I still can't believe it, but somehow I forgot to post a new dessert yesterday, and therefor lost my bet. I could start whining about all the bad circumstances and how I did several posts on some days, but no. For a brief moment I was also considering to manipulate the date on a new post, but not only that you guys would be way to clever for this kind of cheat, I also felt it would be wrong to do so ; ).

What does this mean? Well it means that at some point during the course of next week, I'll have to get myself a cheap cake and take a picture of me putting my head into it. How embarrassing, but if you guys spread the word about it, it will at least serve as a nice promotion for my blog. I can already see the digg news: "What happens if you don't update your Blog regulary" ... ; ). I guess I should make less harmful promises in future ..., but at least it motivated me enough to write 14 more or less valuable tips about CakePHP.

Nice try though ^^
the 14 desserts were very tastefull. You may have lost your bet but you can still post desserts if you want ;)

Dieter@be: Ha ha, nice try ; ). I'll continue to post useful stuff, but I think I'm done with desserts for a while ^^.

I loved all the tips that you have posted so far, but what I would love more would be your photo taken with your face smeared with cake ;)

How could this happen to me ... : (. Oh well, I'll do it, so you guys get your funny picture ^^.

Come on Felix... we all know you planned this from the beginning. :)

Felix Geisendörfer said on Sep 23, 2006:

Hypercubed: Well sort of. I was planning on making a donation marathon for me to do it, and 75% of it would go to the Cake foundation. Well but I certainly didn't want to do it like that : ).

All that I can say is that all those dessert where so good, btw thanks about those very handy tips, but we were all looking forward to see your lovely face covered with cake!!!!
C'mon, guys and gals, it's true, every one was silently wishing for it ;)

Hope you get a chocolate, filled with chocolate with chocolate on top to do it, cuz them kinda cakes are EASY to eat afterwards ;)

Heil the cake smeared baker, AVÉ !!!

Well, I kept the post up to date with them all too:

Maybe I should include the pic as well >:)

enygime: feel free to post the picture if you want to ^^, I just hope the cake will cover most of my face so I can reject the entire thing later on in my life ; ).

[...] PS: I got my car back this weekend, so the long promised cake party should be happening this week for sure! Which reminds me, Thursday is my birthday, so maybe I don't even have to buy the cake myself ; ). [...]

[...] PS: If you think I should stop ranting, put my head in a cake and write about PHP instead, that’s fine too. It will happen ; ). [...]

[...] After already doing 14 posts (checkout the list on in 8 days, I missed to do a post on day 9. It was Friday, I was tired and the next thing I remembered was waking up on my couch, knowing that I had missed to post a tip. So I admited, that I had lost my bet, and now it was time to take the beating. [...]
