I'd like to think that this cake really does have lots and lots of separate little layers, each one wrapped in its own pretty tissue paper just a little different than the one below it.
This is absolutely the right way to walk down the street with a snack. All snacks should be expressive of who we are on the inside. Why can't food be just as much an accessory as a pair of earrings? It's temporary, sure, but that is a tasty expression right there.
