Fashion Statement

I'd heard so much about the Monarch Cake Shop's plum cake that I knew a visit was compulsory, but when I got there, the chocolate kugelhopf winked at me. Imagine my joy when I discovered they sell cake slices by weight! In a show of unusual restraint, I limited myself to only moderately ridiculous slices of each. First I tucked into the plum slice - moist vanilla cake studded with poached plums - divine. Then I devoured the chocolate slice which was less satisfying. I call it my two-course lunch. Several hours later, after I'd traipsed around most of Melbourne, I met up with Georgia, whose words of greeting were "is that chocolate on your chin?"
