But, no, Burgess fans, it is not a Clockwork ORANGE Cake, although that would have been good, too: it was a Clockwork Chocolate-Cherry Cake, which was thouroughly delicious. (Sorry, it's all gone now--.)
I thought of telling our guests that whomever got the mainspring would be the King, but didn't want to temper their enjoyment of it in any fashion--.
The next question is, now that we have seen a Clockwork Cake, what would a Cakework Clock consist of? Now THAT would be Mad Science. (or would it be Mad Cooking?)
