Pride Goeth Before Fall

You may think this looks good enough to eat...

but you need to know
that I spent so much time admiring it
that I forgot to take the greaseproof paper
off the bottom of the top layer of cake.

Who can blame you?

I might have eaten through a box.

I hope you feel better for the confession - I'm not sure I'd have owned up!

Heh ;) It still looks droolable, and wax paper peels... mash it up and manga. Yum.

Colours the Clown (my buddy) lives around the corner from a patisserie I like to call "The Gallery". We go there just to look at the art.

Oh dear! I do hope that the act of cutting through the cake informed you of your mistake, and that you didn't discover it by biting down on it!

I'm so glad things like that happen to other people too!

umm oops. But still, once the paper was gone I know that cake was divine.

oh dear.

Reminds of the time I backed a lovely cake for our anniversary and put it in the oven to hide it from my then boyfriend... only to reheat it the next morning WITHOUT taking the cling film off it.

Yeah. Not nice.
