Oh Fudge! It’s Chocolate Cake Time Already? - A SceneEats Guide

While the infamous French queen may not have grasped the struggles of the poor, she intuitively understood one life-affirming truth - that chocolate cake possesses a restorative power like no other. Over the years, the meaning of pure joy has become muddled with convoluted notions like fulfillment and self-actualisation (Blekh! All fluff). But the simple pleasures in life have always guided us truer than any philosophical musings ever could. Chief among these pleasures lies chocolate cake.   In these trying times, when each day brings new anxieties, chocolate cake is the relief we all seek. And for this reason, and this reason alone, we say, "Let them eat cake!" and direct you to the finest spots in town for your much-needed cake fix.
