Reconsidering Cakes

You make a good point that cakes are traditionally sweet and not savory.  In fact, this is the historical demarcation between bread and cakes, one is savory and the other is sweet.  Perhaps my 4/15 cake was more like a lemon bread?  So this week, I will try to move my creation into the genre of cakes.  I am adding a second layer of lemon cake and an external icing.  The external icing will be a licorice flavored butter cream.  The butter cream icing will have the highest sugar content of any of the 3 major components of the cake.  So maybe my next mutation will be more appealing to you?
