Wanted.

Wanted: a full time frosting finisher, to prevent me from doing things like this.

Duties include:

  • being sneaky. you must smuggle frosting away from my watchful eye.
  • eating a lot. you must finish bowls upon bowls of frosting so I don’t bathe in it.
  • being strong. you will need to wrestle the last bit of frosting from my white-knuckled claws.
  • fighting me. for times when I won’t give the frosting up.
  • being clever. the “throw-the-frosting-in-the-freezer” trick does not work with me.
  • swift shopping. you may need to get me new elastic-waistband pants stat. lickety split, I say.
  • listening to me whine. because I do that a lot.

Please apply within.

    Regarding the “throw-the-frosting-in-the-freezer” trick: Did you know you can cover frozen frosting in chocolate?

    I hold Ben personally responsible for every cookie I eat. I mean, shouldn’t he have eaten them first or at least hid them from me?

      Excellent idea. I’m going to start doing that with my husband.

    I need a baked-goods-finisher I think… sending them to work with Dan helps, but that usually isn’t until the next day…

    I would LOVE this job.

    But I dont know if I’m qualified. I can definitely eat the frosting, but if you start crying, I’d let you have some. But at least we could share it together!

    Hi Mrs. How Sweet!

    I recently discovered your blog and love it! Thank you!

    I was cruising around the site and found your 25 days of workouts you did last December and I wondered if you planned on doing something similar again this year? If not, I’ll just print the old ones and tote them to the gym!

    Thanks again for fun and delicious additions to anyone’s day!

    Done! Although I don’t know how well I could fight right now. Does it count if I stick my belly up against ya and let baby B do it for me? He can kick total ass. Believe me, I know. ;)

    Can I apply? No college degree yet, but I’m REALLY motivated…

    I give all my baked goods to the BF after a few days. And frosting…well I’ve learned not to make it much, or I’m hunched over the toilet wanting to puke from all the butter.

    I’ll take that job! Sounds right up my alley!

    Reminds me of a comic strip I collected while working in HR. It says “They say you should always do what you love” in the first square. In the last square it says “I wonder if Hershey’s is looking for a chocolate tester?”

    I’ll help you. I can be your taste tester, too… Also, I’ll cook your bacon for you and then make you dinner. How does bacon crumble sound? Topped with frosting? And sprinkles?

    I’d be more than willing to accept the challenge…as long as you come to my house and put the cream cheese under padlock and then bury the key in the beach sand down the street…i swear i could eat that stuff with a spoon (and often do)
