Yes, I am making a cake.

Yes, it has maple and bacon.*

Yes, the frosting, simple syrup and secret bacon-related component are done.

No, I did not read the instructions properly and fucked up the cake part but good.

No, I will not be re-making the cake tonight because my in-laws have kindly invited us to a hearty dinner at Applebees.

Ergo, you will have your maple-bacon cake tomorrow.

Thank you and good night.

*Also bourbon.
