Oh, Christmas Tree

I haven’t posted in a couple of weeks because I’ve been writing my day job but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been enjoying the junk food. It’s peak sweet season and there's no way I’m letting this one get by me without sampling as many seasonal treats as possible. 

For example, the Little Debbie Christmas Tree Cake only comes around once a year and a man would be a fool to miss it. I’m not necessarily a big white cake fan (oh, it’s fine and all but I usually like my cake to have a little color to it) but there’s something perfect about the pair of thin slices of white cake with crème filling slathered between, encased in a layer of white icing, stripped with red and decorated with green sugar sprinkles. 

It tastes great and it’s fun to eat. The icing resists the bite a little - just the perfect amount - then your teeth sink right in. I love to push my tongue through the crème between the layers before I chew and feel (and hear) the sugar crystals pop under my molars. That’s some very merry masticating!
