Friends, I know that CakeSpy is generally sweet and upbeat in tone, a sweet retreat from the everyday grind. But today we're going to have to get serious for a few minutes.
I feel as if it is my duty to solemnly address a rising epidemic in the world of sweets: dessert desertion.
I have compiled a collection of images to illustrate and bring attention to this alarming trend and to raise awareness for the plight of the abandoned pastry. I warn you, the following imagery may be disturbing.
This Oreo, for instance: cut down in its prime. It could have been that much more of a snack, if only it had been given a chance.
Or this croissant. Poor little buttery baked good wasn't even given a chance to be a complete breakfast.
And this muffin. I know, I know. The top is the best part. But did you really have to decapitate and then discard this muffin and leave its maimed remains for all of us to see?
And this donut, discarded with just a bite left. Who does that?
...and words can't even describe the pain and anguish that this image evokes.
But no, this plight isn't just limited to baked goods: I have, with my own eyes, witnessed a mass candy disposal. They could have been headed to Candy Mountain, but instead, it was Candy Murder.
But what can you, as an individual, do to help? Here are some tips.
- Eat quality sweets. This way, the desire to discard will be diminished.
- Wrap it up! Don't toss it just yet. You might want it later.
- Don't be a deserter! Offer it to a friend. A lot of people are happy to finish what you started, when it's in dessert form.
- And if you must discard? Please, do it humanely and out of the sight of sensitive sweet tooths like yours truly.
Please, take action! Don't let another sweet treat go to waste. Only you can prevent dessert desertion!
