It reminds me of my sister’s and brother-in-law’s habit of buying two cakes for an upcoming event. One is the ‘stunt cake’ that you eat before the event 1) because you can’t stand not having un-eaten cake in the house and 2) because you want to make sure that the second cake is going to be worthy of your guests.
Ron baked a double-layer cake for my birthday on Friday night (maybe Thursday). 2 Super-Moist yellow cakes with chocolate frosting. Very yummy. The trouble is, we are the only people in the house eating cake. After our Saturday workouts we came home to feed. Most gym rats would have a recovery shake. We ate recovery cake.
