538. Cake decorating


Hazel took a course in cake decorating. It was an interest, a hobby. She made boxes and boxes of marzipan rose petals and leaves. She used some to decorate a cake. It was gorgeous.

When you don’t have any friends, there are only so many cakes one can decorate. Hazel did another cake, but, damn it, why bother? No one she knew wanted a wedding cake, or a birthday cake, or even a beautifully decorated day-to-day cake. People still preferred to pay hundreds of dollars for a professionally decorated wedding cake. Hazel would have gladly done it for nothing.

She took her boxes of marzipan rose petals and leaves, and her two decorated cakes, and fed them to the chickens.

These days she watches television.
