There’s nothing quite like a good sponge cake.
It’s familiar. It’s comfortable. It’s versatile. It’s a safety net when you’re not sure what cake to choose. Frankly, it’s a classic.
But how many of you out there would really choose a sponge cake over, say, a chocolate fudge cake? Or a cheesecake? Or a lemon drizzle?
Let’s look at that lemon drizzle for a second.
At its core it is a sponge cake: familiar and comforting. But the truth is, it’s so much more than that. It glistens with an exotic promise. The juxtaposition of sour and sweet will revitalise your senses. Your tongue will tingle with the tanginess of the lemon, and will be soothed by the sweetness of the sugar. Lemon drizzle is refreshing, moreish, and frankly an exciting cake.
But what’s wrong with a sponge cake?
If you choose the sponge cake because you love sponge cake more than the others then well done, you may exit here safe in the knowledge that you’re on the right track.
But if you choose the sponge cake because you fear the unfamiliarity of others, then heed our advice…
Make the change. Dare to try what makes you happy. It might be scary, but often the best things are. What is unfamiliar is only unfamiliar because you haven’t given it chance to be familiar. Being safe and comfortable in an old routine is fine for a time but will only lead to a life unfulfilled.
Dare to be happy. Enjoy the sponge, but don’t be afraid of the lemon drizzle.
