The Case of the Missing Apple Dapple Cake


I make this really good cake called Apple Dapple.

The last time I made it, I saved half and put it in the freezer.

Over the weekend, I took it out of the freezer.

I heated it up and gave my husband a piece of warm Apple Dapple Cake.

From there, my memory is a blank.

Him (the next day): Where's the Apple Dapple cake?

Me:

Him: Did you put it back in the freezer?

Me:

Him: I didn't see it in the refrigerator.

Me: *jumps out of chair and dashes to kitchen* I think I left it in the oven.

Me: *opens oven door* Hmmmm, not here.

I looked in cupboards and basement frig and microwave. I even looked in the garbage.

Him: What's that thing wrapped in foil in the frig?

Me: *takes a peek* ribs

Him: Then where is the cake?

Me: I have no idea. I think I'm losing my mind.

Next day, after much thinking, I decided to take another peek at that foil-wrapped thing in the frig.

Heh.

APPLE DAPPLE CAKE!

But it DOES look a little like ribs, doesn't it?

My first thought would have been The Dog Ate It...
Then again, my dogs were counter surfers.
