Confession to the Tooth Fairy

Even when I was a skinny little kid who refused to eat anything fishy, smelly, liquidy, flaky, or spicy, my mouth was easily plied with anything that was composed mostly of glucose...

Assorted sweet at a shop in Old Town San Diego
Hard candies, soft candies, chewy candies, and even airy ones (love those cotton candies!). Spongy cake with hard icing, chocolaty German cakes with cherry on top, blueberries cheesecakes with candy crust, hot fudge over corn cake and all sorts of sorbets and ice-cream. If only any of these counted as a wholesome healthy meal... 

A sort of luggage that's sure to disappear before you claim it.
While I'm thinking sweet, I ran into this strikingly unappetizing cake at a farmers' market a while back. No, I didn't upload a wrong photo, dudes. The luggage IS the cake!

That cake may not be visually appetizing, but wow, the detail is incredibly stunning! :)

I'm not sure that anyone think "wholesome and healthy" when they have a cold!
Love the new look!

It makes me want to know what's inside.

Hiya HM: It is, isn't it? I couldn't believe it was a cake when I first saw it. Those ads placards sitting on top of the thing didn't help the impression. :oD I didn't buy it, though did go for a very delicious bite size piece of red velvet chocolate cake. Guess I could have resisted the thing, but then that'd go against my motto: I'll die young, but I'll die fat and happy!

Ciao Eyes: I wasn't. I confess! What I was thinking was 'a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down,' ... I suspect that that bite piece of red velvet chocolate cake had a tad more than a tablespoon of C6H12O6 in it, but my mom wasn't watching so that didn't count... ;o)

Hiya Stray: What's in the luggage cake? A sugar rush? ;oD
