    Have you ever told a white lie?
    You are going to love this especially all of the ladies who bake for church events.


    Alice Grayson was to bake a cake for the Baptist Church
    Ladies' Group in Tuscaloosa, but forgot to do it until the last
    minute. She remembered it the morning of the bake sale and after
    rummaging through cabinets, found an angel food cake mix and
    quickly made it while drying her hair, dressing and helping her son
    pack up for Scout camp.

    When Alice took the cake from the oven, the center had dropped flat and the cake was horribly disfigured. She said, "Oh dear, now there is not enough time to bake another cake!"

    This cake was important to Alice because she did so want to fit in at her new church and in her new community of friends. So, being inventive, she looked around the house for something to build up the center of the cake.

    Alice found it in the bathroom--a roll of toilet paper. She plunked it in and then covered it with icing. Not only did the finished
    product look beautiful, it looked perfect.

    Before she left the house to drop the cake by the church and head for work, Alice woke her daughter and gave her some money and specific instructions to be at the bake sale the moment it opened at 9:30 and to buy the cake and bring it home.

    When the daughter arrived at the sale, she found the attractive,
    perfect cake had already been sold. Amanda grabbed her cell phone and called her mom. Alice was horrified--she was beside herself. Everyone would know! What would they think? She would be ostracized, talked about, ridiculed!

    All night, Alice lay awake in bed thinking about people pointing
    fingers at her and talking about her behind her back. The next day, she promised herself she would try not to think about the cake and would attend the fancy luncheon/bridal shower at the home of a fellow church member and try to have a good time. Alice did not really want to attend since the hostess was a snob who more than once had looked down her nose for the fact Alice was a single parent and not from the founding families of Tuscaloosa. But having already RSVP'd , Alice couldn't think of a believable excuse to stay home.

    The meal was elegant, the company was definitely upper crust old South and--to Alice 's horror--the cake in question was presented
    for dessert! Alice felt the blood drain from her body when she
    saw that cake! She started out of her chair to tell the hostess
    all about it, but before she could get to her feet, the Mayor's wife gushed, "What a beautiful cake!"

    Alice, still stunned, sat back in her chair when she heard the hostess (who was a prominent church member) say, "Thank you,
    I baked it myself.":eek:

    Alice smiled and thought to herself, "God is good."
