Did you ever just need a solution that works for ANY problem you might have in your life?

Now, you may be thinking just any chocolate cake will do, but that isn’t the case. It has to be a specific kind of chocolate cake, with fudgy dark chocolate, rich and decadent, almost sinful to eat it, smothered with thick rich dark chocolate whipped frosting, and drizzled with… You guessed it, more fudgy chocolate sauce.
Nothing less works. Nothing else will do.
It’s gotta be THAT cake.
Moist rich, fudgy and decadent chocolate cake, chocolate frosting – you know the kind – it’s so chocolatey and rich your teeth go into a frenzy when you take the first bite, and they don’t stop frenzy-ing until you’ve finished off the whole cake.
And the secret…
Do you know the secret to making sure your chocolatey rich cake stays moist and delicious until the very last bite?
There is a secret… And it’s the final grasp of reality you need to know, all figured out and ready to solve your problems…
The secret to keeping your rich, chocolaty fudge cake moist and delicious until the very last bite, is to eat it all in one setting, just like Oris George does!
Can’t imagine how much this guy likes to ‘keep busy’ with ‘stuff about the house. But one of his favorite ‘entrapments’ is the Treadle Machine.
A singer sewing machine that stitches fine white muslin into perfectly square and useful tea towels, with embroidered embellishments.
Then he said he was selling these decadent clothes for $7.50 just to decorate the front of the cook stove. I’m an old fashioned kind of girl, so I can’t imagine having a tea towel without a tea party – you know, the kind where pink roses, delicate china cups and saucers, with tea that fills the room with sweet aromas, and tea cakes? Yes, tea cakes, those delicate, tiny little decadent cakes that are gone in two bites? Yeah, those.
So, we discussed his towels, and what the average girl of this century would do with them. I said, finger towels at a party, or a cup towel for drying the finer china in my kitchen (I don’t have a lot, but I do have a few delightfully well painted little cups in there). But he wasn’t so sure.
So, I’ll leave it up to you, whether you want to use them to decorate the rail across the front of your stove or to dry your most delicate china. You decide.
Then… of course, we asked Addie what she would do. And the little miss had an opinion all her own. She said, “Well, let me see if they’re soft, and if they should be used for babies. If they should, then I’d use one to wipe my chin, or to catch a drip from my cup, or maybe to catch a crumb from my cake. But I’d definitely use them frequently. I like tea clothes.
And that’s what Addie said.
Take it or leave it… That’s up to you, but she had an opinion to share.
She also suggested that Oris should come for a visit, to see her soon, all the way to her house.
