DailyDirt: Piece Of Cake

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

For people who are trying to watch their waistline, cake is generally off-limits. Sure, there are ways to make cake "healthier" -- for example, by using less sugar and substituting oil and butter with things like pureed fruit and vegetables or yogurt -- but that cake just won't be as satisfying as a rich and decadent piece of cake made the traditional way. Here's some good news and a few examples of decadence taken to the next level. By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    Apparently, the key is to have sweets in the morning when the body's metabolism is at its peak

    So those sugary cereals may actually be good for you?

    BRB, grocery shopping.

    "The cherpumple consisted of a cherry pie, an apple pie, and a pumpkin pie -- each baked within a cake."

    too big a cakeception to eat. Now, if those were very shallow tarts.. hmm...

    Its like the age-old hamburger problem. a hamburger made 'fancy' but too big to eat with bites is a waste.

    and the comment about cake dispensing posters threw me off at first, until I saw the linked page and subbed "poster" for "street-level billboard".

    Speaking of those, is it just me or are malls Full of those now? light-up, animated, digital, scrolling, its a wide world.
