Too pretty to eat

Remember that tree cake I made? Well, it was for a party on Saturday. On Tuesday I saw the women I'd made it for and asked if it had tasted okay as I'd used a slightly different method.

'Oh, we haven't cut it yet. It's too pretty.'

I've made some nice cakes before. Pretty cakes, good cakes. But in our house that never ever gets in the way of eating. Such restraint. Maybe that's why they're slim and I'm ... a little podgy round the waist.

I'm usually quite self-disciplined about food but if a cake looked tasty I wouldn't give a hoot how pretty it was. I'd seize the knife and hack out a slice straightaway.
