Cake adoration

This woman sat, almost guarding an Oberweis box. Now Oberweis is an amazing cake shop in Luxembourg. I can personally vouch for their eclairs.

Her friend joined her and she opened the box and lovingly displayed the cakes. They both gazed at them with utter reverence, then started to take photos of them, from many angles, before finally closing the lid and carrying them away.

I saw them again later, still cradling the box. I hope the pleasure they got from eating was equal to the moment.


  1. Well they do say anticipation is the greater part of pleasure... and now they get the memory to drool over too. Though this elongated consumption is a little like someone filming their girlfriend to enjoy her again and again. I wonder if they'll post their photos on YouTube?
