Happy Valentines Day Diane O......by Diane Ogden
You should have seen all the 80 plus year old men walking in and out with flowers and cupcakes and cookies, I suspect for some nice lady back at the ranch or home in the nearby neighborhood. Or maybe like me there was no one at the ranch and they were merely severely having a Valentine's Day sugar love craving. I love worthless cake roses. I have loved worthless cake roses ever since I was a kid. I know I know, and they leave a greasy fat coating in your mouth. Fat! Yup! Do not care I love wedding cake roses, birthday cake roses, Valentine cake roses! 4th of July cake roses and so on.
So I am not going to wait eight hours until I get home to scarf this little darlin and her two rose up. I am sitting in my car in the grocer parking lot eating this sweet on myself cake with the spoon I brought in my lunch to eat my no sugar Motts Grannie Smith Applesauce. How embarrassing is that to tell.
So notice I get to the first rose(I moved it) and I am so totally excited. Sugar RUSH coming! I decide to eat only one petal so as to savor the two little roses upon my pallet. I tried to scoop a petal off and discovered it was hard. I thought, whaaaooo, my rose is old and hard. Then I started to hit the center of the rose and it was hello rock hard and obviously made of plastic. Had I thrown it in my mouth whole like I usually do, so I can roll it around and enjoy it for as long as possible, I could have broken a tooth. What kind of jerk bakery puts plastic roses on an itty bitty chitty cake and charges $4.99. Robbery I say! Corporate Valentines Day itty bitty chitty cake robbery.
