In Other News – 01 March 2016

2 min read


Marie Antoinette once famously (maybe) said “let them eat cake” when the peasants were revolting. And at the front door. And she may have had a point. Cake is magical, cake is life and cake makes everything better. The best thing about cake, is that it isn’t just for any one person. Want a chocolate cake? You’re sorted. Want a diabetic cake so that you don’t have a sugar-crash? DEAL. Hell, cakes are pretty much the only reason to even attend a wedding.

Want a cake baked by a bossy blowhard who has about as much Italian blood in him as Johnny Depp has Navajo DNA circulating through his circulatory system? We can do that. It’s also a great day for cake, as it happens to be Geoff’s birthday. For us, the day Geoff graced our offices with his presence this morning was one of the most important days of our lives. But for him, it was simply…Tuesday.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
