I want you to meet someone.
Not a person, strictly speaking.
Reader, allow me to cordially introduce you to “Finger-lickin’ Good Strawberry Shortcake,” to be known henceforth as the VICTOR of Marathon Girl’s department’s Annual Bake-Off! (Victory for the Forces of Democratic Freedom!)
Picture it (the cake, not the department) on this cake plate. It was very elegant, but it had to be transferred to a Tupperware container to be transported.
The “finger-lickin'” part of the name is IN NO WAY an allusion to what happened to Marathon Girl’s finger during the baking process. It is just a coincidence.
