The Church Cake


Alice was to bake a cake for the church ladies' group bake sale, but she forgot to do it until the last minute.  She baked an angel food cake, however, when she took it from the oven she discovered the center had dropped flat.

She said, "Oh dear, there's no time to bake another cake." So, she looked around the house for something to build up the center of the cake.

Alice found it in the bathroom... a roll of toilet paper. She plunked it in the center of the cake and covered it with icing and decorations. The finished product looked beautiful, so she rushed it to the church.

Before she left the house, Alice gave her daughter some money and specific instructions to be at the bake sale the minute it opened, and to buy that cake and bring it home. Unfortunately, when the daughter arrived at the sale, the attractive looking cake had already been sold.

Alice was beside herself.

The next day, Alice was invited to a friend's home where two tables of bridge were to be played that afternoon.

After the game, a fancy lunch was served, and to top it off, the cake in question was presented for dessert.

When Alice saw the cake, she started to get out of her chair to rush and tell the hostess all about it. However, before she could get to her feet, one of the other ladies said, "What a beautiful cake!"

Alice could only sit back in her chair and watch, when she heard the hostess (who was a prominent church member) say:

"Thank you, I baked it myself."
