Wishful Thinking is Very Fashionable

I do believe that cakes are very fashionable. Like bags, they are pretty and structured. Like a pair of wide legged trousers, they are comforting. Like a pair of Jimmy Choos, they can be as elegant or understated as you want them to be. So, basically a cake is the love child of three things- wide-legged trousers, Choos and bags. Well, according to My Republic of Fashion, they are!

I have blown out the candles to a few cakes in my time. For my 18th, the cake was a handbag. For my 21st, the cake was a bit confused, but still fashionable all the same. There was shoes and bags thrown willy-nilly all over it. Did I like it? No, I loved it!

This year, my cake was devoid of any fashion accessory, per se, but it was the most fashionable cake I have ever laid my eyes on. Quite literally death by chocolate, layers of chocolate, layers of cream. Love from the words Happy Birthday.

But there is one universally special thing about cakes (even if they don't taste or look great) :You get to make a wish. How fashionable is that? I say, very! I always make a wish, do you?

PS Just something a bit different on this Tuesday.
PPS My sister's made this beautiful cake...ta very much, darlings.
