Took this to the Northern Virginia Ethical Society meeting today. I've been waiting for years to have an opportunity to make this cake for something. April Fool's Day seemed a perfect opportunity. Sign says: The Flying Spaghetti Monster was here. We have been touched by his noodly appendage. My husband then announced that the Flying Spaghetti Monster also performed a miracle by turning spaghetti into cake.

A couple people really thought I brought in spaghetti and meatballs!

Here's what's left of it. My son who is afraid to try new foods won't try this cake even though he loves cake. Why? Because it looked too much like the real thing!

It's a dark chocolate cake with strawberry sauce inbetween layers and on top and italian buttercream icing.

You did an amazing job. I had to look very carefully in the first pic to tell it wasn't spaghetti and meatballs. How did you make the meatballs?

Thanks! The meatballs are the only thing I didn't make. They are ferraro rocher Chocolates covered in a strawberry sauce.

Wow, I've never seen anything like that! It really looks like spaghetti! However, the picture of the layers make it clear that it's a yummy cake. Good job - it would have fooled me.

Ah thanks everyone. So much of my cooking and baking is utlitarian, so it's fun to do something fun once in awhile. What's even better is that my husband loves these fun cakes, so he never gets annoyed when it means I'll be spending several hours on a cake and making a big mess in the kitchen.

My 6 year old's birthday is in a couple of weeks. I'm already planning what I need to do for that! He is undecided between a Tom and Jerry cake and an Angry Birds cake. We might do both as we will have a family birthday and a birthday party.

I made an Angry Birds cake for a friend and my son loved it so much that I think he wants one for himself.

Made my husband take the leftovers to his work today as I helped myself to a couple slices yesterday and I definitely don't need that kind of temptation in the house.
