We do not ask for what useful purpose the birds do sing, for song is their pleasure since they were created for singing. Similarly, we ought not to ask why the human mind troubles to fathom the secrets of the heavens. The diversity of the phenomena of nature is so great and the treasures hidden in the heavens so rich precisely in order that the human mind shall never be lacking in fresh nourishment.

velodrome cake

damnfinepieceofpie:

For @spandelles' birthday, this Saturday. Madeira cake with marzipan boards and details in fondant (and non-edible advertising hoardings!). The long-suffering French model cyclists are brought into service again, along with some conscripts from the kids' Lego collection to make up the audience.

(Oddly, it looks flatter in the photos; the banking’s quite steep in reality.)
