So much cake! And cake is always good! Plus the one about the forgotten cake is too close to fact to be funny except in retrospect!
I love cake. I guess you can tell! Even burnt cake, I’ll try to salvage it!
I have no sense of taste right now (sinus infection) but I am still craving cake now having read this series. I smiled at the idea of arguing about cake with a stranger at a bus stop.
Oh, best wishes for healing! And I’d argue anywhere anyone that chocolate cake is the best cake anytime!
