So Mason, otherwise known as my coworker whom I am trying to seduce, is leaving our work place, and we’re having a going away party for him on Tuesday. Because he is a dear friend, I would like to prepare him a special treat for his departure. The party is a dinner party and there’s already going to be a cake, but I wanted to give him something to bring home–and also something to show off my excellent culinary skills.
Unfortunately, I am unfamiliar with Mason’s palate as he isn’t the type of guy I generally roll with (he’s more of a “typical male” type than the guys in my crowd and I don’t believe he has any “foodie” tendencies) so I don’t really know what to make him; I do think he’d prefer something simple and traditional, so I thought I’d make strawberry scones. However, I also found this awesome-looking cake and thought he’d appreciate it. I don’t personally enjoy cake so I was leaning towards the scones, but my (male) friend told me he’d enjoy the cake far more.
So that is where you come in, dear readers. Yes, I’m sadly indecisive…but I could seriously use some help here because I don’t think my perspective or that of my friends is very helpful here and I want to make him something he’ll like! So, please vote on which treat you’d prefer!
The choices are:
I would like it to come out looking like this, but I have a feeling it will end up being more similiar to the following photo:
Which is still a really rad-looking cake!
Not AS exciting to look at, but certainly delicious!!
So I hope you enjoyed this gustatory pornography as much as I did…and please vote in my incredibly important poll!
