A Cake for Charles Darwin

This is the cake I baked last year for Darwin Day (February 12th):

    That is, by far, the most awesome Darwin cake I have ever seen. Could you do a Lamarck cake?

    Was that chocolate cake?

    I assume it was selected against by virtue of being eaten?

    I wanted to say something about sexual selection and your baking ability, but I better shut up right now….

    I am sure I could do Lamarck, it was chocolate, it was selected against, and yes, Darwin Day is one of the few days you’ll find me in the kitchen…

    I take no pleasure while we can, but I guess did not like:)

    The cake is superb Jennifer. Few days in the kitchen is all you should be doing, you have a PHD to prepare.
    I like to look of the cake, mine would have look like dark and white chocolate sprayed with a gun 🙂

    what a mess it is necessary to be more sensitive to this environment in Southern Asia is not sensitive to the living environment, I never even washed the dirty brook
