As a first class curmudgeon, it falls on me to tell you how much it disturbs me that YULE LOG CAKES are commonly decorated with candy mushrooms. Why is this disturbing? Well, mainly because these cake generally look like big logs of crap.
It isn't really appetizing to me. If we are talking about magic mushrooms, well, that's different. Those are supposed to sprout from piles of cow shit. In any case, any log related cake should not be festooned with fake mushrooms dusted with cocoa powder.
