I've been deceived.
This pretty cake, this swirly tempest of chocolate gradient roses, capped with dark shavings, yellow in the middle with stripes of chocolate in-between, fooled me with its wavy smiles. No ecstatic bite, no longing savor left on our tongues, nothing but a wasted sugar rush to the head, so not worthy of the calories packed inside. Instead of fluffy, light and moist, I found sickly sweet and dense, a tragedy burdened with flavorlessness.


It's okay, I've had enough heavenly cakes to accept the ones that don't reach that high.

Yet. I still feel cheated. I don't believe in beginning my 42nd trip around the sun with a soul-less cake, do you?

I claim the right to have a do-over!!!

And yes, I just spent a whole post discussing cake. With a title like "Deception", were you hoping for something creamier? Something with more substance???

Yeah, me too...

(to be continued... :)



  1. You absolutely must have a GREAT cake for your birthday. Get out there and find one ... no matter that it is a little late. I believe in a month long celebration! Do it ... !!!


  2. I agree with you 100% - a do-over is in order!!!!! A random post about cake is always ok in my book. Good Luck in your quest for a cake full of soul.
