The Quest for Cake...the Continuing Story

I have found what I've been searching for. I had to go to the local grocery store today so I thought I'd check out the bakery. Sure enough, they had cupcakes and slices of cake available. I'm very picky when it comes to frosting, I have to be sure it's not that sour whipped cream stuff. I must smell the sweetness through the plastic and with this beauty, I did.
Notice the large colored sprinkles on top. The layers of white cake goodness. Mmmmmm, caaaaake. Can't you just taste the granules of sugar in that frosting? I did. I ate about a 1/2" off one end. I plan to share this cake with Nick if he wants any. It might be too sweet for him. That would really break my heart.
The moral of the story: Don't pay $3 for a tiny yet unsatisfying cupcake from a posh bakery when you can pay $2.99 for a giant piece of cake at the supermarket.

Good moral to remember! Oft times the simple things are the best. The cake looks truly delicious and I'm loving those pretty polka-dot sprinkles.
