Cake Facts

Ben’s birthday facilitated a creative cake, of course (see below), as well as some thoughts. Here are some things I’ve learned about life from cake.
1) Too much of any one color ruins everything (protect minorities)
2) Red dye is always pink and never becomes red, no matter how much you put in (know what is impossible)
3) Too much red produces bitterness (too much of a good thing ends badly)
4) Plan your cake well, but not too well, especially if you live with impatient people (take all styles into account)
5) Brownies make excellent building material (they just do)
6) It is very difficult to frost a Twinkie, but well worth the effort (hold onto your dreams)
7) Once you cut it, it is more difficult to work with (make only judicious cuts)
8) You don’t ever have to frost a chocolate bar (some things are perfect from nature)
9) Some people are shapes people, some are color people (know thyself)
10) Too much cake will make you sick (moderation in all things)
