Love is a piece of cake

Walnut and rum cake

My love, my love for you is such
whatever I may say, it’s  never too much!
I have sung many paeans to our love in the past
’tis time to renew vows for our love unsurpassed!
If you remember, my love, we bonded over our love for cakes
you love to eat ’em, I love to bake!

Caramel custard

My love for you is as deep and luscious
as the deep caramel custard delicious
just as I get intoxicated looking into your bourbon eyes
a generous splash of rum in tiramisu induces your sighs
I love your feather touch kisses which skim my dainty fingertips
they remind me of the frothy as air meringue that I whip!


Summer, winter, autumn, come rain or hail
with your arms around me in the kitchen, my baking never fails
to use baking terms to measure my love for you
teaspoons, tablespoons and cups will never do
my love for  you is immeasurable like the grains of sugar sweet
you make me melt like butter, O my dessert treat!

Pecan cake

It is bake off time again on WordPress! This annual baking bonanza is held by Mel, Gary and Jeanne. You can read more about it here.

It is a great festival; vibrant and full of good music and yummy goodies! I love writing about it. You can read my poem about it in 2020 here and in 2019 here. Please join the fun.

    1. I am delighted I could lure your senses, dear zen sis! Appreciate it. ❤️

      Lol! There is no comparison, Kate. Mich is a class apart and a bestselling author. I am just a dabbler, who usually gets inspired while in the kitchen. 😂

  4. This transformed baking for me
    messy, clouds of flour, sticky dough, loads of measuring utensils, tumbles of utensils
    a beautiful, calm, deep, loving, mindful, and spiritual process, that it can be!
