Cake is a gift

The monthly office birthday cake – Oh Noes!

But then I thought to myself: Cake should always be a gift. It should be given, received and shared with a sense of occasion and thankfulness.

So, you should either give or receive cake but never just buy a piece of cake that cannot be celebrated, even in a small way.

In today’s body-obsessed world, cake should be a rare enough occasion to be celebrated without anxiety about bodily harm, not to mention actual, lasting bodily harm. Otherwise, cake will never be received with unabashed pleasure and gratitude. And the whole point of cake is unabashed pleasure and gratitude.
