just add sprinkles

I’m not much of a cake decorator. I made this chocolate cake for my son’s birthday, but after applying the frosting, I felt like it wasn’t especially festive. It looked more like a large, brown hockey puck. So, I found myself some candy sprinkles (a pantry staple around here), and started throwing fistfuls at the cake. As you can see, enough of them stuck to make a decent presentation, though a good 75% of the sprinkles ended up on the counter and the floor.

There’s a metaphor for academic work in there somewhere.
