R.I.P., Deana the Cake

My birthday cake was such a powerful presence that she became like a member of the family during the month of March. I feel it is only right to memorialize her with a formal obituary.

Deana, known to friends and loved ones as “MMMM…good,” died of consumption at 17 days old in Huntington, NY.

Deana was born in Albany, NY at X’s to O’s Vegan Bakery (expertly “Cake Wrecked” and named after an intentional misspelling of her recipient’s name). She spent her early life under the care of B.H. before moving to Long Island at the age of one day. A worldly cake, parts of Deana traveled to PA, through NJ and back to NY.

She was known for her chocolately, peanut-buttery goodness, rich moist texture, sublime frosting, and for weighing nearly half as much as Dana herself. Deana had the ability to elicit copious praise and satisfied moans from all who crossed her path. Her hobbies included making people smile, filling stomachs and ruining diets.

She was a resilient treat who thrived in trains, refrigerators, counter tops, car seats and freezers with perfect elegance and not a bit of flavor lost. She also enjoyed a brief modeling stint on the X’s to O’s facebook page. Deana is survived by her loving family: D.A, B.H. and L.P.

Memorial service to take place 3/31/10…in the dishwasher.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you please send donations from X’s to O’s.

  1. Deana will be missed. But I look forward to devouring her children, cousins, brothers, sisters, half-siblings, step-siblings, aunts, uncles, second cousins, grand children, adopted children, foster children, red-headed step children, great grand children, great-great grand children, and so on. May they all be so tasty.

  2. lol!!!!!! You both crack me up.
