It's The Orange Peel In The Cake That Makes The Difference

it's the orange peel in the cake that makes the difference
sniffed the witch I wouldn't know I can barely fry an egg
though I long to see the pale pink shining through of

the egg fried just enough.
just enough, the witch brewed tea with cinnamon
and something, I'm not sure, a whiff of something...

never mind. her pies are perfect.
she'll win every prize
for the raspberry dazzle drizzled with

cream and honey baked words to match.
oooh. only made from Scratch
she is matchless, never cooking with gas

and the queen
of home economics.
