A MAN in his 50s has been devastated after discovering the cake he admitted tasted great contained no animal products.
Norman Steele was tricked into eating, and deriving pleasure from, the cake by his 22-year-old daughter Lucy, who deviously hid the cake’s true nature so he was forced against his will to taste it with an open mind.
He said: “It’s not fair. She’s not even vegan. There was no way I could have known.
“It’s the shame of it all. I openly volunteeed that it was delicious. That it had a lovely moist texture. That the frosting was really creamy. I asked Lucy what her secret ingredient was, and that’s when my world came crashing down.
“Why would she do it? If I’d known it was vegetables I’d never have touched it. I definitely wouldn’t have liked it. What now? Do I have to try other things in case I like them, like liberalism or microdosing LSD?
“I could have really savoured slagging off that cake and telling her Norm’s a man not a rabbit. Now I’m a traitor to myself. What next? Bloody soy milk?”
Lucy said: “For now I’d better keep to myself that it was gluten-free.”
