In the beginning there was the bowl and it was empty and without batter and it was good.
And the Lord said, “Let there be eggs and flour,” and the batter took substance and it was good.
On the second day the Lord said, “Let there be poppyseed and carrots and spices from the corners of the Earth. And the batter came in many varieties and it was good.
On the third day the Lord said, “Let there be butter cream and cream cheese and chocolate and lemons for custard filling.” And it was even better.
On the fourth day the Lord said, “Let there be marzipan and rosettes of spun sugar. Let there be decoration and embellishment to light the eyes and hearts of all who see.” And it was beautiful.
On the fifth day the Lord created Adam who promptly left in search of a cup of coffee.
On the sixth day the Lord said, “Adam, come here. There’s someone I want you to meet.”
And Eve said, “Would you like a piece of Devil’s Food?”
Adam looked at the wonders around him; at the beasts of the field and the birds of the air and replied unto her, “Sure. Piece of cake.”
And the Earth began to tremble.
