We’ve certainly come a long way since the phrase “Let them eat cake” was uttered, supposedly by Marie Antoinette, but that’s another story.

Dare I say it?  We love cake!  Every shape, design color, flavour!  Whether it’s a personalized wedding cake, birthday celebration, Passover, Christmas, we celebrate with cake.  Worldwide, we announce events with great aplomb; whether someone jumps out of the middle of it or it’s set center stage, the unveiling eagerly awaited, we love cake.

What was once upon a time a simple pastry now offers a complex variety around the world

Personally, I am astounded at the creativity, intricacy, size, even shape that some cake designers offer. For awhile I watched a cake-maker and designer, from Hoboken.  The show was called  “The Cake Boss”.  Personally I’d call him an artist! For the sheer intricacy scale and perfection he created was both astounding and mouthwatering.

I used to go great lengths when a school event required a cake sale to raise money, and I created some pretty awesome designs from ladybugs to guitars to whatever the event’s theme was.  What an absolute delight!

I honestly enjoyed the creation more than eating it, unless of course, being the self professed cream cheese=aholic that I am,  it’s a cream cheese cake, well it didn’t stand a chance!

Once upon a time a cake was created

Soft and moist its flavour long awaited

Oh you Devil you

No Angel Food!

But I am a Princess pure and divine

Upside down cake, you are mine!

Black  Forest  scrumptious and sweet

Red Velvet that’s what I shall create

Whatever flavour shall I make

Perhaps several I should bake!

Christmas, Birthday, Wedding Cake so fine

Whatever the occasion cake is sublime!
