I effing love sugar. Give it to me in any form–soda, candy, cookies, cupcakes (mini cake), donuts (breakfast cake), muffins (breakfast cake #2), pie (fruit that wants to be cake). But CAKE, cake is a special kind of sugar. It’s a celebratory sugar, as if eating sweets wasn’t reason enough for rejoicing.
But then some incredible artists got the idea that cakes should look like other things. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still gonna eat it. And there’s something to be said for the incredible skill it takes to bake from scratch and create these visual masterpieces. But my eyes are gonna need a second to catch up to my stomach.
