Daily Prompt: Cake

I love baking ergo I love baking cake.
Lemon Drizzle is a particular fave with family and friends.
Especially the drizzle part.
I’m not always one to stick to the stated amount of lemon juice. I always add more. That way, the sponge is fluffy and dripping with sweet, succulent lemon with every mouthful.
Cake, I find, can do so many different things.
Cake can heal. Cake can soothe.  Cake can reach out, be a gift, be a starting point to conversations.
Cake can open doors, can serve as an apology, an acknowledgement of something gone wrong & the willingness to start over, make amends.
Sometimes, though, despite the most tastiest, most flavoursome, most awesome cake, given as a way to reconcile, the recipient will pass it to another, even though they realise the intention, the weight behind the gesture.  They will not share in the offering, and will turn away.
Despite such setbacks, you carry on. Cake still has the power to bring tears of joy from sadness, the hope of love from pain.
Ah, cake. The simplest of food and yet the most powerful. 



There's always stuff in life we're not sure of. I'm thankful , and eternally grateful, to have a love for God. Yes, I've put my life, my family, my everyday existence, into God's more than capable hands. Some would say I'm mad, some would pooh pooh the idea... As General Melchett once remarked in Blackadder Goes Forth.."You know, if there's one thing I've learnt from being in the Army, it's never ignore a pooh-pooh. I knew a Major, who got pooh-poohed, made the mistake of ignoring the pooh-pooh. He pooh-poohed it! Fatal error! 'Cos it turned out all along that the soldier who pooh-poohed him had been pooh-poohing a lot of other officers who pooh-poohed their pooh-poohs. In the end, we had to disband the regiment. Morale totally destroyed... by pooh-pooh!" So, have a read, have a think. I don't have all the answers, but I know a man who has ;-)
