I was really intending to get this post out earlier today, but sometimes other things happen.
For example, today my computer time was eaten up by comparing composite decking materials and prices and setting up estimates on our Bear bitten bumper.
Oh, and trying to track down pie pans for making stepping stones at VBS next week.
Yes, folks, I am in full blown VBS mode. Today my friend Becki came over (if you have a day off work and I know about it, I will rope you in too!) and we fashioned a sort of cave out of my lawn mower box. Last year it was a pirate ship, the year before that it was a castle and a paper mache garden.
At least it is not the day before it starts, which is my norm.
But enough about that, it is time to talk about carrot cake.
I don't think that carrot cake deserves to be called cake.
Oh, I will eat it. If it is the only dessert option.
But I object to something with a very orange vegetable in it being called "cake".
And what is up with the tiny frosted carrots on top of each piece?
Must it declare itself so unsubtly?
"Huh! look at me, I am a vegetable masquerading as cake! And I have tiny cute carrots made out of frosting. Isn't that clever? The veggie is a cake and the frosting is a veggie..."
But, I know that not everyone feels that way. I know this because the other day I was at work and we were discussing cake. (why not? It seems a safe topic). Carrot cake came up and I mentioned how I feel (very casually). Conversation stopped. You'd think I'd just come out and told them I overdosed my patient with 10 times the correct morphine dose.
I am not above delving into the hot topics here...
What do you think?
Carrot Cake: yay or nay?
