Quadrille Cheating

Drizzling icing on a cake
seems a bit like cheating
but saves the frustration
of frosting pulling up bits of cake top
as the spatula slides along
layer to layer

___________________

I cheated. For this to be a Quadrille, you must count these words, too.

    You don’t need 44 words to spread your words; so cool–kudos for your poetic brevity.

  8. I have trouble getting my 44 words to work the way I want. How you manage 30 is beyond me… But then again, I also save the frosting for someone else! 😮

  12. I have never iced a cake but I can imagine how a spatula might pick up pieces of the cake if things are too sticky.
