Sandra Lane's second sculpture to celebrate the everyday and overlooked decorates Angel Hill.
In your little pink shell-like.
It may seem nice-iced, but don’t risk a tooth, don’t dent a denture.
For though this swirly nugget seems so sweet,
I fear it will not dissolve with the quick tongue-tip-hit that you imagine.
The cake that it graced was a permanent cake.
A hard-as-rock cake.
This has toppled off to torment the taste buds with its twee teasing twist and
Yum, yum, crunch…ouch.
