The Pastry Chef and the Business Man

– Chapter Four –

 

The pastry chef who purchased the little patisserie was sad because he always worked so hard beating and whipping and baking and icing because he wanted to earn a reputation for his little patisserie as the best patisserie ever purchased by a pastry chef.

The pastry chef who purchased the little patisserie was sad the very official looking business man was offended because the (almost) absolutely most magnificent cake there has ever been was – well – not the (almost) absolutely most magnificent cake there has ever been, but because he still wanted to earn a reputation for his little patisserie as the best patisserie ever purchased by a pastry chef, the pastry chef who purchased the little patisserie quickly went about making another cake.

He worked through some of the night, beating and whipping and baking and icing and making a new cake that was – well – a little less than almost the absolutely most magnificent cake there has ever been and in the morning he was ready to another cake to the very official looking business man.

Again at 9:00 am sharp, the little door bell jingled as the very official looking business man stepped into the little patisserie purchased by the pastry chef.

“Here is (and once again he almost said ‘almost’) the absolutely most magnificent cake there has ever been,” said the pastry chef who purchased the little patisserie.

“It’s a double layered chocolate cake with royal icing and roses carefully crafted for your wife’s birthday..”

“Oh no, that won’t do,” said the very official looking business man with his big, booming voice.

“My wife hates roses!

“Make it again, I’ll be back tomorrow.”

And with that, he spun upon his heels and the little door bell jingled as the very official looking business man walked out of the little patisserie purchased by the pastry chef.
