It is the opinion of this website that we do not get enough cake in our lives. Cake should not be relegated to wedding parties or birthday festivities or the end to a celebratory meal. Because cake, when given the opportunity, is here to make your life better.
Did you lose your keys and stub your toe on the way out the door this morning? Cake can fix that. Do you need a peace offering to smooth things over with a friend? Cake is there for you, clearing its throat in the corner. Is it a day that ends in a "y"? You should probably consume some cake.
There is a time and place for three-tiered, sprinkle-coated beauties that leave you with frosting under your fingernails, but most of the time, you want something a little simpler. You need a recipe that can be mixed together with one hand using (mostly) ingredients from your pantry. You need a cake you can eat a thick slice of for breakfast without getting sugar-fueled heart palpitations. You need an anytime cake.
So, without further ado, here are 10 more reasons to eat cake -- any time you please.
And now... let us all eat more cake.
