Bake a cake for the rapture

Sigh. There’s a nut-job guy predicting the rapture will come this Saturday.

His name is Harold Camping and he runs Family Radio, which took in $80 million in contributions between 2005 and 2009. And they are still passing the collection plate this weekend. Question: any chance of a refund?

Oblivious to the irony, the Star-Tribune ran a long article today on how to make an angel food cake. That’s hanging out the “welcome” sign. Without abandoning Mike Huckabee’s diet.

Which brings me to my first (and only) revelation about angels and cakes. The trick to light and fluffy is to cool the cake right out of the oven in the upside down position. That's the cake, not the cook. The directions are unclear on whether it must also be eaten that way. Standing on your head is always an option. If you are a registered Republican.

So, heat up the oven, hon. We’ll be first on our block to welcome the avenging angels of judgment day.

If we are still here, next week we’ll teach ambrosia.
