Cake...in a cup.

Postby The Artful Dodger » Sat Nov 04, 2006 2:02 am

So, today was an interesting day at work, not so much for the idea that it was someone's birthday today, but, well the title gives it away, doesn't it?

Since a few weeks back, we couldn't use the plates in the kitchen because we have our share of lazy bums who just pile the sink high with plates and silverware. So, they're off limits for a while until the folks who use them frequently get their act together. This is a Web 2.0 startup of somewhere around the ballpark of 30-40 employees by the way.

At any rate, we had gone through the ritual of singing Happy Birthday for one of the managers (which I elected to sit out because I can't stand singing Happy Birthday to anyone even in a group). The guy was special as he had gotten two big, delectable kinds of cake for his party: an Angels' food cake with gobs of frosting and berries on top...and a double chocolate cake with three different kinds of chocolate mousse and decorate with tons of chocolate decoration pieces on the top and side.

Now, we ran out of paper plates and we only cut out a couple of small pieces (and these were expensive, huge cakes mind you). Geez, there were only five paper plates in the kitchen left over from Halloween. However, we have tons of plastic cups. You know, for the water cooler, soda, and milk in the fridge. So, as a result, we crammed the cuts of cake in cups and ate them as if they were parfaits and they happened to be wicked awesome. In short, they eat like a parfait. It's a pretty nutritious cake, with the cake being very dense, very rich in flavor, and creamy because of the gobs of mousse on top and in between.

This got me thinking: why not start up a business that sold cakes in a cup? In L.A., the trend is cupcake shops. So, cupcakes sell like hot cakes, but they're not cakes in a cup, in the truest sense. You could have your cake and eat it too, while cramming 5 different kinds of cakes all in the same cup and getting a plethora of flavors. Shoot, you can top it all off with ice cream and/or syrups. I know what I'm doing if Revver gets bought out by Google for $2 billion and that is, Cake...in a Cup. :-D

BP, I don't know what to say here, but that is one of the funniest things I have read here in quite some time. I think I might just go to bed on that note. :-b ;-D

When you combine dirt and cake, you get something truly special. A woman brought some into work in a big clear plastic flower pot. Oddly enough, she called it Dirt Cake.

I'm not sure exactly how it's made, but from what I overheard, it involves a truckload of Oreos, whipped cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla pudding.

A very worthwhile snack.

I've heard of this.

From what I understand, it's called "dirt."

Perhaps if it were placed in a cup, an appropriate name would be "Cup-O-Dirt."

Better yet, make the cups out of waffle that way you can have your cake and eat the cup too.

I have ate plenty of dirt cake before. I absolutely love it.
