Tuna Sandwich dressed as a Slice of Cake

When I think of all the energy I wasted on hoping that other people would like me, I just laugh at myself. What a silly thing to invest in. Why be sweet when you can be sassy? Tuna salad sandwich is the sassiest thing I could think of. It is fishy smelly. It is the sourness of lemon juice. The bite of green onions. A sandwich that leaves a mark on your tongue long after you have finished eating. Sweetness of a different kind. Sweet without sugar. Something authentic is brewing between those slices of bread. A tangy bolt of energy that connects you with the vibrancy of life. Protected between slices of bread. Hidden. Every bite a new surprise. To increase the cake effect, I made a triple layer sandwich. It gave the creation extra height. When my husband came from work, he thought that it was a slice of cake with chocolate sauce, this made me sooooooooooooooooo happy. My visual deception is a success.
