Sometimes things just click. When your babysitter brings a Stubbe’s Lemon Torte to your house you know you chose the right caregiver. We picked Donna to babysit Felix after a rigorous vetting process investigating which dessert shops she frequented in Toronto.
Cake fits any occasion–a quick lunch, after a bikini wax or as a sympathy gift. No one will know who sent what bunch of smelly lilies to a funeral but your chocolate cake gift basket will stand out like the beacon of plastic-wrapped comfort food that is is.
And let’s face it, attendance would soar. Next time I fantasize about who’s coming to my funeral I’m going to imagine myself in an open coffin with my hands arranged to hold a large chocolate Krispy Bunny. I think it will get more kids motivated to participate. Nibbles encouraged.

Maybe you should make a mold of yourself and make a life sized layer cake and leave instructions in the will for all to take a piece home. You could freeze any leftovers and have them thawed out on the anniversary of your passing – like with wedding cake.
Vic- I like your thinking and I see a business plan in your future. I would like to be a lemon sponge cake with lemon curd layers and vanilla bean frosting.
