I will not help you dispel this saying which has been well used by exasperated mothers for generations. As a mother of two rambunctious boys close in age, I used it often myself...........and from that perspective.... who cares if the cake won't fall?
Well, I sit here humbled by my own sarcasm.
But since posting to this thread I have had a the benefit of a little research.
My cake was in the oven, about halfway done. My husband, who has advanced PD and uses a walker was slowly creeping threw the kitchen when he fell backwards right in front of the oven. These are very heavy resounding falls, as with the PD, a person has no ability to grab at anything to break the fall, they just go backwards.
After I got him back on his feet and opened the oven there was a huge crater in my cake. It was done in the center, but just collapased.
