The 88th day of my celebratory journey was yet another rainy one.
Like fucking downpour. Like I had to turn back to get an umbrella and still was soaked when I got to school kinda rain.
So over it.
It was National Lemon Chiffon Day, which was quite the mission.
I searched high and low. I went all through Granville Island Farmers Market, I popped into the vegan gluten free bakery by my gym, and tried Whole Foods. There were no Lemon Chiffon cakes to be had, or any lemon anything, really.
I refused to make a whole cake on this day because
a) I don’t even like lemon cakes
b) I still have god damn chocolate covered raisin oatmeal cookies left from last baking episode
c) time was of the essence
So I bought a small piece of junky cheapy vanilla cake from Safeway that had putrid lemon frosting splurged on top of it and cheated.
I sliced up a real lemon to try and make amends with myself for failing on this plight.
It was a really shitty cake. The icing was definitely made of lard and the stuff that could turn a few unassuming little pet shop turtles into Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, & Raphael.
And I ‘hate ate’ it too.
