Our original idea was to tie it to an important Marie Antoinette date of some kind, but it got moved around a bit and the first (annual?) Let Them Eat Cake Day was celebrated this past Sunday.
We had meatloaf cupcakes with mashed potato “frosting,” crab cakes, corn bread cake with chili sauce, pink lemonade cake, lemon blueberry cake, blueberry pound cake, pumpkin whoopie cake, and leftover graduation sheet cake.
After gorging ourselves on a round of savory cakes and a round of sweet cakes, we traipsed outside to a) slip into a food coma or b) burn off some sugar high with a game of croquet.
Maggie demonstrates the proper food coma form.
Afterward we pulled out our Tupperware and divvied up the copious leftovers, and let’s just say I’ll be celebrating Cake day all week!
