A Special Cake for Mother's Day

 On Sunday just gone it was Mother's Day here. 
 Here is what Karen made for me.   
Isn't it wonderful?
  I think my girl has real talent.  She puts so much time and effort into each of her cakes. 

The bears each represent a member of our wee family - mum, dad and the three girls. She also made apples, bananas and crisps and we are all having a picnic. 
Not only did it look absolutely lovely, it tasted wonderful too!!!

She made this cake while we were away at Edinburgh. 
 I got a text from her saying she had killed a chicken - and I couldn't understand what she was on about. 
 What had actually happened was when she cracked open an egg inside was a dead chicken.  
It really upset her (which I could totally understand).
 I have never had that happen to me - and I've bought a lot of eggs over the years. In fact I don't know of anybody else that has happened to either. 
Is this anything anybody else has had experience of?

Anyway to end on a happier note - I had a great Mother's Day and I have three lovely daughters. What more could a mum ask for :))

i believe my mother had that happen to her. i've had some of the 'fertilized' eggs before, and that totally geeks me out, too.

her cake is precious! so cute!

Strange about that egg... never heard of that happening before.... yuck. Belated Happy Mother's Day! :)
Karen said…
What a darling cake!!!

And yes, it happened to me last Sunday morning when I was cracking eggs for an omlete...all into one bowl. Needless to say, I had to throw the whole lot out, and I'm not too keen on eating eggs at the moment!

Happy Mother's Day!

The cake is adorabe - and Karen is very talented!

I 've heard of that happening to someone else - but now, I can't remember who it was. Thankfully, it's never happened to me. I think it would put me off eggs forever!

Karen is very talented. Your cake is adorable!

I've never had that happen but I have a girlfriend that had it happen...more than once in the same dozen. :(

That is one beautiful cake...and no, never had that happen with an unborn chick being in an egg and never knew of it happening to anyone either. But I think about what if it happened quite often...it would upset me, too, and I am 56 yrs. old.

Beautiful cake - Karen is talented!

(Happy Mother's Day!)

I remember this happening to my mom cracking an egg when I was younger. I was watching her cook, as I always did...needless to say, it was very disturbing for a little girl to see.
This is such a lovely cake! Karen is very talented. I am so glad you had a nice Mother's Day. We celebrate Mother's Day in May, here in the States.

What a beautiful cake! I didn't realize that your Mother's Day was on a different date than ours here in America. Glad you had a nice one!
OOH- I've never heard of anyone finding a chicken when they cracked an egg. That would probably turn me off eggs forever....
