What Happened to the Cake ?

August 16, 2011 § Leave a comment

Back in June I wrote a post about the travel business and how every celebration (big or small) is celebrated with cake (It’s All About Cake).
This has been quite the curse, but a fabulous curse,a curse that I am very willing to live with for the remainder of my life 😉
The post has been mentioned among my colleagues, who found the post funny and very accurate in my rendition of the cake’s role in the travel business.
I have made sure to say to them that though having that much cake is not helping me in the healthy lifestyle I occationally try to live, but I am willing to make that sacrifice for cake.
However, yesterday, something happened. And I am still trying to wrap my head around it. I am hoping that it wasn’t something that I said…

Yesterday, the travel acency that I work for moved in to brand new offices. Everything is new. Desks, computer screens, keyboards,cupboards. It’s nice. I like it 🙂
When I arrived I was greeted with a glass of champagne (non-alcoholic, of course). Throughout the day various fruit platters were presented to us in the kitchen area. Nice fruit, too (and berries). Strawberry, apples, some weird-looking yellow fruit, and amazing big raspberries.
I want to start out saying that I am not ungreatful, and I did appreciate fresh fruit and berries. However, as I walked out from the new offices after work yesterday, I was puzzled.
What happened to the cake ?
It was a celebration, a new start. The mood was light, everyone was happy. This would have been cause for cake in the past. A very big cake. Maybe marzipan (the soft, fresh kind), or something big and chocolately with a thick layer of fugde-like topping.
But, no cake.

So, I am going to end this post with the question looming over me. And hope that by the next time we celebrate something, the question need not be asked again.
