Let Us Eat Cake


There's a whole lot of controversy over who, exactly, said "Let them eat cake" though when confronted with the pastry case at the Demel, Vienna's famous bakery, it's not surprising that Marie Antoinette gets all the credit. After all, she was an Austrian princess.

We've just come to the end of a two week cake eating binge. We estimate that we consumed nearly 30 different varieties of cake, with not one repetition. In case you think we're total gluttons, we didn't eat 30 individual slices per - we had four people and ate our cake family style. It was four slices per sitting. It's still a hell of a lot of cake, but how can you limit yourself?

Note to Vienna bound honeymooners: Do not miss the Demel.
