Cake like a stack of shirts for my dear dear brother. He memorizes the world Almanac every year and knows more about cars and roads and historic events than any expert. He is a man of routine, so he pretty much knows where he will be and what he will do at 3:00pm on a thursday afternoon. We need predictable routines to feel safe and secure, organized, in control, and confident in who and what is in our lives. Isn’t it annoying and anxiety-provoking when change comes along and messes with us? Maybe the reason we resist change is because it takes us out of our comfort zone.
So let us routinely try something new; like this cake. It is an orange fruit cake with almonds, cranberry raisins and figs. Filling was orange whip cream.
