Cake Poll: Let Me Eat Cake!

Giveaway: Let Me Eat Cake!
Do you love cake?

Do you really love cake?
Do you love cake so much that whenever you're in the same room, you find yourself unable to resist its siren call?
Then certainly Leslie F. Miller's new book, Let Me Eat Cake, is for you. Now, let's get it straight--though the book has a few recipes, that's not what it's about--it's more about the culture of cake, its lure and the lore behind it, baked up full of personal anecdotes and cake stories galore. And--as we were surprised and delighted to discover--there's even a mention of CakeSpy.com!

I found myself in Leslie's book!
And you, dear friend, could be the winner of a signed copy of the book. Oh, you want this!
To put your name in the running, simply answer this question in the comments. You can be as literal or as figurative as you like, just be sure to leave your thoughts on this important subject:
What is the best thing about cake? 

The poll will be closed on Monday at 12 p.m. PST, and the winner will be announced shortly thereafter. If you're interested in purchasing the book, click here. Oh, and in case you were interested, the cupcake shown is a Chai Cardamom cupcake from Seattle's Trophy Cupcakes!

Hmm, so hard to pick just one thing. I love that if you eat cake in little tiny slivers while standing up in the kitchen, it has no calories. Wait, that is true, right??? :)

The best thing about cake is there are SO many kinds you can bake. They bring back so many memories. The Chai Cardamom cupcake you mentioned has inspired me to work on my own version.

The best thing about cake is that it doesn't ever have to be the same twice.

April 10 | Unregistered CommenterBethany

The best part about cake? The frosting!

April 10 | Unregistered CommenterKipi

The best thing about cake is obviously cake fights. We found cake everywhere for weeks. In the toaster, in the microwave, in people's nostrils... Am I gross?

The best thing about cake is how versitle it is. It can be elegant or cutsie, it can be dense or it can be light and fluffy, it can go with ice cream or fruit, etc... No matter what, it is always tasty! YUMMMMM!

April 10 | Unregistered CommenterDeana

The best thing about cake is its soft fluffy texture... that is, if it is actually soft and fluffy and not dense and crumbly..haha

April 10 | Unregistered CommenterSteph

Its is great... what more do you need to say?

April 10 | Unregistered CommenterZoë

My favorite thing about cake is the filling/icing in between the layers. Definitely the best.

April 10 | Unregistered CommenterKathryn

Well the taste is great of course, but that first time you smell it while it is baking. I just love that!

April 10 | Unregistered CommenterCasey B.

It means something special is happening! :D (IE, I get to eat it!!)

April 10 | Unregistered Commenterherbstsonne

April 10 | Unregistered Commenterafarrell

My favorite thing about cake is that it reminds me of my childhood.

April 10 | Unregistered CommenterTreehouse Chef

The best thing about cake is sitting down at the kitchen table with a big slice and a glass of milk. And all of the many the good feelings that go along with that!

April 10 | Unregistered Commenterandrea jean

The best thing about cake is that it can look awful and taste amazing at the same time. What else can do that? :)

April 10 | Unregistered CommenterKira

The best thing about cake is when there is cake around it usually means a party or celebration. And if there isn't a party or celebration, there will be with cake around!

April 10 | Unregistered CommenterLynnetta

Cake makes boo-boos better.
Skinned knees, broken bones, fractured hearts...all made better by cake...I promise...

April 10 | Unregistered CommenterHeather

I love the contrast between the dense, moist cake and the light, sweet frosting. But there are so many things really! THANKS!

I love that 97 people are vying to win the book. :-)

I know, of course, that they would take anything you gave away, that they would be here whether you gave anything or not.

Because you, my friend, are the real cakestar.

That you can glom it together with bits of frosting to make the coolest shapes.
