder if Op's bitch of a mom is one of those obese woman that walk around with those skinny jeans. I bet she opened her fridge and ate some twinkys right after that. Fucking bitch.

Op's mom is a ..... Tell her next time to ask about the cake and never throw it away. She owes someone a new cake even if she is on a diet. Also, how did Op's mom not know about it?

Wow, that's hella selfish, I would make her buy one to make up for it.

Allthough that probably wouldn't feel, look and taste as good or even similar it is one solution. The other solution would be to make her help you baking a new one and let her pay for the ingredients.

Make her BAKE another one

I'd call her a bitch [right in front of her its]!

But then it wouldn't have been as good

Omg! What is wrong with her? How can you throw out a three tier cake? So sorry OP.

Hire a tow truck to scrap your moms car then say “I'm sorry but it was tempting me to go joyriding”

Or burn all her cash and credit cards and say I'm sorry they were tempting me to steal them.

73- now that's just stupid

And the real icing on the cake was...

No, bringing a car to a scrapyard is the stupid thing. People are idiots on this website some time, so burning your cash is stupid but throwing a car out isn't. IM DONE

130, you can get a car out of the pound but you can't replace probably thousands of dollars that probably benefits you as well.

You shoulda hid it somewhere! ;o

A 3 tier cake is pretty big...I don't think that would have worked very well.

No no no 27, the hobo idea would be horrible, it would just end up peeing in some chair

I usually hide cakes by eating them. I never find them again....

She might of never thought that she needed it to his from anybody!

Baustigt, this is clearly a job for the Idiot-English Translation Engine. *whirr* *click* *bzzz* *DING* "She might never have thought that she needed to hide it from anybody! I sniffed paint thinner and skunk fumes just before typing this!" You're welcome.

You know guys, 47 only missed like two words. She said "She might of never thought that she needed it to his from anybody" so really just change HIS to HID and move TO HID so it's before IT and the sentence makes perfect sense. Two step process people.

105- not nearly as funny though...

Blaackandproud - By your logic, her comment would be "She might of never thought that she needed to hid it from anybody" which still is a grammar nightmare. The phrase "might of" does not exist unless you're using "might" as a noun (eg, "This herculean task will require the might of 1000 men").

Well I don't think she was expecting her own mother to throw it away.

I don't understand why #4 has so many thumbs down when all he said was to hide it somewhere..? That seems reasonable, i mean i have a family of 6 and i'd probably do the same...... Unless he got thumbed down because he said "shoulda"?

The amount of rage that would well up within me could never be measured by any means of the measurement system, should I have been in that situation... Your mother had a lousy excuse and I really hope she does something to make up for her selfish behavior.

This x100. Maybe I'm over-reacting, but cooking is something that's very important to me, and I hate to see hours of hard work even slightly ruined by crappy icing or an accidental hole poked in it. I couldn't imagine my rage if someone actually THREW OUT something I'd made. D:

I could imagine your reaction 22. To people watching, it could be from somewhat humorous to "HOLY HELL! RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!"

#7, I don't think rage levels could be measured -- there's no such thing as a Rage Machine. There's Rage Against The Machine, but I don't think they'd improve your mood.

I agree with you 100%. Some FML's make me really angry and this is one of them.

Same here... Certain FML's just tick me off & this one takes cake... Sorry, I couldn't help myself... I know, I know. Thumb me down. I deserve it.

I found you pun funny and worthy of a thumbs up.. it just puts the icing on the FML cake.

You know, what if op's mom lied about throwing it away? I bet she ate it.

Send her to fat camp and let the hunger games begin!

I fell of my chair laughing because of your picture.

Mmmm...at least she thought the cake looked good?

Whatever happened to common sense! If a three tier cake was sitting in my fridge I wouldn't touch it even if i weren't on a diet cause it would obviously be for an occasion! Didn't it occur to her that someone has put a lot of their precious time and money into it?

Exactly. I would said I don't give a shit if you were "tempted" the cake was never offered to you. You weren't allowed to eat it even if your fat ass wanted to.

#71, that's probably why she threw it out cuz she wasn't allowed to eat it and got jealous and threw it away so no one could have it

Oh no ! Throw out whatever she eats for her diet to be equal .

That's too obvious. Sabotage her diet! Weight gain energy bars!

A tone of work for you a peace of cake for her.... Lol huh huh

Is the tone of work the alarm clock in the morning? That tone sucks. At least I can get some peaceful cake to calm my nerves

As much as the idea of a peace cake intrigues me (make cake not war?) my grammar Nazi fingers are twitching and I cant help but correct them. Its TON or TONNE not tone and your after PIECE of cake (or at least I am.. yum)
