I've heard that people are either "pie" people or "cake" people. I think it's sort of like people are either dog people or cat people. And maybe people like both, but there's one that really clicks with them and the other they tolerate or even enjoy...just to a lesser extent.
I'm a cake person. Pie is fine. I like pie. But I prefer cake. To continue with the cat person/dog person analogy. If cake people are like cat people, I'd be relatively happy to be living in a house full of cakes when I'm old and infirm.
That said, I only want one piece of cake. I don't have much of a sweet tooth, so although I like cake...I'm done after one piece. I don't want one tomorrow, or the next day or the next day...maybe the day after that.
So last week when my mom asked if I wanted any special dessert for my birthday, I said cookies. Because I'll eat a cookie a day every day for the rest of my life.
Anyway...back to cake:
There's only one way to describe well made cake..."moist". I hate that word. What is another word that we could use to describe the correct-bakedness of cake?
The cake was ..."humid"
The cake was ..."muggy"
The cake was ..."clammy"
The cake was ..."dank"
The cake was ...""...I don't know. There's just no good word for a moist cake that doesn't use the word moist.
Sooooooo....moving forward...moltulous. The cake was spongy and moltulous. Bang! Done!
I took this picture of me "surprised" at seeing my birthday cookie complete with candle. It's a shitty selfie, in no small part because you can't actually SEE the birthday cookie and also it's out of focus. And there's some weird thing going on near my eye that doesn't happen in nature. I should have given myself more arm and focused...but I was just so surprised!! Also, I swear the flame on the candle was normal sized, not inferno-class.
|oh my god! for me?? You shouldn't have!|
