My girl Allegra is a big fan of cake. CAKE. She loves it. Would eat it for breakfast, lunch, and tea if I’d let her. Which of course I don’t. For the record.
Today we went to a Family Fun Day & Cake Bake Competition. We lured Allegra there with the promise of cake. A promise she did not let us renege on. Oh no.
So we bought her a modest, child-sized cupcake, with a heart on top. She chose it. She then devoured it. It was by her account, deeeee-licious.
Then she made a new friend and ran around a playing field for a long time. And the new friend’s mummy offered her another cupcake. Rather larger than the first she’d had. As long as it was okay with me, she could have it. I could hardly say no could I?!
So that’s two cakes she’s had today.
You could say it’s been a good day.
Possibly one of the best days of her life.
For that is the power of cake.
