Whoever decided to embrace embarrassing, horrific, ugly Christmas sweaters was a genius. Those sweaters were a segway to another holiday idea – The Ugly Christmas Sweater Cake.
Ugly as hell.
We all probably have one in the back of our closets (probably for fun), if not your parents probably do.
Ugly Christmas Sweater Cakes have become a fun holiday trend inspiring ugly sweater contests, parades, parties, ugly sweaters for pets, and there’s even Ugly Christmas Sweater Day.
What the hell’s next.
My favorite? Ugly ass holiday cakes. They’re fun to make (I mean, I guess), and you can make it all yours. Put whatever you want on it. For my very first ugly holiday cake, I decide to go the tacky, shameless route. And by that I mean my decorating leaves a lot to be desired.
Like the whole damn thing.
The tackier, the better. It’s not an ugly holiday sweater unless it’s gaudy as all get out. Forget the boring grocery store holiday cake and make this for your holiday parties and it will definitely give your guests something to talk about.
I used candies and decorating icing to create the ugliness, and it was so much fun.
Make sure that you let the cake cool COMPLETELY before decorating. If not, you’ll end up getting nice and pissed off because the frosting on the spatula will pull the cake up. At that point, I want to drop kick the f’ing thing.
You definitely don’t want that shit. Let’s avoid that.
Please try to ignore the little spots that look like a 5 year old made it.
Actually, no I think a 5-year-old would do a much better job. Sorry, y’all, but you know I’m not a talented baker.
I do try sometimes.
This is an easy peasy cake to make.
A box mix, store bought frosting and holiday candy that you can find anywhere everywhere during this time of year. Thanks to the retail industry, you can start decorating as early as you want.
There’s absolutely no way to celebrate holidays timely because by the time the holiday gets here, we’re sick and tired of seeing trees, holiday candy, and oh my damn don’t get me started on Christmas music.
In Birmingham, we have a station that plays Christmas music the entire month of July. I just don’t get it. That makes me want to stab myself with a spoon.
I suppose it’s for the crazies that start decorating in September, don’t take the tree down until New Years, and never get tired of the music. I believe they start putting their warehouse of ornaments, trees, tinsel and baubles, figurines, enough lights to cover every inch of house, wreaths and mistletoe shit up in August.
