What a crappy idea!

I work for a fantastic company, and our CEO is not only a great businessman, but he's also a really cool guy. And he's obsessed with poop jokes. So naturally, as his 35 year anniversary with the company (and the company's 35th birthday) approached, HR enlisted my help for a surprise that would knock his dirty little socks off... and here it is.

Poop cupcakes! Kind of gross, I know, but our fearless leader will gobble them up, even if no one else will touch them.

They actually smell really good- I used a variety of frostings to create diverse poopy, including triple fudge chunk, coconut pecan (which looks disgusting), peanut butter, and caramel. I could have sworn that my mom had used butterscotch frosting on a similarly themed cake a few years back, but I couldn't find it anywhere. Instead, I used white frosting mixed with these nifty little packets of caramel flavoring- I didn't even know they made such a thing! The cupcakes were topped off with plastic flies to add to the gross effect.

And if crapcakes weren't enough to let our CEO know how much we really love him, I created a giant card for all 117 employees to sign. HR asked me to use "poop" instead of other words so we didn't offend anyone- as if asking them to eat poop wasn't bad enough. To add grossness to the card, I splattered the front of it with shellac and glued on more plastic flies.

How clever is this? FYI... flatulence is a fancy word for farts, just in case you didn't know. :)
