According to Laurel, winner of Leslie F. Miller's new book Let Me Eat Cake from our most recent cake poll, it's a question of accessibility:
the best thing about cake is that anyone can make one. You can be a super baker and do it all from scratch, or just grab a boxed mix at the store. Cake is universal, it usually means a celebrating is going on, but the best part is there doesn't need to be a good reason to have cake. You want it... get it and enjoy it!
Sounds like a good idea to us! Til the next cake poll--stay sweet!
