Today, my boss brought us some small cakes from a recent trip to China. I opened mine and noticed a little foil packet wrapped with the cake, so I thought it was a powdered topping. I had a couple of bites before my coworker told me it was actually a desiccant to keep the cakes fresh. FML

  • It's probably best to avoid the cake altogether. The white powder is actually a preservative, as you said, but the flour is just ground up caryopsis, or grain, which was a seed to preserve the species from which it was harvested. The milk that was taken from a cow was intended to preserve its calfs, and the eggs were chicken menstruation—failed attempts to copulate and preserve the chicken lineage. If you think about it, /all/ is preservation…

    Well, have a nice day!
