Let me eat cake!

After working almost ten hours yesterday, I grabbed my fork and rushed out the door.  I jumped into the silver bullet and pulled hastily out of the parking structure.  I stopped just outside the exit to make a quick phone call since I had no idea in what direction to head.   Once my destination was confirmed and scouted on the local map of the city, I slowly pulled into the street traffic of Los Angeles.   I inched along grudgingly, mad as hell that the idiot people would not get out of my way.  Did they not know that I was on a date with destiny?

Thirty or forty minutes later, maybe longer, I arrived at my clandestine location.  Had it only been thirty minutes?  It felt like eternity. I swear every rubber-necking, brake checking slow poke was on the road in front of me! Errrr!!!

I whispered the super secret password that allowed my entrance into the grand halls of this very super secret location.  A guard dog met me along the way and escorted me to the final door. What, you ask was behind that door?  Well, for me it held either hell or heaven but I would only know if I dared to cross the threshhold.

Being a gutsy broad and knowing I was armed with my handy dandy fork, I entered a place where few have gone before.  I stepped into the twilight zone.  It's a place where cakes that are baked in the lonestar realm are miraculously transported for mere mortals like me to taste.  But this wasn't just any cake. It's a cake that legends are created around.  It's a cake that few have witnessed in the real world.  It's tales have been handed down from journal to journal in that far off distant land of AOL-J.

I know you are wondering what miraculous confection was placed in front of me.  Well, ladies and gentlemen, it was none other than a Slomo Coca-cola Cake! ::::gasp:::   The very cake that we've only seen in pictures of old sat on a plate before me.  I had to pinch myself to be sure that I wasn't dreaming.  As my fork cut through the moist layers of chocolate bliss, I looked up to see the keeper of the spellbinding concoction snapping pictures of me.  Normally, I would run in terror from such a hideous soul stealing contraption but I couldn't.  With every bite I was transported to a place that few have dreamed of, let alone experienced. And, I was going to savor it down to every last bite and lick.  :-D

Thanks Slomo and Freee!!! You both ROCK!!!!

Is that a happy face I see? Yes, she is smiling and I bet her tummy is having a party too. Now that the world has seen what this marvel of baking has done to you, when do the rest of us get a taste? Hugs Lanny

Ooooh yeah girl!  Just looking at those pics makes me want cake for breakfast!  I've GOT to stop eating it...but it's almost impossible.  I love your reenactment of the evening.  The 'guard dog' says HI by the way.  She must've brought you every toy she owns... after the initiation, that is.  Apparently, you passed her test [the little growler].  :)

Oh, the happiness that is SloMo's Coca-Cola cake!!  LOL  I wasn't exaggerating, right?  It's the best cake in the world, the universe, created by the angels, and hand delivered to you by the SloMo.  tehehehe...  I have a hot one on the stove right now, just waiting to be iced and mailed to Armandt.  Lucky Schmuck!  LOL

I'm so glad you got to try my cake. Now, when I drool over it in my journal, you'll know EXACTLY what I'm drooling about.  Rawrrrrrrr.... :D

Oh My!  You even licked the plate!  I have to get me some of that cake!!!!!  WOW!!  I say Slomo should start selling it on the internet to every woman who is PMS'ing and she would make a billion dollars in a week!!!  What a great entry and I am jealous that you got to try this cake!!!!!
Hugs and love, Lisa
P.S.:  The pics of you are absolutely GORGEOUS!!  Tell whomever was taking the pics to take more of you!!  Was it the lighting or the chocolate bliss that made you look so gorgeous?!  Hee-hee

Oh, Robbie, that looks SO good.  I've gotta ask SloMo if substituting Diet Coke makes it low carb-diet friendly.  I'm sure enough nudging and winking could get a resounding ''Why, of course it does.'' ;D

Yumm, Coca Cola cake. I grew up eating it in our hourse. It was one of mom's favorite recipes, and she even serves it in her quilt shop cafe to this day, together with other dangerous confections.
