I stopped at a local bakery to buy 6 cupcakes to take to a party that I never made it to due to the BLIZZARD. While I was there I noticed slices of coffee cake and I bought 2. The clerk was careful to tell me that there was no coffee in the coffee cake. I asked why would there be coffee in coffee cake? She replied that so many customers don't know what coffee cake is and all I could think was that THE WORLD HAS GONE TO POT!
