The Not-Cake Discovery

I recently admitted to myself that I don't like cake. Not that I won't/don't eat it, mind you - I've been eating it for years. But I wouldn't/don't choose it. (A cupboard full of expired cake mixes proved the point quite succinctly.)

Cupcakes too. I love the looks of now-trendy cupcakes in all their mini-deliciousness. But that deliciousness is just not for me. 'Cause, you know, I don't like cake (and cupcakes are mini cakes).

  1. I would pick a pie any day over a cake. What would you pick? I think with any desert there is such a difference between the quality products and the junk. That is certainly true with both pie and cake.
    I don't know if it is true for ice cream. I like the junk and I really like the good stuff. Too bad I haven't been having any of these yummies lately. Darn diabetes!

  2. I hear you on the ice cream bit, Rachel but I think I'm also developing a more discerning palette there as well. I grew up with gallon buckets of ice cream and we graduated to the quart size when we were married (a whole gallon for two was just too tempting). But we've since been dabbling in the pint sizes of fancy ice creams (Haagen Daas' five, for example or other smaller creameries) and are being won over to the small taste of great quality vs. have-all-you-like quantity boat.

    To pick a dessert, right now I think I'd go with fruit plus almost anything - pie, cobbler, chocolate, ice cream. I'm in a very fruity frame of mind these days (grin)

  3. You're so weird and should pass all your cake and mini cake this direction.
