When you are obsessed with the 'everyday' I think it is only natural(?) to turn to cake. This one is titled "Mud Heart". Cake can be such a conundrum in itself. You go into the shop (and also if you make it yourself too) and you SEE the cake you want. You choose it firstly because of how it looks, catches you eye. Then you enquire as to its flavour. Mmmm, I think I'd like that! I'll take one. Hmmmm, looks a little lonely, and I quite liked the look of that one too, and what if someone comes around...
So by the time you get home you have more than you need for your (apparently because no one came) lonely existance.
As a visual person, you decide to paint it before you eat it. (For this one I put my timer on for 30 mins.) By the time you are done there are a thousand people asking what's for dinner and what can they eat and can they have that one and if you can get a word in to say "let's have it with a cuppa" you're lucky.
What did it taste like? I think Caitlin got to eat this one.
Anyway, the point is that cake always looks better than it tastes, except for the occasions when it tastes better than it looks, in which case there was no reason to paint it.
