Sweet Dreams: Sleeping on Cakes

I’d gone to several supermarket bakeries looking for the right pillow-like cake to sleep on. I stood and stared and got down and looked at the cakes from the side, in the case, trying to imagine how they would photograph with my head on them. One bakery woman with bad teeth said I could sample any of them.

I said no I wouldn’t be eating it.

She said, “Oh, for someone else?”

I said, “No. I’m going to be sleeping on it, like a pillow.”

She said, “Why don’t you just use a pillow.”

I said, “Because a pillow is not a cake.”

    Sorry, but imo this is a really stupid thing to do. The oil content of icing will likely cause your face to break out with acne.

    [It was actually very moisturizing and i had no acne as a result, but it was gross and very greasy and i will never eat cheap cake again. - me]
