For Super Tuesday, sardonic food writer Michael Procopio presents an excellent Rick-Santorum-themed cake recipe.

Michael was previously on the blue with his piece on delicious faggots.

The author is aware of the fact that macadamia trees are native to Australasia. They are, however, grown in the United States proper (California) and what some might consider the United States improper (Hawai’i).

I demand to see the long form propagation certificate.

I clicked on the link after all. It actually isn't a bad recipe, and the humor is largely about...things other than what you're thinking.

I'd've thought the tunnel of fudge cake more appropriate.

Michael Procopio is one of my very favorite "internet writers" or however we term them. His love cake entry was hilarious and I just adore men with stories to tell about Blossom Dearie.

There's actually no froth at all. All you folks hesitating to click have nothing to fear. I for one am disappointed.

Should I grease up the bundt or loaf pan?

Is this the part where there are going to be hundreds of butt jokes that posters pat themselves on the backs for, like they were the first ones to ever think of them?

Crazy cake is my go-to chocolate cake recipe. It's seriously delicious stuff. I wish he would have made fun of some other cake. :(

In light of recent evidence, the posterior probability is high.

There is neither Santorum in this cake nor Super in this Tuesday.

Canola oil? as in Canadian Oil, Low Acid?

This recipe should only contain West Texas Intermediate.

Can also be used as a wedding cake if you want your marriage annulled by the President.

The left is sick and eager to spread filth, as this thread shows. Santorum is totally more Boston cream pie that's been through a blender, also.

crush-onastick: That Blossom Dearie story might be the best thing I read all year. It's certainly the best thing I've read so far this year. And that Gin Blossom Dearie recipe is making my toes curl.

I was lucky enough to see Blossom Dearie perform at that exact same cabaret (Danny's Skylight Room) about two years before she died. One of the high points of the show was her cover of Sting's "La Belle Dame Sans Merci," which she prefaced by noting wistfully how much she'd love to perform it as a duet with Sting. Why that piker Sting wasn't on the next plane to New York to perform with her, I will never understand.

Back to the funny cake jokes now. And fer cryin' out loud, folks, just click on the link. It's a perfectly nice cake.

I've never had sardonic food before. Is it bitter or just caustic?

I resent this post: I've made this cake many a time when baked good emergencies struck, only I learned it from the I Hate to Cook Cookbook, which I got from my dearly-beloved, super-moxified great aunt who was one hell of a merry spinster. It's funny reading, but some of those recipes are ghastly sounding.

Yay, quasi-run-on sentences!

Wacky cake is my go-to chocolate cake recipe. It´s the first thing my mom taught me to bake as a kid, so I have a deep and abiding love for it. When I realized many years later that it´s vegan, that just made it even better. In fact, I just made one tonight, inspired by this post, except subbing mint extract for the vanilla. Nom nom nom.

My recipe does not use nuts, but I may have to modify it sometime just to make cheap ¨nuts in the hole¨ jokes.

Also, for people complaining about lack of froth, did you not see the part where you mix the vinegar and baking soda together?

I'm surprised it took as many as seven comments for someone to make a "tunnel of fudge" reference. It's right there on the Hershey Highway!

This reminds me of my Herman Cain-themed pizza idea: For $9.99 you get half the dough, double cheese, and extra unwelcome sausage.

If there's ever going to be a MetaFilter thread that I can link to www.cakefarts.com from, this would be it. (Link NSFW, also Not Safe For Pastry, or General Mental Health for that matter.)
