Cake – A little ooh ahhh

Some shoots really catch people’s attention. When I should a few people these pictures, including the chef himself, there was a definite look of joy on their faces and an expression of “ooh ah”. Just for a little fun, I’ve accompanied these yummy pics with some fun quotes on tea and cake…..bon appetite!

“All sorrows in life stem from the lack of cake. If you had your own cake, you wouldn’t bother trying to take away the other person’s cake! And, if the cake you had were beautiful enough, you wouldn’t bother trying to melt the icing on that other person’s cake! And if you always had a very beautiful cake that was always beautiful enough, then you would have a smile on your face all the time and wouldn’t even care if other people were enjoying their own cakes! Because you’d be enjoying yours, too! Therefore, I hereby decree that all sorrows can be fixed by many beautiful cakes! Bake a cake!” ― C. JoyBell C.

Gentleman's Afternoon Tea

“In Britain, a cup of tea is the answer to every problem.
Fallen off your bicycle? Nice cup of tea.
Your house has been destroyed by a meteorite? Nice cup of tea and a biscuit.
Your entire family has been eaten by a Tyrannosaurus Rex that has travelled through a space/time portal? Nice cup of tea and a piece of cake. Possibly a savoury option would be welcome here too, for example a Scotch egg or a sausage roll.” David Walliams.
