Grow Your Own Flour Little Annie made a cake, a cake that was not hard to bake. In went flower, chopped - not whole - then some more stuff - filled the bowl. From the oven, here it came, a smelly mess - quite a shame. 'Twas an insult to one's nose. Annie'd flowered with a rose. Annie's cookbook was at fault. She thought at first - too much salt. But no, it was the cookbook's spelling. Flour-flower - real hard telling. * * * * * * * * * * A good motto might be, put your reading glasses on before you bake your next cake. * * * * * * * * * * Image source: my Broderbund DVD

Rose water, perhaps, but the whole rose is a thornier matter. A pleasant little ditty.

@pgntwo - Well, if a person is going to bake a cake, they should try to stick to the task.

@Ceerios I guess the batter could've gotten a little sticky :)

@pgntwo - Yes indeed, it could have been productive of a nourishing sort of cake, the kind of cake that sticks to the ribs.

@jaboUK - Ms Janet - Indeedy. Either read it properly or head down to the market and buy a ready-baked cake. The picture looks to be of a "finger painting" - maybe of a bowl just full up to its top rim with chopped rose stuff.
