Dear Cake,

I miss you Cake. It was only a few days ago I saw you at your most delicious. I was tempted- but I held back-in fear you'd notice the ice cream I had earlier that day. It was a mistake, I should have taken you then, but now it's too late. I was happy today Cake. Thinking I'd come home and have you will a tall glass of Milk, you and Milk got along so well. You sat as you usually did, on the table, beaming with chocolaty deliciousness, but as I came closer I realized some thing was wrong.
Cake….. you'd come down with a terrible infection, and you were ultimately pronounced dead. Why didn't I notice sooner? Had it been there all along with out my notice? I cried. I had to call my mother and tell her I was taking you away-to where all infected cakes go. I somberly had to drink Milk with out you. Though Milk lifted my spirits it was never as great as it was with you. I should have finished you sooner Cake then none of this would have happened. I hope for your safe trip into the Sky of Cakes.

Eternally lost with out you,
Blyu

P.S. If you reincarnate come back as a pound cake please.
I came home to find my cake all molded today. 8C as i threw it away i found myself saying my sad goodbyes. *sobs* thus- i had to write a letter.








no idea what the category is for this. its a poem thats not a poem.

This was hilarious. I've had this happen to me too, it's terrible...

Only thing, this isn't really a poem. It's completely prose, through and through. Yeah, it's fiction, but that doesn't make it poetry. Just saying.

When you introduced Milk too, that was just so awesome. Chocolate cake just isn't the same without milk. This was fun to read. (:

Hahahaha I think this just cheered me up! THis line in particular made me laugh: "I had to call my mother and tell her I was taking you away-to where all infected cakes go."

There's a small typo here: "chocolaty"

And I think there should be a paragraph gap left after this: "I came closer I realized some thing was wrong."

Nitpicking aside, this is awesome. :+fav:

Aww, poor cake, may it rest well in the sky of cakes! I really hope it does come back as a pound cake for you, perhaps with some strawberries and whipped cream!

Too cute, and sad D':

Y'know what's really sad? I have to throw away cakes five days a week. At the end of every shift of mine, I have to throw out all the cakes that didn't sell by the sell-by date, and usually there's at least three.

Read: I throw away at least THREE WHOLE CAKES every night that I work. Sad-face.

Tonight it was four.

Four half-sheet cakes.

That serve 48 people.

192 people could have had a slice of cake today, but nobody bought them, so I had to throw them away.

And such is the tragedy of my job.

8C you should be Super-Cake man and sweep the cakes away to safety! Into the arms of hungry hobos!

Gendreavus Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2010
If it means anything, we do donate pretty much everything else that goes past the sell-by date to the food bank, it's just that the cakes need to be refrigerated, and since that's unpossible for them to do for whatever reason, we have to throw them out.

The smelly hobos get plenty of bread/bagel/pie/muffin/cookie/strudel/cupcakes though, worry not dear friend!

This happened to me with some bread. Although I didn't notice until I had already made a sandwich out of it, and eaten half of it. :iconimhorrifiedplz:

o,o actually I dont know if its corn cake or corn bread... I just know it was some dough thing that was sweetened by corn... might have been corn bread. Thinking back at it... I'm not sure if there is even a thing called corn cake :B


Mea Culpa.
