The Cake is a Punch Line

Steph sent this story to Cake Wrecks. When her son wanted a cake to celebrate his half-birthday, she told him he could have half a cake. Then she talked to an unnamed person at an unnamed bakery.

"Think you could make me a half a cake?"

"Well, nooo, 'cause then we'd like, have to throw away the other half."

"Well, it'll be special order so you can just make one cake layer, right? And then cut it in half and stack it. Like a layer cake!"

"I don't know what you mean."

{{ repeats previous statements with hand motions }}

"Ok, like, I have no idea what you're wanting here."

"Look, just bake one round cake, cut it in half and stick the two sides together for a layer cake. Makes half a cake."

"I think that'll be really messy."

"Sure. Ok, just... Whatever. Do what you've gotta do."

The picture here is an example of how most bakeries sell half a cake, even though most don't cut a written message in half. This is not what Steph got. See the result of her request at Cake Wrecks. Link
