The Upsides and Downsides of Cake

by cricketjeff on January 8, 2012.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

My daughter made some whoopee pies
And lemon drizzle cake
I added chocolate nut surprise
(It isn’t hard to bake)
Meringues and fruit and fresh ice-cream
Of course there’s custard too
But now I’ve lived this gourmand’s dream
I’m twice the size of you!
