Whew! It’s been a while! I’ve been very stressed, sick, and overworked, but no one likes to hear that.
Too bad. You’re not paying me.
Anyways! I just had the most ridiculous thing in my head, so thought I’d share. Tonight I made cake. Coconut cake with coconut icing and coconut flakes on top. I thought of sending the photo to a friend, and then realized they would see…nothing. It is, I realized, the whitest cake on the planet. Every ingredient was white–it didn’t even use egg yolks. I wonder…does that make me cake racist? I’m not a people racist. I love all peoples. But were my baked goods as color blind?
I always use chocolate, but shouldn’t pale coconut milk, coconut shreds, cake flour and white sugar their moment to shine, too? Or did I make the equivalent of a kkk cake?
And immediately, this voice popped into my head.
When you begin hysterically giggling by yourself late at night in the kitchen while you point at a cake, you really really need a vacation.
