Have you ever told a little white lie?  Well this one is the frosting on the cake!


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 the morning
of the bake sale and after rummaging through cabinets, found
an angel food cake mix & quickly made it while drying
her hair, dressing, & helping her son pack for Scout

When  Alice took the
cake from the oven, the center had dropped flat and the cake
was horribly disfigured. She thought, 'Oh dear, there is not
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

Alice found it
in the bathroom - a roll of toilet paper. She plunked it in
and 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 Amanda 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. 

Amanda arrived at the sale, she found the attractive,
perfect cake had already been sold. She 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, and ridiculed! All night,  Alice lay awake
in bed thinking about people pointing fingers at her and
talking about her behind her back. 

next day,  Alice 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
want to attend because the hostess was a snob who more than
once had looked down her nose at Alice because
she was a single parent and not from the founding families
of Tuscaloosa but,
having already RSVP'd, she ! couldn't think of a believable
excuse to stay home.

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 the

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 said, 'What a beautiful
