I was recently invited to a hens party and I wanted to take an unforgettable gift. We were going out for dinner so I thought, 'I could make a cake.' In alignment with the theme of 'fun' I could make a cake shaped like a penis. I was sure there were pecker cake tins around, I looked on line and sure enough I could get them in at 'Adam and Eve' in Canberra. I generally drive to Canberra twice a week for appointments with the children. Every so often when I have appointments overlap so John comes along. It was my lucky day, as a family we were heading into Canberra. I phoned the sex shop and asked if they had any in store, $35 was the price. I thought, seeing as I will probably only use the tin once, (even if it was similarly shaped to a sword for a children's cake) it wasn't worth the investment and let's face it, I didn't want to go into the sex shop alone and couldn't take the children in with me and even if it would make the newspaper 'Children Trapped inside car outside sex shop,' I wasn't going to leave them.
So I asked John and somehow persuaded him to make me a cake. Oh my gosh did we laugh in the process. The jokes were harmless but sooo funny. What flavour do we make the cake? what size? Is it the right colour? Do we need whipped cream? I'm sure you get the drift!
The end result - scrumptious!
Whilst this may not seem yogic, laughter is the best medicine. It lowers blood pressure, reduces stress hormones, and increases muscle flexion. It increases the circulation of antibodies in the blood stream and makes us more resistant to infection. I don't imagine anyone will be making this cake just for a laugh but I hope you can get a little chuckle at it.
