Day Two: Too Many Cooks Is An Antiquated Concept


(Prompt: Write a poem inspired by or in the form of a recipe.)


Do you feel lost?


As if the world around you has been conspiring,

Edging itself, bit by bit,

Off its axis

So that one day it might escape you?

The ‘It Takes A Village’ Cake is here to help.

Created by a team,

A family, really,

Who know


The cake will bring together

Your family, friends, and life


All you need is:

  • 1200 eggs
  • 800 cups of pastry flour (unbleached)
  • 650 cups of unrefined sugar
  • 500 cups of milk
  • A cow (optional)
  • 300 lbs of butter
  • 400 cups of icing sugar
  • 863 bottles of vanilla
  • 458 lbs of unsweetened chocolate
  • 200 lbs of gummy worms
  • 300 000 candy lego blocks
  • At least 1 vat of Pixie Stix
  • The largest lace curtains you can find for sifting
  • A cement mixer

And 80 of your closest friends.

Good luck!
