Ever since Orkut has had 4 birthday reminders on my home page, I’ve been dreaming of cake.Now I’ll eat any cake.I really do love cake a lot.I know some people think I’d eat sweet bread in the name of cake.Whatever!
But what I really wanted was a Gaylord Tiramisu cake.Gaylord isn’t the best bakery in Mumbai, but it comes with a lot of history.For me it comes with a lot of sweet memories too. I think for the last 13 years, each year that I have had my birthday in this city and my friends have been around they would get me a Gaylord Tiramisu.Now the deal with this cake is that you have to order a minimum of a kilo because there goes a lot of rum into the cake.Once they open a bottle of rum for the cake they pour it all in.So when you order a Tiramisu with Gaylord, they will invariably advice you to order 2 or 2.5 kilos.It has that much rum in it.We of course always only got a kilo.We loved the high we got with each bite.For us it was our yearly bit of legal alcohol, when we weren’t allowed any.
We is me and very close friend of mine.
So my big plan was to order two half kilos this week.One half for the birthday person, one half for me.Knowing how dripping in rum this cake generally is, I happened to ask the birthday person if they actually liked rum.
No is the answer I got.
I felt this deep sharp pain.Trust me, I was numb for all of 3 and half seconds.I could see my dream of digging into some dark chocolate rum dripping cake over the weekend just crumble.I was bordering depression.I even decided no one needed to get a cake from me on their birthday.Hmmph!Yeah I was that upset.
But birthdays are birthdays and everyone deserves a cake.All of my friends definitely do.We live by the motto more cake the merrier.So what the hell I thought.Plain chocolate cake for them, and a whole Tiramisu for me.:D:D:D
Have a nice weekend ye all..I know I definitely will.
