Dedicated to Grandma Bridget

My Grandma Bridget was one hot number in her day.

Her unique birthday, 10-10-10, guaranteed she'd be different.

She lived a colorful life and had many stories.

I'm sure many went to her grave with her.

Our family jokes still revolve around her sexual innuendos. Until the day she died, well into her 80's, she continued to check herself out in the full length mirror to confirm she still had it going on. Anything she looked at or talked about, she found naughtiness in.

So, when a supplier dropped this "Bumpy Cake" off at the office, I channeled Grandma Bridget and immediately saw more than cake.

Bon Appetit
( Grandma would probably say "Bone Appetite")



P.S. "The Bumpy Cake" is a "Saunders" original recipe and usually looks like this:

OMG, I haven't had one of those cakes in years! They are soooo yummy. I was always so busy eating the cake that it never registered what it looked like. Too funny.

I was all set to say I can't wait to bite into it until I read Ron's comment. FYR (for your readers) The cake ended up in my freezer and will be served on Christmas Day...in honor of Grandma B. LOL

So, it normally looks like a Hostess Cupcake of some sort and the quad man tools are unique to your family.

We all have our Christmas traditions...

LOL!!! My grammy also has quite the naughty sense of humor. Upon being introduced to almost anyone she immediately tells whatever dirty joke is in her head. Here's one for the season:

Why was the snowman smiling?


He heard the snow-blower was coming.
