The Shower Cake Catastrophe!

Today I did a shower cake for the daughter of some friends of ours. I have never had such a problem as I did with this one, but was relieved when it was finished, and the recipients loved it. I always do home made carrot cake for any occasion cake requested by their family, and I happily oblige. It's a winner, and tastes sooo good!
I love to tease Terry, the grandpa to be. When I got to the shower, he was talking to his son. Dressed in a nice shirt, jeans, and a belt with a huge buckle, the conversation went like this:
Jason (his son) Nice belt buckle Dad.
Me: Yes, I always admire a man who has the courage to wear a belt buckle bigger than his brain! (keep in mind hear, we banter back and forth like this)
Later while sitting on the couch with momma to be Stephanie, I see Terry coming across the room with a huge grin on his face. Walking right for me, I knew it wasn't good!
Terry: Beautiful cake Laurie, who did the wording?
Me: I did! Why?
Terry: Because it's always nice to welome a new baby.
Me: What are you talking about?
Terry: You left out the c. My brain may be smaller than my belt buckle, but at least it knows how to spell!
Terry, 1, me, 0!
