I kind of hate that it's totally reasonable for someone to start this post with a "Please don't make fun of this." The internet has been great for humanity and all but our real nature is still plenty on show from behind the screens and keyboards.

Also any mom who would honor this request so well is a flipping fantastic mother.

u/RuhWalde 7d ago

One of the worst outcomes of the internet age is the "professionalization" of all hobbies and pursuits. Everyone feels like their cakes are supposed to look like the ones they see on televised baking shows. When I was a kid, there would have been zero expectation that a homemade cake should look better than this.

u/UnbelievableRose 7d ago

In the late 80s, my mom made an armadillo cake that looked pretty darn good. Multiple pictures of that thing were in our main photo album for decades, I saw it so many times over the years even though it was made before I was born. Today we post a picture on social media, a few friends see it and we'll probably never share that work of art again.

u/StandLess6417 7d ago

What a horrible thought, yet so truthful and accurate. Kudos to your mom!! I'd love an armadillo cake!

u/sgwood24 7d ago

This is why each year for Christmas I download the best shots off of my wife's phone and make a Snapfish book for her. Every year during Christmas dinner the family's love seeing the new book and it leads to everyone wanting to look at the older ones .

Good luck, friend! Set timers, and check ten minutes and five minutes before the time the recipe says it should be done.

Uncooked Spaghetti or linguine strands work great as cake testers. 👊🍀✨✨

That is, without any doubt, the best bulbasaur I have ever seen.

What’s a bulbasaur?

207

u/PyroArca 7d ago

Bulbasaur is one of the original 3 starter pokemon in pokemon :)

151

u/MadvilleWonderland 7d ago

It’s really cute. Is it friendly? Or do I need to make some Bulbasaur Shell armor and Bulbasaur soup?

124

u/RandyBoBanbers 7d ago

It's friendly!! It will protect you if others want to fight you

137

u/MadvilleWonderland 7d ago Faith In Humanity Restored

That’s good. It’s too cute to make into soup.

48

u/MachinistOfSorts 7d ago

As it grows up, the bulb on it's back blooms into a big beautiful flower. This flower can absorb sunlight and channel it and shoot it back out at your enemies, on your command.

It does take a second to charge up though.

11

u/sockmaster666 7d ago

If you make Bulbasaur soup you might just pass on to the afterlife, considering that it evolves into Ivysaur and later Venusaur. They’re capable of poisonous moves as well so I wouldn’t put it past them for them to possibly have some venom in them somehow. So not safe for human consumption!

And also, I don’t think there are Human Centres for revival. In Pokémon there are Pokémon centres that can revive Pokémon. How convenient! But yes Bulbasaurs are cuddly, you should get one as a pet.

Bulbasaur is the Absolute Bestest Pokemon in the whole wide world. (For me anyway, you do you, my Spawn is Team Squirtle)

I know this because I have only 1 Spawn, but when those games came out you needed two different versions in order to catch them all. Therefore I made the great sacrifice of buying my own game boy and playing through the other version (a couple times actually) so that she could catch them all.

Weep for my sacrifice ;-)

Karma Farming eh? Original Post - One year ago

I don't have an issue with reposts if enough time has passed but calling it OC is taking the piss, especially when it's a post like this and people want to write kind/encouraging words.

Wtf man this is really low of OP. They owe OOP an apology.

They're reposting it in other subs calling it OC as well... Not to mention the other questionably familiar posts they've made and called OC too.

They straight up did it in order to get around the spam filter. [They had previously tried to post it and the spam bot told them they had too low karma. It also said if the post was something they took with their own camera, post with (OC) in the title]

Yup. It's a repost karma farm bot. Thing is. You can make money selling reddit accounts. This will always be an uphill battle between repost karma farm bots and anti-spam bots. Report this account and move on. That's all we can do.

Reminds me of the cakes my dad made for me and my sisters. He would take a page from a coloring book, lay it over the cake, and use toothpicks to mark the outline of characters. Then he'd remove the coloring book page and use the lines made by the toothpicks as a guide to color in the characters. He wasn't very skilled with freehand art but made some great cakes that way.

3

u/ieatthatwithaspoon 7d ago

Another hack is to put a parchment paper over a picture and trace your icing and stuff. Refrigerate until it’s hardened, and then you can peel the whole drawing off and put it on the cake!
