My father showed me the movie Jaws at a very young age. It did not go well. I ended up having to sleep in my parents bedroom for months, and was constantly waking up from nightmares of sharks circling under the bed.

I was even afraid to go to the bathroom because I thought a shark was going to swim up through the pipes and bite me in the butt. It was a problem. A problem I chose to solve by never watching a scary movie again.

Basically, what I am trying to say is, this cake is based on a scary movie I have never seen. But after my experience with Jaws, it's never going to happen. To this day, I still have nightmares about sharks biting off my toes in the middle of the night.

So I skipped the traditional stuff and made my own version of Frankenstein. Meet Frank, The Friendly Monster (kind of like Casper is The Friendly Ghost). I like him a lot. And he looks much nicer than the Frankenstein on the cover of that movie.

I might be the only person in the history of the world that has ever been grounded from baking. That's right. When I was a teen, it wasn't the computer, or the phone or the tv that got taken away. For me, it was the unsalted butter.
