Gilding the Lily

Two for the price of one today!





I won it in a raffle, this delicious fruity cake.
To win anything at all was a surprise!
It lay there in it's glory and I said 'For goodness sake!
That cake itself is quite sufficient prize!'
But the Lily had been Gilded, with these lovely yellow flowers,
Frangipani blossoms, seeming to belong!
Both cake and frangipani should have lasted days, not hours,
But neither of them lasted very long!
A human cake here:

In my house the cats would eat the flowers and the people would eat the cake. Lifespan of the average cake here, 4 hours, the flowers don't even get that.
