I’m not going to lie, I would eat cake all day long if I could. If I knew it wouldn’t make me gain a ton of weight. If it was socially acceptable. I have eaten cake for breakfast once in my life, and I think that was one of my top ten mornings. Actually, I know it was one of my top ten mornings, because breakfast is one of my favorite meals, and that breakfast was cake!
I love eating my leftover birthday cake. There is just something about it that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Knowing that this cake was made just for you. That people you wanted to spend your special day with sang to you, and shared in this cake with you… And didn’t eat it all so that you could have left overs!! Those are the best cakes… And people!
Cake is my comfort food. I know this, because every time I get stressed out, anxious, or am going through a rough time, I want cake. Not just any cake though. You see, I’m very picky about my cake. It needs to be quality, from quality ingredients, and made with care. A little high on my cake expectations, I know, but if I’m going to sacrifice the size of my bum for cake, then I want it to be worth it.
My go to cake is a yellow cake, raspberry and buttercream filling, and buttercream icing. Of course I also love me a good almond pound cake, raspberry and buttercream filling, and buttercream icing. Carrot cake is bueno too! There is thus bakery near where I live, and they make a purple velvet cake. It is amazing. It’s a red velvet cake without the red and coco powder. If you have never had one, I’m sorry to say, but you are missing out.
Pintrest is the worse place for a cake lover. All of the delicious and amazing cake pictures… They make you want to take up baking just to test Rast your own creations. I have a board solely for pining cakes. I also have a boars for pining wedding cakes. You know, in the event I meet Mr. Right sometime soon.
There have been many occasions where I have purchased a cake just because. It’s Tuesday? Let’s get a cake to celebrate! It’s national yellow finger bail day? Let’s get a cake to celebrate! It’s actually kind of sad how much I love cake although, I know I’m not alone in this love affair.
It’s also a good thing that I’m quite a baker. I make my second favorite cake perfectly (pictured above). It’s a pure white vanilla cake, with a double vanilla buttercream filling, and a regular vanilla buttercream frosting. I like to decorate it with fresh flowers for picture purposes. Peonies work perfectly for this.
My favorite movie involving cake would, hands down, be Sixteen Candles. Specifically the scene when Molly Ringwald’s character is sitting on the table with Jake (swoon worthy) Ryan, and they are casually chatting about her life.
Giving other people a stellar cake experience on their special day, is one of my favorite things to do. There is nothing more meaningful, than knowing that you, are the reason this special friend is enjoying a perfect piece of cake with loved ones on this day. I even buy my little pupper a cake on his birthday, and his gotcha day. He appreciates this very much!
My own birthday is coming up soon, and I have yet to decide what kind of cake I want. Do I want my #1 favorite or do I want to try something different? I don’t really do chocolate cake. And I’m not a fan of the fancy concoctions. Thankfully I still have a week or so to figure it out… Unless my own personal Jake Ryan does it for me!
There is nothing worse than someone substituting cupcakes for cake. Yeah, they may be made from the same ingredients, but they are not the same. Cupcakes, don’t get me wrong, are good, but when you want cake, you want cake. Not a mini version of a cake.
At this point, I’m sure your wondering why I’m writing an entire blog post about my love for cake. You see, I was discussing said love with a friend, and also mentioned that I needed to get a new post up on the blog. So, being a total loon, my friend dared me to write a blog about cake. They didn’t think I would do it. Well, here’s to you my friend… Challenge accepted; A blog about cake, and why I love it so much!
In the immortal words of Marie Antoinette, “Let them eat cake!” (Yes, I know that’s not litteraly what she meant)
Until next time…
