Life's pleasures are elusive, even for the rich and powerful who boast bountiful handbag and jewelry collections to millions of Instagram followers. That's why it's important to enjoy the seemingly simple pleasures in life, because when celebrities do, it immediately becomes worthy of breaking news.
Cake is very important, you see. The combination of eggs, flour, sugar, and a dash of milk is a shining example of chemistry in action. Cake is love embodied gastronomically — the layers bonded with sweet frosting symbolize togetherness forever. Eating cake is more than just an indulgence; it's significant.
While lavishly celebrating her boyfriend Tyga's son, King Cairo's third birthday, Kylie took a break to enjoy some cake. It was a beautiful and pure moment that holds a lot of value that we can learn from.
Maybe we should start eating cake like Kylie too. Maybe we should purchase black Birkins too. Maybe we should smear cake on ourselves and learn to love, learn to live, and learn to laugh.
Thank you, Kylie.
