You can never have too many cakes

As Shana wrote yesterday, Wednesday was grocery delivery day. And we received not one but two cakes, just in case one wasn’t delivered. This idea appealed to me and I said as much:

‘What did you call that second cake again?’ I asked.

‘A back-up,’ said Shana. Obviously, it comes from years of working with computers. They can be unreliable at times, so it’s always a good idea to back up your work whenever possible. Shana had simply extended the idea to cake. I preferred a phrase more associated with tv cop shows:

‘Cake number 2 is a bit like calling in reinforcements,’ I said. ‘Attention all units: we have a serious situation. Send in the Carrot Cake Squad!’ (It’s a bit like the Sweeney, only with more buttercream icing.)

Shana’s policy is all very well, but to minimise the risk of being left high and dry and  totally cakeless, I suggest an improvment on her strategy. Next time, order three cakes.
