Pink Ribbon Overload: Congratulations–You’ve Got the Cancer! Now Make a Wish…

Inspired by Cake Wrecks is today’s post—the pink ribbon cake.  Because really, isn’t a big, honkin’, buttercream slathered, pink ribbon shaped cake always the best way to congratulate someone on their cancer diagnosis? 

This picture came from a site where you buy the ribbon shaped pan.  You know what that means, right? You can make ’em any color you want!  So, for all you melanoma folks who are feeling left out because you can’t find any black ribbon products, you can now make your own.  Oh sure, TC, I realize it’s not quite as cool as the pink ribbon sock purse, but it’s a start.  And hey, if you don’t think you can finish that whole thing yourself, you can always split it with the Amish—it’s their awareness ribbon color, too.  Though I’m not quite sure I understand what that means. 

Or, you could make your very own orange ribbon cake, which symbolizes awareness for leukemia, feral cats, and work zone safety.  Really.  Google it.  Of course, you might end up right back here like all those pork fritter googlin’ folks.  Too bad pork fritters don’t have their own ribbon.

    What color ribbon celebrates obesity?

    Really aren’t we suppose to be cutting back on the sweets to decrease weight because that produces estrogen and some of the breast cancers out there are fed by estrogen.. Really a cake because we want to celebrate the cancer diagnosis… I have learned alot during this time.. but celebrate.

    Buddy, I believe it would probably be the same color as the pork fritter ribbon. Or maybe the same color as my muffin top.

    Is that all I need to do? Cut back on sweets? Like, pork fritters are still cool, but lay off the cake, huh? Sweeet. Uh, er, maybe not.

    I usually hop around these blogs spreading vile sarcasm and low brow humor…but I have a mother in law and and several aunts who are breast cancer survivors…so my prayers are with you and your readers…

    now back to work:)

    If I have to cut back on the sweets, they’ll need to make me an awareness ribbon for that. A gone insane from lack of chocolate awareness ribbon. Would it be brown? Chemo was tough, but giving up chocolate would just do me in.

  6. The Moody Foodie Says:

    No lie, Tanya! And coffee, too.
