Who doesn't love cake?!

Was really not sure where to put this, hopefully Misc is fine!!

Anyway, I don't normally back things on Kickstarter (I fear the rabbit hole) but my friend made a game! It's a set collector and the object is to build cakes. Super cute, simple and straightforward, and it launched today (in fact I just got home from the launch party and I'm in massive sugar rush mode...there may have been cupcakes).

:D

I opened this thread fully prepared to kill the enemies of cake. Seems like something my mom would play on her computer. Middle aged women and sugar themed games, I can confirm it is a thing. Whatever gets her in the mood to bake is a positive outcome always.

...cake stinks. Pie is better.

If Mcdonalds can sell apple pies why can't Taco Bell sell cake burritos?

^...what about churros? Aren't you kind of describing churros? "Vagely tube-shaped Mexican pastry that is definitely not pie?" Taco Bell sells those, don't they? I mean, it's not strictly cake batter wrapped up in a tortilla (that sounds absolutely vile), but it's a thing. I don't like churros, but I'd swear they sell them. Like the soft version of those cinnamon crispas I also don't like.

Churros aren't horrible, but they can't compete with those caramel apple empanadas, in any event. (Taco Bell pie is better than Taco Bell cake. It's almost as though pie is so inherently better than cake that even Taco effin Bell can't quite foul it up. Who knew.)

^The closest thing Taco Bell has to churros is their styrofoam cinnamon twists (you're right about the how good the empanadas are, though). If you want tasty fast-food churros, you go to Jack in the Box instead.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

...there are no Jack in the Box, or White Castle, or Long John Silver's in Wiscontooine.

There may be an A&W's out Eau Claire way, only why the blistering hell would anyone go to Eau Claire. Place reminds me of that mountain of burning tires from 'Sam and Max Hit the Road'.

That looks very cute! I came into this thread fully prepared to defend my preference for pie though.

A&W used to have this crazy jalapeño burger that could burn a hole in your intestines the size of a quarter. I absolutely adored it. Also doesn't Taco Bell have those hot cream filled donuts now. That's kinda cake related. I will say this about pie though. Strawberry Rhubarb pie when made correctly is unbeatable.

I like cake in moderation. Too much is not so good.
