    A good cake is not just delicious food but is a work of art. Here is one of my favorites, gateau St-Honore.
    St Honore is the patron saint of Bakers and pastry chefs.

    I wouldn't classify that as a cake. It looks like a large pastry. But I do like cake.

    A chocolate mayonnaise cake is really good. I also like tiramisu cakes and this one cake I had made with Amaretto was really good, but I find most cakes bland, dull and not really enjoyable.

    I like cake, but I wouldn't call myself a lover of it. My wife ran a side hustle cake business for a while, making mostly bespoke novelty cakes. Some of them were pretty amazeballs.

    Her cookie monster was particularly memorable. (3d, individually piped fur, all edible, including his cookie jar and eye balls...lol)

    I quite like cake, having learnt to make some in lockdown. However my tastes are simpler than the kind of huge and complicated confection in the picture. I would never have the patience. I do simple Victoria sponge cakes, lemon drizzle cake and occasionally choux pastry for sort of misshapen chocolate eclairs.

    One thing I have found is that if one makes a Victoria sponge with a whipped cream filling with chopped strawberries in it, contrary to what one might expect, it can be frozen in chunks and thawed out quite successfully. The pieces of strawberry go a bit soft and the juice from them tends to run into the cream, but actually that's fine, it almost tastes better that way. A tablespoon or two of kirsch drizzled into the the sponge also gives it a boost. So that's now what I make for my son on his birthday and we freeze whatever we can't eat in a couple of days.

    You totally reminded me I had birthday cake in the freezer...

    My husband made me a triple layer orange cream cake for my birthday. The kicker was, the day after my birthday was the Navaratri fast. So, what didn't got eaten was frozen...

    Thanks for the reminder...

    There's an ongoing joke between me and a few friends of mine that im obsessed with chocolate cake. I am and use a lot of excuses to get it. I legit will walk down the street 15 minutes to the store get just chocolate cake then walk 15 minutes back home. I'm not joking. I love chocolate cake.
