The day I stole my daughters Ed Balls fame

So on Ed Balls Day in 2013 my daughter made a cake.

I guess Ed Balls day was still fairly new, no one got excited. We ate the cake. The world moved on.

This year on 28th April I tweeted

Cake for breakfast! After all...it's Ed Balls day! Have a good one! #EdBalls #EdBallsDay pic.twitter.com/K325rdkKWO

and thought not much more about it, it still tickled me that we had made an Ed Balls cake but otherwise...well that was it.

And then, someone rounding up witty Ed Balls themed tweets shared it on a list. Then The Guardian mentioned the tweet. Then Mashable shared the tweet, and Buzzfeed shared the tweet, then The Metro picked up on it. Finally it appeared on the BBC News website.

My daughter was livid. I had foolishly (because I hadn't been thinking) failed to mention her or mention that it was 'her cake'. I was 'famous' for five minutes, my daughter was not.

She is proud of her cake, and furious at me. Here, have some cake.

  1. Haha it's a fab cake. I don't get the day why is there a day for him? I can see why your daughter is mad but in your defence you didn't intend on it getting that far!
