Truth? Seattle can be dreary in the winter. Especially after Christmas, when all of the holiday lights come down. Actually, it is this Spy's firm belief that this is a big part of the reason that coffee and pastries have such a big presence in the Emerald city: we have to keep warm and cheerful somehow.
And today, I decided to make my cold-and-rainy commute to CakeSpy Shop a bit funner by leaving a little sweetness in my wake. Sidewalk chalk in hand, I made the world (and my walk) just a little sweeter, like so:

a manhole got turned into a cake-hole;
a tagged doorway got a sugar-coating;
...of course, at one point I did have to tell Cuppie that he was a bit behind the times...
Cuppie found a waffle in the urban wilderness;
instead of stop, I said "GO!" to sweetness;
...and though it's not necessarily cake-related, I left an optimistic note of sweetness for whoever might happen upon it:
These sidewalk chalk tributes likely washed away quickly, but talk about a way to brighten up a rainy day!
