Dreaming of White

I saw the most beautiful woman last night at The Bank. It was like a vision. Her curly blonde locks flowed over her shoulders and her eyes danced wickedly in the low light. A half-smoked cigarette touched her lips and at that moment I wished that I was like the cake I had made that very afternoon - smooth and sensible, delicately balanced with a hint of zest.

A yoghurt souffle cake for TongueTicklers FIC - White. King Island yoghurt, minimal butter and sugar. Sensible. Breaking through the cracked and sunken crust reveals a delightfully creamy interior which appears to melt on contact with the tongue. Smooth. And well, the zest speaks for itself.
