Ode to Cake

Monday, February 28, 2011

"i like the idea of mixing by hand,
of cocoa powder and flour
and of sugar and fat.
of pudding pans and cake tins
and tiny oval molds.

of weighty centres
of dense layers
and of pink buttercream.

of mixing bowls
and spatulas
and vintage wire racks.

of hearty slices
of pewter plates
and of frosting just so.

it's the sweetness of simple
by way of cake
and i like that."
