Charli at Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction: March 16, 2018, prompt – In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about carrot cake. It can be classic or unusual. Why is there cake? How does it feature in the story? Go where the prompt leads.
My husband loves carrot cake. He tries to reduce his sugar intake and he thinks that carrot cake is unlike any other sugary cakes.
Here comes my story:
“What do you want for dessert, Mimi? Do you like carrot cake?”
“Noop! When I want to have dessert, I have dessert.”
“When do you mean? Carrot cake is dessert!”
“See, Nancy. My mom grows carrots. When she makes carrot cake, she is very generous to put triple portions of grated carrots into the cake mix. The cake tastes just like carrots, you know! When I eat cake, I eat cake. When I eat carrots, I eat carrots. I just don’t eat carrot cake.”
“Oh, no wonder, Mimi! Here, try my carrot CAKE that doesn’t have the carrot taste!”
