Secret Subject Swap: Cupid

Welcome to another Secret Subject Swap. This week 15 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

Secret Subject Swap - Baking In A Tornado


My subject is Cupid has hit your favorite celeb with an arrow. Who is it and why? It was submitted by The Momisodes. Here goes:

There are actually a lot of people who I think need . . . something . . . in their lives. And although many of these people are already married, it seems pretty evident that they either need more love or just to be hit in the a$$ with an arrow . . . I really don’t know which.

For instance, I’d love to see an arrow hit:

The “Real Housewives” of Everywhere and Anywhere: perhaps you’d spend less time on TV trying to impress yourselves with your wealth and popularity if you had more love in your life.

Duck Dynasty Dickhead: I hope Cupid hits you with a dart. And I hope it makes you understand that love is a good thing, judgement is not.

North’s (poor thing) Baby Daddy: You say you’re in love but feigning sex on a motorcycle with your Baby Mama in a video shared publicly is not  love.

Teen mom who had plastic surgery and made a sex movie in order to support her daughter: seriously, I don’t even know where to start. But I hope you fall in love and gain some self-respect in the process.

Food show and cookbook star who used a racial slur and claimed not to mean it: I don’t know what your intent was, but some things should just never be said. Hope Cupid helps you to kiss (or eat) more and speak less.

Speidi who said in a magazine interview “we made and spent at least 10 million dollars. The thing is, we heard that the planet was going to end in 2012. We thought, “we have got to spend this money before the asteroid hits”:  Cupid’s gonna need an extra thick arrow for you. He may need to dip it in anti-stupid serum.

Tila, who posted on her FB page: “I never said I hated anyone, but just because I feel sympathy, compassion and forgiveness for others such as Hitler means I am now a monster? All for trying to open your eyes to the truth that Hitler was NOT as bad as he was painted out to be?” Not sure if Cupid can do anything about a brain implant, but it’s worth a try.

Alec {{shakes head}}, Alec {{shakes head}}, Alec {{shakes head and rolls eyes}}.

Nancy NotSoGraceful: do you ever watch your own show? You say you want to present facts and make a difference? Anyone who disagrees with you, you publicly ridicule them and cut their microphone. I don’t know who you think you are but get over yourself.

Rob CanadianMayor: I honestly didn’t know whether to include you or not. Truthfully, if you change your ways I’ll have so much less to laugh at.

Drew and Jonathan FixEmAndSellEm: you can only get hit with a love arrow when I’m around. You can improve my home any day {{wink, wink}}.

Who I’m giving a pass to:
Justin and Miley: honestly, you’re both young and trying to find yourselves and I get it. Do that, in whatever (legal) ways you need to, before settling down.

Ingredients:
1 box yellow cake mix
1 box coconut cream instant pudding mix
4 eggs
½ cup water
½ cup oil
1 tsp pineapple extract
1 (8oz) can pineapple drained, chopped
2 sticks butter, softened
1 tsp pineapple extract
2 – 4 TBSP heavy cream
3 cups powdered sugar
1 cup butterscotch baking chips
2 TBSP heavy cream
½ cup toasted coconut
 
Directions:
*Grease and flour a Bunt pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
* Beat cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, water, oil and pineapple extract for 2 minutes. Mix in the pineapple.
*Pour into bunt pan, spread to even out the dough. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until center of the top springs back to the touch.
*Cool for 10 minutes, remove from pan and cool completely.
*Beat the butter and the extract for a few seconds. Add in the powdered sugar. Beat very gently on low speed until it starts to come together.
*Add 2 TBSP heavy cream. Beat. Add heavy cream one TBSP at a time, beating after each addition until the frosting is of spreading consistency.
*Spread frosting on cooled cake. I didn’t spread it all the way to the bottom on mine.
*Put butterscotch baking chips into microwave safe bowl and microwave for one minute. Stir. Add the cream. Stir again.
*Microwave at 10 second intervals and stir until all of the baking chips melt.
*Transfer to a plastic bag, cut the tip and pipe the butterscotch over the cake.

  4. Cheers to you for being so caught up on Pop Culture. I agree with everything, although Justin has been pushing it a bit lately. My husband woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. Now, I'm sitting for a few hours on the plane with him. Could you send an arrow our way? xox

    1. Arrow on it's way. Can you tell the plane to hold still for a minute so the arrow can find it's mark?

    1. Funny you say that because I developed this recipe because I was looking for something a little different to do with butterscotch.

  7. OMG...I LOVE it Karen...each cupid's hit was right. I also agree with you on the giving a pass to Justin and Miley they are young and living in a world where there every move is on social media. If all teens were in the public eye, we would be going crazy too.

    1. I know, if my life at that age had played out publicly I'd be mortified. Kids need to be kids, make their mistakes and grow up.

    1. Not trying to kill you, I promise. Would sure love to see a video of you making this cake, though!

  9. LOVE this cake and so glad I'm far away or it would blow my diet.
    Now this cupid arrow, that was a different twist and I agree with most all of them. I was still waiting to see "WHO" you would want to hook up with cupid and yourself ;) wink wink

  10. I don't know any of those people except Mr Bieber, but I think I got the picture, and you nailed it: those who behave the worst, desperately need some loving.Let's go then, Cupid!

    1. I'm laughing because I hadn't realized that you wouldn't have heard of many of these people. But you did get the point of the post so good for you.

  11. If Cupid does go into the business of brain transplants I'm sure there will be a lot more people he'll need to start shooting with a bow and arrow. Your list is pretty spot on though.

    1. Yeah, the list would be never-ending, I'm afraid. But this is a good start.

  12. The cake looks amazing and the arrows are SPOT ON!! I sure hope Cupid listens!

    1. Maybe Cupid will do my bidding if I offer him a slice of cake?

  13. In my best Marsha Brady voice: "Drew and Jonathan are dreeeeaaammmy"! You went a little easier than I would have on Miley and Justin but otherwise love all your cupid improvements!

    1. Yeah, wanted to put at least one positive one in there, Drew and Jonathan sure fit the bill!

  14. I'm just feeling so hungry after looking at that cake. I wonder if cupid can shoot a few big slices over to me as it's on the way to hit all the others you mentioned above. Isn't the Canadian Mayor something? It's like watching a movie.

    Have an enjoyable weekend Karen, it's just started to chuck down loads of rain at my end.

    1. That Canadian Mayor, although amusing, really makes me sad. We're watching a man publicly hit rock bottom.

  16. I love the direction you went with this! Brilliant. You know what I would have written. I mean, duh. But this, this was not expected and sooo funny and smart. Loved it!

    1. HA, now how would I know what you would have written? LOL!

  17. I agree with you about those reality tv shows with the stars and wanna be celebs. They all need love haha. To be honest, I wouldn't even want to give their show any ratings to give them that attention. They definitely need to go handle their issues with not getting love growing up or just needing to find a good mate or whatever it is! LOL. The other shows I've never seen either but they don't surprise me like Teen Mom. Yummy pineapple cake! I've never had it before!

    1. I bet you could make a list of your own. We all know people who need a little more love. . . or something!

  18. Like the fact that you realize that kids are kids and really rich kids can just be stupid. No arrows for the housewives because then what would I watch that makes me feel better about myself. Lol

    1. ooops, I'll take those housewives off of the list, wouldn't want to deprive you.
