the ding dong factor.

A fathers day cake... that was the plan. I had an idea in my mind that I wanted, but it quickly went out the window when I realized that the premade frosting I had purchased did not come out of the tube as nicely as I would have liked!
On to plan B.
Plan B included chocolate chips to cover up the damage, and a nice smoothing out with my spatula.
But, I was still plagued with the wrath of plan A. The tube of white frosting was not working with me! I tried warming it in my hands, I tried squishing it around a bit, but nothing could save the consistency of the white frosting--
On to plan C.
I then realized that if I made a swirly swoop design on the top of my chocolate cake, it looked like a giant hostess ding dong.
So, that's what I did.
I give you, the ding dong cake...
.
Happy Fathers Day honey, here is a giant ding dong.
