    I don't think I could eat it, it's too lifelike.

    :surprised

    Would you eat this Albino Burmese Python? It's sweet and tasty; seriously!

    Probably, but only after making sure it was actually cake.

    It's not made with snake in any way right?

    Either way, no.

    I always hated the smell of snakes. It's a similar smell that climbing rope makes when it passes trough the carabiner too fast.

    I haves confession. I don't like chocolate cake. Chocolate frosting is fine, but I don't like chocolate batter.

    I like really dense dark chocolate cake. But I agree, most chocolate cake batters aren't that tasty.

    Actually was probably the sticht plate or the figure eight. Been a while. It heats up and releases an aroma from the friction. Not sure if the aroma actually comes from the belay device or the rope itself.

    I hope this helps.

    Evo, I challenge you to find a cake I wouldn't eat.

    Doesn't the smell come mostly from what is on the rope? Sweat, biological matter from handling it or laying it on the ground. Been awhile since I was on-rope.

    Yeah, I'd eat the cake. Might even try some snake if it is properly prepared....

    Let's derail this thread into something more tasty.

    I shouldn't really comment because you guys aren't talking about the same "chocolate cake" as I am thinking of. When I went to the US the desserts were very odd, but all the rest of the food was incredible, absolutely incredible. Every day I was there I ate as much food as I possibly could without getting sick. I guess because in Ireland the food is relatively tasteless we make up for it by having fantastic desserts.

    I grew up in a family with a mother that is a fantastic cook. Even though she is in her late 80s now, she is still one of the best cooks I know. With a father and 5 sons, deserts were always around. By far, the favorite desert was her yellow cake with chocolate icing. BUT, we also knew the family mantra "there are no bad deserts, just some that go faster than others" :smile:

    Yes, I'd give that cake a try :approve:

    Pi are square. The corners are too sharp.
