Little Sally Bakes a Cake

Paullet Goodard in 'Happy Days' - Version 2

Little Sally said to Mother the other day, “Mother, I want to make a birthday cake.”
Mother said, “Sally, you don’t know how to bake yet.”
“I know,” Little Sally said, “I meant I want you to bake a cake, because I want to put the frosting on it, and I know how to do that.”
“Are you sure, Sally, I don’t think you’ve ever iced a cake before.”
“Well how hard can that be? I watched that nice lady at the bakery do it, I want to make one for her.”
“Do you know how to spell her name?”

Today I am a Wednesday Fictioneer and will deviate from the posted prompt, because today is a special day. I want everyone to look at the photo above, because that is exactly how Rochelle would eat her birthday cake, I’m sure of it. (I don’t have a photo of Rochelle, so I borrowed Paulette Goddard eating cake in the Charlie Chaplin movie Modern Times, 1936)

  3. Dear Ted,

    Tell little Sally thank you so much for the birthday cake. Wiping icing off my cheek and chin now. ๐Ÿ˜‰



    1. Enjoy your day, Rochelle!

  4. That’s a sweet deviation from the prompt.

    Who’s in that picture? I feel like it’s from an old movie, and I should know it.

    1. Paulette Goddard… I was going to mention that and forgot. Thank you for reminding me.

      1. Modern Times & The Great Dictator. I love Charlie Chaplin. That could be why she looks familiar.

  5. Great story! Pass some of that icing this way, why don’t ya!

  6. Little Sallyโ€ฆ Good Story!

  11. I love the guilty look of the girl in the picture. Only one piece of cake, a really big one.

  12. What a thoughtful idea ๐Ÿ™‚ Many happy returns, Rochelle!

  13. A lovely story, Ted, and that cake looks so yummy … four layers. She’s eating it the way I’d like to. Nice job!

  14. Inventive. I like the story has one foot in fiction and one foot in the now.

  15. That cake looks good. I’d love to join that party, Ted. ๐Ÿ™‚ — Suzannehtt
