The color parade continues...
As soon as my mother dropped this cake onto the dining room table, I knew I needed to remember it somehow. The colors don't, to the best of my knowledge, occur spontaneously in the natural world. At first, I refused to even consider eating a slice of this thing for fear it would mess up my insides.
I eventually had to bite the bullet when the kids' unfinished plates made their inevitable trip to Daddy's spot. Yes, I eat my children's leftovers with frightening frequency. No, I have not gained any weight in the process. No, I have no idea why that is so. Lucky, I guess.
But back to this cake. I haven't photoshopped the colors. I haven't punched the light levels. This is as it appeared when it first emerged from its cake cozy. Nuts, isn't it?
Your turn: Would you eat this? Can a weirded-out culinary color scheme make you shy away from certain foods?
