ll: hey, matt look, Dr. Pepper Cake! (makes "that's gross!" face)|
me: ooh! (puts in basket)
ll: (looks horrified)
me: That's what you get for making it like a dare!
ll: I wanted you to be horrified.
me: I don't have a good relationship with fear.
I don't understand the drinks of these young people today.
(Actually, the cake doesn't sound bad to me. I'm thinking spice cake.)
The cake sounds okay to me, but it sounds like something one would make rather than buy. I think it would also need whole (pitted) cherries in it, and chocolate icing.
It would become less horrifying. The whole point is its unnatural-ness, from the neon yellow and pinkish red swirl bundt, to the spoogey icing, to the fact that somewhere in it is HFCS and caffeiney goodness. That, topped with the fact that it has a distinctive taste of almond/marzipan about it (makes me think "cyanide"), and that someone dubbed it "cherry-vanilla Dr Pepper cake", completes the madness.
The 7-up cake and Orange Crush cake are not even mentioned.
There's a wings place near us, Pluckers, that has a variety of sauces including a Dr. Pepper sauce. Unbelievably, it tastes exactly like Dr. Pepper and leaves a comfortable amount of heat behind in your mouth after you've eaten it. :)
