Unsad Lemon Cake

This is a slice of the lemon chocolate cake I baked after reading The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake last week. I think I may have a new compulsion to bake every fictional cake that I encounter, or maybe it’s just any fictional cake I encounter as written by Aimee Bender, who writes about food and eating in such a concrete, tangible way, rendering the ordinary extraordinary. Whose description simultaneously blows your mind and has you going, “Yeah, I know exactly what you mean…” Anyway, the cake was good, and devoid of sadness. I wonder what kind of fictional cake I’ll encounter next?

    I adore Aimee Bender. I haven’t read this yet mostly because I don’t want to read it and then have nothing left of hers to read. I was particularly saddened the other day when I watched a woman return it to the bookstore, saying it was “unsuitable.” It was all I could do not to keep myself from screaming “No! YOU’RE unsuitable!”

      You are the reason I read Aimee Bender! And I am not sorry. Thank you.

    Hmmm, as long as it’s not liniment cake I think you’ll be fine 😉 What a lovely idea. Very tempting.
