Because Some Things Just Require Cake

Cakes later on...

My eye spotted the card and I grabbed for my pen and small moleskin notebook, my ‘must haves’ for writing:

A great many things can be solved with kindness – even more with laughter – but some things just require cake

Yes! That’s it.

Cake – with its pretty facade and sugary center; cake with its sweetness and joy; cake and all that it is.

Some things just require cake.

In a world that vacillates between the extremes of far too practical and outrageously extravagant, cake is that happy middle ground. No one ever needs cake. But it sure can put a different spin on the day.

Cake whispers ‘special’; cake says ‘stop’; cake shouts ‘sit down for awhile’.

I don’t know what your life holds, but perhaps you’ve tried kindness and laughter. Maybe today is about cake….You decide!

Blogger’s Note: Or maybe you’re an ice cream person….just try melted nutella on vanilla ice cream. Some things just require nutella on ice cream.

  1. My friend Susanne makes the best Almond flavoured cake. It’s a white cake but it’s drenched in some sort of almond liqueur and the frosting is this lovely almond flavour…..oh my…. Yes! It’s true! Some times one needs a little cake!
