Lemon polenta cake

Downhearted from the failure of the simple domestic task of making homemade muesli, My Eco Self sneaks out to the local shop and buys a lemon polenta cake to pass off as my own to the domestic achievers. “What have you been doing with yourself?” asks one mum with baby to another. “I’ve been selling cakes to one of the local delis,” she replies. My attention is attracted, having started to lose interest due to excessive baby talk, and sizes up domestic mum friend as a possible source for cupcake baking. Suddenly My Eco Self remembers that domestic mum lives equidistant from the new deli with lemon polenta cake for sale. Mum is looking her straight in the eye as she says, “This cake is delicious.” “Anyone for more jasmine tea?” I ask.
