Tortilla Cake

"Do you want some cake?"

"What kind is it Grandma?

"Jello Cake"

"I don't like that."

"Have you ever tried it?"

"No, but I don't like it."

"Sh^&%^, how do you know? Cake, good, icing good, jello good. What do you want, boy, one of those fancy, tortilla cakes?"

"Fat Cat, what are you talking about?"

"If he don't want this good cake, then he is nuts"

"No, I mean what is a tortilla cake?

"You know those fancy ones with the tortilla on the top."

"No, I don't know."

"Yes you do, you made one, it was nasty, you had a big cake and you wrapped it in a tortilla thing"

"I have never made a cake wrapped in a tortilla, that would be a burrito."

"That is like a sandwich this is a cake. Not a taco shell, it was round and white."

"That is a tortilla."

"I know that is what I am telling you."

"But not on a cake."

"yes, you did, you rolled it all out and put it on around the cake."

"Are you talking about that Fondant Icing? The white sheet of icing that you put on wedding cakes?"

"If that is what you want to call it. But I'll take a piece of this pudding cake."

"It is a jello cake"
