National Chocolate Cake Day


Make no mistake,
today is the day
for chocolate cake.
I'm off to the kitchen,
I'm going to bake
my very own
chocolate cake.
The frosting 
I will also make
to decorate
my chocolate cake.
And if you find
you'd like some too
hurry on over
I've a slice for you.

  Did you know today is National Chocolate Cake Day?  To celebrate there are three things to do:
1. Bake a chocolate cake.
2. Frost a chocolate cake.
3. Eat chocolate cake.

It's my kind of day.  Did you know I love chocolate?  What is your favorite dessert?  Today feels like a food poem kind of day to me.  Can you try writing a poem today about food?  Did your dog ever eat your dessert? 
I took cupcakes to a meeting recently and a woman was there with her service dog who promptly tried to steal a cupcake off the table.  Now there is a poem I should write.


It is Friday and Carol Varsalona is hosting Poetry Friday.  You can find more poems at her blog Beyond Literacy Link.  Thanks Carol for hosting us.

Be the joy someone needs in their life today.


  1. Oh, chocolate cake day! Make mine gluten-free and I'm SO in!
    Hope you get to drop by and savor "wear loose clothing and a smile" in poems today!

  2. Today is the day to celebrate! I think I am going to skip to step 3 - I'll let someone else do steps 1 and 2. Thanks for the drool inducing poem, Joy. =)

  3. Chocolate cake is my weakness - really anything chocolate is but I do love to make chocolate cakes. A delightful poem that makes me hungry for sugar.

  4. Yum! I would love to come right over for a slice of chocolate cake. Somehow I missed out on celebrating today but maybe I can join in tomorrow!

  5. And I missed it! Any leftovers?

  6. How did I miss National Chocolate Cake Day??? Very 'sweet' poem, Joy!
