This is it, folks. The last post for Caker Cooking. I can't think of a better way to wrap things up than by featuring the best and worst caker recipes OF ALL TIME!
Which dishes shone brightly? (Or beigely. This is caker food we're talking about, after all.) And which dishes jiggled their way down the dark road of hell?

Last post? but where is a certain Regina nursing home going to get their menu ideas from! All seriousness aside thanks for the effort you've put into this, looking forward to seeing what's next for you.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Jim! And if that nursing home in Regina is ever looking for someone to do a cooking demo, well, you know where to find me.Delete
Brian, thanks for the memories. I laughed, I cried, I consumed tums & pepto bismol. Your blog has been a real treat! Best wishes on your next great adventure.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Madame M! I should've had this blog sponsored by Pepto Bismol, come to think of it. I could've been riding around in a new Chevette with all that money.Delete
Looking forward to your new posts made me a bit giddy on Monday mornings. It will be missed.ReplyDelete
All the best to you.
Thanks, Denese. And thanks for making me part of your Monday mornings.Delete
Thanks for all the tummy-aches and belly-laughs. Will you keep the blog up for a while?ReplyDelete
You are very welcome, Gumbee. And yes, the blog will stay up. I'll do a little tinkering with it in the new year and then it shall remain a piece of history for future caker generations.Delete
and I only found you yesterday.....ReplyDelete
Ironic, isn't it? Like that Alanis Morrisette song about the looking for a knife and all you find are spoons. I hate when that happens.Delete
Good luck to you Brian. I'll never look at a box of kitty litter quite the same again.ReplyDelete
Nor shall I, Goody. Or Tootsie Rolls, actually.Delete
Good night, sweet Caker Prince. Things won't be the same without you here on the internet. My thighs won't be the same, either. Good luck with your next adventure!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Tracey. When my thighs get a little too big for my Jordache jeans, I just give 'em a squirt of Pam. Works every time.Delete
I'll certainly miss seeing your... interesting... take on cooking! If you have any future online writing plans, please don't keep them from us!ReplyDelete
Thanks, S.S. Actually, I'm happy to announce my new blog: Quaker Cooking. It's going to have oats. Lots of oats.Delete
A sad day indeed - I was just getting my 'what would this mean in Australian' translations worked out... ;-)ReplyDelete
I'm sorry to do this at such a pivotal moment, Vicki. And here I thought "open can and dump contents" was part of a universal language.Delete
I'm going to miss you and this blog - Monday mornings were always a bit brighter knowing that I had a Caker Cooking post to look forward to. Good luck with your future ventures!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Kate. Happy to have made your Mondays a little brighter. In that Tang sunshiney kind of way.Delete
Sniiiffffff! Say it ain't so, Brian! (Damn, who is cutting onions?)ReplyDelete
In all seriousness, thank you for several years of gut-busting recipes and humor. I, too, look forward to your next adventure.
Thanks, Martine. Stay away from those onions! They're vegetables, after all.Delete
Awwwwww Brian - my mondays will never be the same again! Thanks for the laughs and the indigestion xxxReplyDelete
You're welcome. Hopefully, the laughs lasted longer than the indigestion, but considering this blog, probably not.Delete
Oh dear, what a shame, as i have only just accidentally happened upon your blog - while searching for, yes, tomato-based cake recipes - a week and a half too late! I'm laughing so hard the tears are streaming and i am so off my rocker. For a Minnesotan (we've a lotta crossover cuisine) now transplanted to North Queensferry, Scotland, your recipes and writings are a great antidote to the occasional bouts of homesickness. And a super reference for my local pals - i'll be showing everyone at next Monday's birthday cake club. I'm sorry you've stopped the blog, but hope you keep it up for a long time to come. I've some catching up to do.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Kari Ann! And happy to hear your search for tomato cake brought you here. I like the sounds of a birthday cake club. I'm guessing there's a lot of cake served at your meeting?Delete
I'll miss you.....thanks for the glorious beige tapestry that was this blog!ReplyDelete
You are very welcome. I'd like to think I featured every shade of beige that was humanly possible on this blog. And Mother always said I was going to be an underachiever...Delete
