Let them eat cake!

Someone left the remnants of one of those humonguous sheet cakes in the kitchen at work today.
It's from BJ's.

I stared at it thinking how rarely I eat cake, or pastry or even cookies. Very rarely in fact.
So, if I were to have some cake - it certainly would not be a sheet cake from BJ's.
I want something spectacular.
A sliver of triple, chocolate, lacey something or another served on an expenisive, oversized plate with fanciful drizzles of fruity, syrupy swirls. A cake so rich that I would be forced to set down my fork before the plate was emtpy. A cake so supple that it slid across my tongue and melted ever so....

oops... sorry - I got carried away there.

But my point is this. Cake is not something anyone should be eating often. It's a treat. It should be rare, and it should be special.
So make it so.

Bad cake should not be eaten ever, however good cake should have no limits.

Man...I fucking LOVE cake. Thanks for the Jones, Weese.

The cake you described... made me think of the chocolate spoon cake from Kitty Litter's restaurant!

See...that's just not right.

I think ALL sweets should be like that. Like buy cookies a few times a year. That way when I am wandering through the kitchen, I will just grab a carrot stick instead of that oreo....

There's nothing that irritates me more than office treats. My office will bring in bad cake for no reason at all and then gush all day about how good it was.

I am now going to work on internalizing the weese cake principle.

Yeah, you gotta make it worth the long-term costs. For me that generally means a really buttery, soft, homemade (or homemade-style) chocolate chip cookie, preferably with gigantic chunks of ultra-dark chocolate. Happily, you have 21 shopping days left till my birthday.

the only daughter has to stop with those lips. Totally ruins me at work. H-O-T

What the fuck is up with petite, dainty slices? If you don't eat cake a lot and you want some cake who the hell wants a petite, dainty slice.

clammy said...

Wha? huh? where's the cake? I missed it? damn.

weese said...

yeah really... the lips with "you had me..."
