"Sotheby's, they make good cake"--Kramer, on "Seinfeld"

I had the best cake ever today at the Neue Gallerie on 86th and 5th, where I also saw the Comic Grotesque exhibit. The exhibit was interesting, but I'm better at describing cake than art, so here goes. It was dark chocolate and hazelnut, with alternating thin layers of a chocolate icing that was more of a soft, shiny dark chocolate than an icing, and hazelnut cake, with a tiny piece of decorative gold leaf pressed onto the outer layer of chocolate. Now, I don't even usually like cake, but this went beyond cake and into, well, art.
