Why all this masquerade I ask? Are we a parcel of children that we require victuals in the shape of toys? Is it because of the cook’s ancient, but silly, privilege to show us they, too, can be painters and sculptors?  No, it is because of our insane desire to dish up everything in some astonishing way-what things taste like matters not.

All of this is vanity, humbug, and affectation, if we would only be candid enough to own it. ~Grid, 1893

Stuffed peacocks probably fall into this category, and Cake Wars, this quote is for you, too!
